File under rock, mind-roasting
Hottest ticket in town? Perhaps. According to one guy who occasionally writes for us, the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion is the kind of band you should do everything up to and including getting naked and crawling over broken glass to see live because, well, they’re the plural version of a 12-letter word that starts with “mother,” which probably should not be uttered in polite company. This Saturday (September 21), Spencer hits town with the Liars (no, not the Lyres) and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, two other acts in the vanguard of rock music’s touted resurgence. The show starts at 8 p.m. at the Colonial Theatre, 3522 Stockton Blvd. Tix are $17.50 in advance and $20 on the day of the show. And kids? It’s an all-ages show.
