WHO: ME FIRST AND THE GIMME GIMMES
WHAT: Punk’s premier cover artists, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes are a conglomerate of some of the most recognizable faces in new-school punk. Drawn together by a mutual love of ’60s and ’70s music, the Gimme Gimmes work exclusively as a cover band. Their repertoire includes songs from such acts as Neil Diamond, Billy Joel, and John Denver. The group produced its first full-length effort, Have a Ball, and two years later, Are a Drag arrived. This particular album was a hit at college radio thanks to the band’s quirky renditions of popular show tunes. Later, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes reworked bubblegum classics from the ’60s and ’70s for Blow in the Wind. Once more, the band was a hit on college radio, and pop kids started catching on to the Band’s infectious pop sound. The R&B-tailored album Take a Break was released, just in time for the band’s fifth appearance on the annual Vans Warped Tour. Continuing with the notion that no genre was safe from a Gimme Gimme makeover, Love Their Country appeared covering everyone from the Dixie Chicks to Johnny Cash to the Eagles. The Band released the Australian-themed Go Down UnderEP, and then followed it up with an EP of Japanese covers titled Sing in Japanese. Their eighth album, Are We Not Men? We Are Diva! was a collection of songs by pop’s greatest divas, fromMadonna to Cher and afterward released their first greatest-hits collection, Rake It In. This is a performance you won’t want to miss!
