Tonight one of the legit, DIY godfathers of punk bass, Mike Watt of Minutemen fame, returns with his Missingmen trio to Richmond Music Hall downtown.

A native of Portsmouth, Va. Watt is more often associated with San Pedro, Ca. where he moved at a young age. A hard-playing road man, this reportedly is his 67th tour lasting more than one month.

Recent setlists have featured covers from the likes of Roky Erickson, Blue Oyster Cult, and The Pop Group, in addition to the occasional Minutemen classic and Watt's solo material. New drummer Nick Aguilar is young and looks pretty great in YouTube clips.

Also on the bill, Richmond's own Piranha Rama and J. Clyde Morris.

The Monday night, Oct. 14 show starts at 8:30 p.m. and tickets are $20 bones.
