April 9 [14:00 EST] -- Banyan, a side-project featuring allstar bassist Mike Watt, Porno for Pyros drummer Stephen Perkins, Geraldine Fibbers guitarist Nels Cline and Beastie Boys keyboardist Money Mark, is set to play the Roxy in Los Angeles April 16.
The band quietly made their debut last month at a lowkey afternoon show at the Checca in Hollywood. Sonic Youth's Thurston Moore was a special guest. Banyan has no plans to tour, however, or play shows outside of the Los Angeles area. Their self-titled album will be released on April 22 by Higher Octave Music.
