The Bowery Electric
Thursday, October 13th
For one night only Joe will bring his show, which has played to rave reviews on the West Coast to The Bowery Electric for an intimate, one-night-only performance. The one-man show is based on Sib’s story growing up in the early 1980’s when the counterculture of skateboarding and punk rock hit the suburbs of California. Sib animates his verbal autobiography with 70+ photographs and limitless enthusiasm. It’s a universal and classic story about how music has the power to shape and define lives.
“I believe that everyone, at one point in their life, has loved a band or a song so much that it has become an obsession. California Calling is about my obsession with music,” says Sib. “It is my story about how music saved my life. Sounds heavy, right? Don’t worry, it’s not.”
Sib is the former frontman of the LA-based punk band WAX, a co-founder of the independent record label SideOneDummy Records (Flogging Molly, Gogol Bordello, The Gaslight Anthem), host of “Complete Control Radio”, which airs in seven different cities across the county. “Complete Control” is LA’s famed and only dedicated punk rock radio show.
The critically acclaimed show has already been through a successful residency a the Largo at the Coronet Theatre in Los Angeles, several nationwide tour dates (including both music venues and comedy clubs), a headlining slot at the 2011 San Francisco Sketch Comedy Fest, and a sold-out headlining performance at The Comedy Store in Los Angeles.
Over the next few weeks, The Laugh Button will bring exclusive material from Sib as well as offer up some chances to tickets to the show. You can also purchase tickets right here.
