Former Dead Milkmen Joe Jack Talcum returns to the Happy Dog, winging his way through a boppy set that won't disappoint faithful Deadheads, who still show up en masse for some of the happiest punk rock ever. "I usually don't use set lists, but I do at least 50-percent Dead Milkmen songs -- often more," says Talcum. "I do take requests, but there are a lot of songs I can't remember. I've performed both 'Bitchin' Camaro' and 'Stuart' in my acoustic sets in the past, but only with help from someone in the audience. Indeed, it is all acoustic solo. I don't have what you would call a tender style, though. It's usually a casual and fun vibe." It sure as heck is -- check out pics from the last gig at www.happydog58.com.
