Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Dex Romweber Duo, Shockwave Riderz 

When: Wed., Jan. 16, 9 p.m. 2013
Price: $15-17
Late last year, Jon Spencer Blues Explosion did what they hadn't done in eight years, at least on record: They exploded with the blues once again, releasing a 40-minute, 12-song blitz named Meat and Bone. Therein, the trio talked shit, acknowledged literary giants, ripped the harmonica and let the guitars of Spencer and Judah Bauer prowl and roar with, to be honest, much more finesse than in the early days. As reunion records go, Meat and Bone suggested that the band had simply hit pause years ago to let the ideas recharge into one sudden and splendid gush. If so, it worked; I'm strangely excited to witness Jon Spencer Blues Explosion in 2013 and, just maybe, beyond. Shockwave Riderz and Dex Romweber Duo open. —Grayson Currin
