SHOTWELL: SF based street punk band's official/unofficial tour website
Needless to say, the L.A.P.D were having none of it. Instead, Shotwell played for an annoyed audience of cops on motorcycles at 8th and Figueroa. The cops eventually unplugged the band's generator and followed the guys around for over an hour until they left the jurisdiction. Jimmy was amused to find that they preemptively shut off public access to the La Brea tarpits just to prevent Shotwell from parking there and visiting...
On May 1st 2000, Shotwell played the SF May Day actions in front of Citibank which is documented at this link. Also last spring Jimmy took his cohorts to DC for the WTO protests. They also played some sporadic road shows including one at Chicago's Fireside Bowl on 04.19.00
In late 1999 Shotwell played a generator show at the WTO in Seattle .( Ed Note: I of course couldn't make it to any of these shindigs because I was either busy working here in the Mission's Multimedia Gulch for an evil global entertainment empire, or gambling away my capitalist pig dollars along the sunny Redneck Riviera...c'est la vie).
So in order for you to read on about Shotwell's ongoing exploits, and accounts of their famous street shows I suggest you get a hold of one of the extremely limited 12" records out now. The Shotwell / Miami split was released in April 2000, I believe it is almost sold out.
The record itself is a glorious split with the defunct band Miami and features songs recorded by various Shotwell line-ups over the last couple years. The thorough booklet put together by Miami's Iggy Scam and the gang is a worthy souvenir in itself even without the rocking tunes.
The vinyl was released by No Records, Paul Barger's tiny Berkeley
Based Label that recently dissolved after 4.5 years,
