We’re thrilled to announce that the American punk rockband Me First and the Gimme Gimmes, consisting of punk legends Joey Cape and Dave Raun from Lagwagon, Jay Bentley from Bad Religion, Spike Slawson from Swingin’ Utters and Scott Shiflett from Face to Face will be visiting Scandinavia for shows in Malmoe, Gothenburg and Oslo.
Supergroup and coverband Me First and the Gimme Gimmes formed in 1995 with one single mission – to make all the other punk bands covering popular songs obsolete. Seven studio albums, one live record and countless singles later, they’ve tackled just about every genre under the sun. Be it Motown, Country, show tunes, Japanese Pop (sung in Japanese!), these seasoned punk rock pros have triumphed on every occasion in a way only the Gimmes could. And their primary goal to over shine the other cover bands is since long ago accomplished.
April 7th the MFGG released new collection album Rake It In: The Greatest Hits and there now embarking on a world tour. By the end of June they will have reached us up in the North, with shows in Malmö 27/6, Göteborg 29/6, and Oslo 28/6.
