What is there to say, really? It’s Mike effing Watt. Gone are his recent forays moonlighting with the Stooges and Kelly Clarkson (we think/hope?). These days, Watt is kicking out schizo punk jams plus the Missingmen, not to be confused with the Minutemen or the Secondmen. Live is likely the only place you’re going to hear the music, too, as Watt’s been plotting to record new songs since … well, since 2007. Then again, how else would you want to experience it than at close range? Stand within 10 feet of the stage and you’re guaranteed to get sweat on by arguably the greatest punk-rock bassist ever. 1400 Alhambra Boulevard,
