That headline up there ^^^ does not lie — The Jesus Lizard are coming.
The celebrated Austin/Chicago noise rock band have announced eight live dates for later this year, including a September 7 date at Royale in Boston. Tickets for the Boston date, as well as the other seven shows, go on sale this Friday (April 20) at 10 a.m. local time.
Here’s word: “Following an instantly sold-out handful of US shows this past winter, the Jesus Lizard have confirmed eight more dates. Kicking off September 6 at Washington, DC’s Black Cat the itinerary also takes the legendary band to Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit, Austin, Atlanta, Seattle and Portland. Prior to this past December, the band had not played live together since 2009 and these new shows represent the only new appearances planned.”
We have no reason to doubt that last claim, there, so get your David Yow on at Royale and these other venues across our wonderful country.
