MJF: one of the few non-douchy celebrities we have.
Bands that play Studio Seven often have some of my favorite names: in the past month there's been This Band Is a Time Machine, SLAMFIST, and (my personal favorite) A City Screams In Terror. But yesterday while I was updating our show listings, I came upon a band playing Studio Seven next month called Shakin' Michael J. Really? I get the whole cheeky-celebrity-reference thing -- really, I do -- but in a world full of Tara Reids and Spencer Pratts, why are we picking on Michael J. Fox? Dude's got a legitimately debilitating disease that cut his career short and now spends his time heading the largest private funder for Parkinson's research in the country. Plus, Marty McFly.
Come on, guys. Let's class it up a little.
[Side note: Shakin' Michael J's MySpace page lists their influences as "shitting, eating, fucking, drinking, smoking, hating." Maybe classy's asking too much].
