I done kicked ’em out!”
Brother Wayne Kramer co-founded the MC5, which released their debut album, Kick Out the Jams, in 1969. With the 50th anniversary of Kick Out the Jams approaching, Wayne gathered some musicians to tour the music of the MC5, and the resulting MC50 supergroup performs at 9:30 Club on Tuesday, Sept. 11.
