Philadelphia’s beloved satirical punk-rock band, The Dead Milkmen, are performing in the most fitting of venues: Laurel Hill Cemetery. Formed in 1983, the band released their debut album Big Lizard in My Backyard in 1985 and made a name for themselves in the local underground punk scene. Their original lineup consisted of vocalist and keyboardist Rodney Linderman (“Rodney Anonymous”), guitarist and vocalist Joe Genaro (“Joe Jack Talcum”), bassist Dave Schulthise (“Dave Blood”) and drummer Dean Sabatino (“Dean Clean”). “Punk Rock Girl,” a single from their 1988 album entered MTV rotation and led the band to international success. Though the band broke up in 1995, they reunited in 2008 with Dan Stevens on bass. Since then, they’ve toured to great acclaim and released a number of limited-issue vinyl EPs. This fall, the band will return to the city of the dead for what promises to be an unforgettable show. Opening performances by Trash Knife and Sheena and Thee Nosebleeds will begin at 7:00 pm. Bring your own blankets, beach chairs and/or picnics.
The concert will take place on Friday, September 27 at 7:00 pm (with a prescheduled rain date of Saturday, September 28 at 7:00 pm). Gates open at 6:00 pm. Ticket holders can check in at Laurel Hill Cemetery’s Gatehouse entrance at 3822 Ridge Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19132.
