Monday To-Do: Green Jelly



9 p.m., Juanita's, $5 adv., $8 d.o.s.

When Green Jelly formed in 1981, their intent was to form “the world's worst band.” In that regard, they've come just short of the mark thanks to a certain Canadian outfit whose ineptitude is so renowned that you know exactly who I'm talking about. Regardless, if the band was shooting for the sewer, they certainly landed firmly in the toilet. Like Primus without the talent or GWAR without sinister creativity, Green Jelly flaunts their ineptitude in songs like “Misadventures of Shitman,” the video of which shows a janitor eating, drowning in and, eventually transforming into poop. And, somehow, it's awesome. Just like their live shows. They'll have puppets, big, stupid papier-mache masks and the audience shaking it on stage. With Showcase winner Brother Andy & His Big Damn Mouth on opening act duty, this bill promises to be a wild night.
