Fat Wreck Chords 25th Anniversary shows in San Francisco (and elsewhere) already sound awesome…it just got more awesome! The punk label will have members of No Use for A Name play along with some special guests to fill in for the late Tony Sly. Fat Wreck Chords is calling it No Use and Friends. It’s probably the last time you’re going to be able to hear some NUFAN songs live so get your ass to San Francisco!
We at FAT have been so excited putting together our 25 year anniversary tour. It really is an epic year, and a stellar celebration… still, something is missing. It just doesn’t seem right for us to party without one of our founding FAT bands. We’ve managed to wrangle Propagandhi, Tilt, and Bracket, but we are left with a hole in our heart when it comes to No Use For a Name. FAT’s history is so closely intertwined with No Use For a Name, we knew we had to come up with some way to include them in our celebration.
Of course, no one can replace our dear departed friend Tony Sly, but why not gather NUFAN alumni, Matt Riddle, Rory Koff, Dave Nassie (and more) and invite an amazing cast of FAT band members to sing lead vocals? We’re calling it No Use and Friends, and it’s a way to celebrate all that No Use For a Name has meant and still does mean to our label. Let’s make sure that No Use knows how much we love them, and how important they are in FAT’s history. Check them out Sunday, August 23rd, in San Francisco… it’s probably your last chance.
