The BrooklynVegan Show on Vans.com/Channel66 returns this Thursday (4/1) from 11 AM to 1 PM ET and this week's guest is Mikey Erg and his band, who will be performing a 25-minute live set and coming on the show to talk about the massively influential, always-thriving NJ punk scene that they've been part of for decades.
For the uninitiated, Mikey Erg has been one of the most prolific punk musicians of the past few decades. He made his breakthrough as drummer/lead vocalist of The Ergs!, whose 2004 debut album dorkrockcorkrod is one of the best pop punk albums of the 21st century and one that only gets better and more influential with age. Outside of The Ergs!, Mikey's drummed in zillions of bands, including Worriers, The Measure [sa], Early Riser, The Unlovables, Star Fucking Hipsters, The Slow Death, Dirt Bike Annie, House Boat, The Chris Gethard Show's house band, and more, and he's also been leading a solo career for the past few years. His latest album, which is self-titled, came out on Rad Girlfriend Records this past February. Previous albums were released on Don Giovanni.
