Mindless Self Indulgence will be playing at the Ranch Bowl on May 20th. Kick ass! I haven’t seen too many bands live, but MSI puts on a great show. They pretty much have to since their music will never see radio play. They’ve toured with Insane Clown Posse and System of a Down, pissing off most of the audience, but converting the rest (at least the ones who could get past the ambiguous sexuality). I saw them a couple years ago headlining a show with Deadsy (ugh) and Dog Fashion Disco (sweet) supporting. Their latest album sounds pretty good and includes a cover of Tom Sawyer which I think they just played on tour to annoy Deadsy. I don’t think they’ll ever be able to match their original album. I wasn’t sure if I’d see a show at the Ranch Bowl before it closes, but I guess this will be the last for me. I’m sure seeing Jimmy Urine diving out of the ceiling girders will lift my heart though.
