For the uninitiated, Me First and the Gimme Gimmes consist of Lagwagon frontman Joey Cape on
the guitar, Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters) on the other guitar, Lagwagon drummer and Fat Wreck
utility superhero Dave Raun on the skins, and are rounded out by Fat Wreck-head-honcho/NOFX
main-dude Fat Mike, and incomparable crooner Spike Slawson. Together, Me First and the Gimme
Gimmes — an outfit that has always operated more like a beer-hall Pussycat Dolls than a regular
mortal band—contain so much hot air, so much pomp, so much attitude, that it’s a wonder that
these guys can still manage to pull their five individual tour buses into the same parking lot, put
their differences aside and belt out the ballads without clawing each other’s eyes out. But they do,
for the love of the fans, the music, and of course, the applause.

So, what is really left to say about punk super-group and cover band extraordinaire Me First and
the Gimme Gimmes? After 7 studio albums, a live record and too many singles to count, they’ve
tackled just about every genre under the sun. Be it Motown, Country, show tunes, Japanese Pop
(sung in Japanese!), these seasoned punk rock pros have triumphed on every occasion in a way
only the Gimmes could. With such an extensive and wide ranging catalog, where does one begin?

Me First and the Gimme Gimmes will be on a worldwide tour in 2019 so be sure catch them live.
When duty calls for one of the Gimmes to perform with their other band, rest assured a traveling
Gimme will step in. Scott Shiflett, you guessed it, Chris Shiflett’s brother and guitarist for Face to
Face will be filling in and on occasion, Jay Bentley from Bad Religion will sub for Fat Mike. The
powerhouse continues and they’ll be singing ballads, showtunes, Country and Motown tunes all
year long, so don’t miss it!
