Clip Job: The Defend Bob Dylan Rally! (Village Voice)

Maxwell's NJ A crazy dream come true! The legendary Trashmen make their first ever New York area appearances this weekend! They will be performing their spectacular hit "Surfin' Bird" and much more "Trashmen music" (as guitarist Tony Andreason refers to it). Having witnessed them perform live as recently as last fall, we can testify to their amazing live show. As if that's not enough already, Sundazed Records has been kind enough to press up a live EP featuring unreleased tracks that will be given away to ticket holders. And two of the greatest rock'n'roll bands in the land, The Hi-Risers and The Neanderthals are also on the bill! This could be the rock'n'roll show of the year, if not the decade!
The same line-up is also at Southpaw in Brooklyn on Friday...(Maxwell's)
