Concert announement: Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine

First it was Keith Morris and the Flag boys.

Now it’s Jello Biafra. Be still my 16-year-old-punk-rock heart.

Strummer’s just announced a Nov. 1 date for Biafra’s new project, Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine. Tickets are $14 and on sale now.

Biafra, of course, was the outspoken front-man for the seminal San Francisco punk-rock band Dead Kennedys. After the group disbanded in 1986, Biafra continued to make music collaborating with the likes of Al Jourgensen (of Ministry), D.O.A., Nomeansno and the Melvins.

He’s also a spoken-word artists and political activist. In 1979, he campaigned to be mayor of San Francisco. In 2000, he sought the Green Party’s Presidential (he lost to Ralph Nader).

Jello Biafra and the Guantanamo School of Medicine released its second full-length album, “White People And The Damage Done,” in April on Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles record label.

Check out videos from the band, and an old-school Dead Kennedys song on the jump.
