the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion @ Pitchfork 7.17.10

When Pitchfork first announced Jon Spencer Blues Explosion would be playing their festival I was like “…huh?” Being of the younger persuasion, I missed out on the height of JSBE’s popularity and only had a loose knowledge of them. But a few seconds into their set, I completely understood why he’d been invited. Even people who weren’t that familiar with JSBE (like me) had to be at least a little bit impressed with Jon’s set. The guy is a wild man on stage and an even wilder man on the guitar.

  1. I feel old sometimes. Early Pussy Galore was great also. You might check them out in case you have no clue :)

  2. Once saw JSBX and Boss Hogg play a husband (Jon) and wife (Christina) show at a now defunct music venue. There could not have been more testosterone on stage and more mixing of s3xual endorphins in the crowd. A sweaty/raucous night was had by all.
