Clarence Reid, aka Blowfly, "the Original Dirty Rapper,” turned 76 on Valentine's Day and is celebrating his just-beyond-mid-septuagenarian status with rambunctious Tampa punk bands Abortion Twins and Eviscerated Zombie Tampon, as well as esteemed folk-punk laureate Crash Mitchell among others. [More after the jump.]

The favorite of comedy collectors is a raunchy rhyme trailblazer who combines the parody skills of "Weird Al" Yankovic, the outlandish getups and funk-griminess of George Clinton and the nasty hilarity of Redd Foxx. The Georgia native and current Miami dweller performed with Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers at a Los Angeles gig in the '90s, a show captured in The Twisted World of Blowfly documentary, and albums include Porno Freak and Blowfly for President. When asked how he got his name, he quotes his grandmother in a cackling voice: "I don't know why those little white girls like you! You ain't no better than a nasty ol' blowfly!"

Details: Blowfly 76th Birthday Bash with Abortion Twins, Eviscerated Zombie Tampon, Crash Mitchell, The Prople, Tom's Ragdoll & more surprises, Thurs., Feb. 19, Brass Mug, 1450 Skipper Road, Tampa, $10 (ages 21 & up)/$12 (ages 20 & under)

Some choice Blowfly cuts below...warning: most of it is NSFW quality, but definitely worth checking out for pure hilarity's sake.
