The Notorious MSG are Playing Bowery Ballroom w/ Satanicide on Sept. 7th

The Notorious MSG open for Satanicide @ Bowery Ballroom on Sept. 7thThese guys are way too funny -- why am I not surprised that they are playing with Satanicide?

Here is the band's bio from their press kit:

Blasting out of the streets of Chinatown, THE NOTORIOUS MSG have arrived with a vengeance. Serving up deep-fried beats straight from the Chinese ghetto, they will not stop until they achieve complete musical destruction. This is the story of three renegade restaurant workers from the reputed streets of Chinatown, New York City. Pursuing their dreams of musical superstardom, Hong Kong Fever, Down-Lo Mein and The Hunan Bomb fled the harsh ghettos of Asia only to face more hardships as second-class citizens in America. They struggled to earn a living, toiling in the kitchens and risking their lives as Chinese restaurant delivery boys. Facing robberies and beatings on a daily basis, their fight for survival came to a head when an unknown assailant killed one of their original band members. This was the last straw; it was time to fight back. Rising up with a fury, the trio were reborn and The Notorious MSG exploded onto the NYC music scene with a new calling
This promo video should tell you everything that you need to know:

The band has been around for a couple years and below is part of a review from Asian Weekly of the band's first West Coast show.
The trio from New York City’s Chinatown poses as a group of restaurant workers who moonlight as musicians, gangsters and pimps. It may sound confusing, but it can also keep you doubled over laughing. Somehow the formula of wig-donning, gangsta-talking, wonton-cooking employees works. At least it does for MSG’s growing fan base of Asians and non-Asians alike.

MSG in the house, and we’re feelin’ really hot / Yeah, East Side Chinatown, bitch / You gonna die /Just comin’ out the ghetto with an egg roll / Got a .57 magnum feelin’ loco / And you know / I never go — solo / Got your homie funky Buddha and your boy d-lo
