Author Amy Yates Wuelfing and Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers appeared on The Daily Show last night about Amy’s book No Slam Dancing, No Stage Diving, No Spikes: An Oral History of the Legendary City Gardens, which was about Trenton NJ’s imfamous City Gardens club. Jon Stewart had a personal history at that club since he was a bartender there and saw many punk & hardcore shows back then. Gibby and Jon Stewart quickly paid tribute to Gwar’s Dave Brockie as well.
Why is it they have extended interviews for boring politicians but for interesting people they only have a few minutes? I could have listened to Jon Stewart interview them for an hour.
Authors Wuelfing and Steven DiLodovico book about City Gardens was released on March 10th and I can’t wait to read the book. Besides the book, there’s also an upcoming documentary called Riot on the Dancefloor about the venue as well.
