They are mad, bad and dangerous to know. Actually, they are as fun a band that you will ever see and hear. Coming off an epic show at Punk in the park, get ready for Me First and the Gimme Gimmes!
The greatest cover band ever will play locally in Santa Ana on December 3rd, San Diego December 4th, or Los Angeles December 5th. Plenty of chances for you to see the punk supergroup live and in all their glory.
For those not as familiar with The Gimme’s as they should be, they are the most infamous cover group you’ll ever see and hear. Formed in 1995, the Gimme’s have covered some of the biggest songs of our lifetime and made them punk rock classics. Songs like, “I Believe I Can Fly,” “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” “Uptown Girl,” “Sweet Caroline,” “Kharma Chameleon,” “Rocket Man,” “Over the Rainbow,” “Nothing Compares 2U,” the list of great songs just goes on and on. The Gimme’s are a virtual cornucopia of music goodness.
Original member Spike Slawson is joined by C.J. Ramone (Ramones), John Reis (Rocket From the Crypt), Andrew “Pinch” Pinching (The Damned), and Jonny “2 Bags” Wickersham (Social Distortion). The band has not released an album since 2017’s “Rake It In: The Greatestest Hits,” so perhaps we will get news of a release at the shows. Surely they worked on something during the COVID era?
