More highlights from the Che Underground Rock-‘n’-Roll Weekend July 30 and 31, 2010, in San Diego: Che Underground supergroup the DaveFest Four performs the Dead Kennedys’ “Let’s Lynch the Landlord” and “Richie Dagger’s Crime” by the Germs.
“Dave Rinck came up with the idea to do an all-Dave set of our favorite punk anthems with a semi-acoustic roots sensibility,” writes Dave Fleminger.
“Joined by Dave Doyle, Dave Klowden, and Lou ‘Davian’ (stop counting, it’s still the Davefest Four!), we began our mission to reinterpret great songs that had made such an impact on us the first time around. It was tough to limit the set list to around 10 tunes.
“All rehearsals, other than the final one before the show, were in the backyard, disturbing the neighbors. Awesomeness…!!!”
The DaveFest Four includes San Diego musical veterans/Daves Rinck (guitar, vocals); Fleminger (guitar, vocals); Doyle (bass); and Klowden (drums) as well as Lou Damian on saxophone and harmonica.
