Jesse Malin

Highly Recommended
Live Show Pick of the Week

TT the Bears Fri, 2/25 - 9:00 pm
Tickets still available: Just $12



SHOW OF THE WEEK - This Friday night, Jesse Malin and The St. Marks Social will be performing The Fine Art of Self Destruction in its entirety for one last (very special) time at TT The Bears. This will be one of the firstchances most will have had to hear the album material played straight through. It will be the first and only time it has ever been done here in Boston. TFAOSD was the album that broke Jesse, the album's songs were produced by Ryan Adams and Malin has plumbed the record for his great live performances for years now.

Trust me. This is not one you are going to want to miss. Buy your tickets early. The opportunity may be gone by stage time.

Jesse Malin - Brooklyn
* Crowd sings w/ Jesse on this one at shows!

Jesse and The St. Marks Social played two sold out shows at NYC's City Winery this past Saturday, February 19th, performing Malin’s debut solo album, The Fine Art of Self Destruction, in its entirety for the first time ever. Always a true showman, Malin ended the late show with a surprise all-star encore jam featuring The St. Marks Social, as well as special guests Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Guns N Roses), who kicked off each show with a stellar set, singer-songwriter Charlie Mars, and Billie Joe Armstrong (Green Day). Armstrong's,who came down to the Winery after his performance as St. Jimmy in Broadway’s American Idiot, appearance was especially meaningful on this celebratory event, considering the long musical history shared Malin shares with him. D Generation and Green Day toured together on their excursion supporting the release of Nimrod, and Billie Joe’s label, Adeline Records, released Jesse’s Glitter in the Gutter and Mercury Retrograde.

Following a trip to SXSW, you can catch the boys in April when they head out on tour with Alejandro Escovedo.

that nyc show sounds pretty special. i remember seeing jesse at the bowery ballroom shortly after TFAOSD came out - must have been 2003 or so. Tommy Stinson opened, and Billie Joe Armstrong came out for a cover of What's So Funny (about Peace Love and Understanding) -- weird when history repeats itself
