JACK NAME GIGS
This Jack Name record that has recently come out is really something. Awesome tunes, raw production, good lyrics, and (finally) - some honest-to-goodness authentic strangeness and personality.
There is so little contemporary guitar music liable to ignite real listening imagination and free associative thought these days. There's a quarter century past just jammed with that kind of music, but as most thoughtful rock n' rollers agree the torch of inventiveness was long ago passed on to new genres. Nevertheless, when the occasional nugget packed ripper floats on through the interwebs I am still liable to get excited (have you heard U.S. EZ?). Rock habits die hard.
All of which is to say that I am very stoked to play a couple shows with this Jack Name cat, and his fabulous Light Show. Taking time out from recording the next Twig masterpiece to commission a special new ST set.
MARCH 12 - The Garrison, Toronto w/ Jack Name
MARCH 13 - Casa Del Popolo, Montreal w/ Jack Name
I can't even find my favourite track on this record for stream on the net here, but even so DO HAVE A LISTEN.
