Posted in music | pictures on September 8, 2005

Jandek played an early and late show (different sets) at Issue Project Room last night (Sept 7, 2005) in Brooklyn, NY. They were two shows added last minute in addition to the one he played at Anthology Film Archive one day earlier. The three shows were part of a RARE six show tour from the mysterious guy who hardly ever plays, but has over 40 albums. I was at the early show.

Jandek @ Issue Project Room

I wanted to hate the show . The venue was absolutely stunning, the man is mythical, and he makes beautiful music, but I wanted to hate it because the doors weren't open at 7:00 as advertised (imagine a large crowd of music nerds standing on the side of the road near the gowanus canal in the middle of nowhere brooklyn). The show started late (some of us had places to be). You couldn't bring drinks in the performance area. The silo-shaped room (with a huge pole in the middle and more poles by the stage) was horrible (only those lucky enough to get a seat on the floor up front actually had a full view of Jandek and his band). We were threatened in a Scottish (Scottish, right?) accent with ejection from the barn if we were caught taking pictures or recording. We were told (in a nice way?) that the only reason Jandek was doing the extra 2 NYC shows, was because the New Orleans ones were cancelled. In other words we were to be thankful a city was wiped away because, "we sure as hell wouldn't of played extra shows for you just because the first NYC show sold out in one second" (not an actual quote). AND why couldn't they have played extra NYC shows AND the New Orleans shows? (note: I know I'm a spoiled New Yorker) My cynical mind decided it had something to do with a pretentious six-show concept that was related to the professional video cameras recording the whole event.

Jandek @ Issue Project Room

Well...I LOVED IT. By the time Jandek and band were halfway through their first song, not only did I forget all that was negative, I was completely entranced. I stayed that way for the rest of his 90 minute set. I didn't need a good seat because the show was best when I closed my eyes. The acoustics in the silo room were awesome (my unprofessional opinion). The lack of flashes and cameras in the quiet, cozy setting was a good thing too (yes, I obviously managed to sneak a few shots). And the lack of flashes will be even better on the DVD that I guess we can look forward to.

Jandek @ Issue Project Room

* There's a documentary about Jandek.
* Pitchfork reviewed the show in Texas a few days earlier.
* Heart on a Stick was also at this show.
* Amy was at the Anthology Film Archive show
* Adam was at the Film show too.
* Annabean was there too.

"we sure as hell wouldn't of played extra shows for you just because the first NYC show sold out in one second"

BV - is that an actual quote??? I would have wanted to hate it too.

Posted by Max Power | September 8, 2005 12:15 PM

It's not an actual quote. It's what I heard them saying. I'll try and clear it up.

Posted by brooklynvegan | September 8, 2005 12:17 PM

really what they said was something like "Thank you Issue Project Room for allowing us to do this on such short notice. The reason we're doing these extra NYC shows is because the New Orleans ones were cancelled, so we can consider these shows a tribute to New Oreleans" (something like that)

Posted by brooklynvegan | September 8, 2005 12:18 PM

Oh, come now: The host was very gracious, and the ban on photos/recording understandable given the whole aura of the guy; I'm actually a bit disappointed to find pics here (though the concert was being videotaped, and I did ask the official Corwood-stamped photographer to e-mail me pics (she declined)).

The host said that the shows were last-minute replacements for the New Orleans show and thanked the Project Room for making the show possible at such short notice, and thanked us all for being so interested that it sold out.

Perfect atmosphere for this. Will write more, later, when my head unclogs itself.

Posted by J | September 8, 2005 12:34 PM

The ban on photos and recordings was 100% understandable and a good thing...I update post to make that clearer too.

Posted by brooklynvegan | September 8, 2005 12:41 PM

Sounded like a fascinating show BV. I've often bicycled across the Carrol St. bridge and wondered about that "silo". Now I know - alas, just a bit too late.

Posted by drewo | September 8, 2005 12:51 PM

Sort of the same thing happened at Anthology. We were told 7PM sharp, and weren't let into the venue until 8 or so. Dark, quiet, no photography. Amazing performance. Not knowing what to expect, of course I was surprised, but i would have liked to see him play guitar. You're right about closing your eyes though, I did that for the majority of the almost two hour set. Great, once in a lifetime opportunity. Nice photos, too, sneaky.

Posted by Kevin | September 8, 2005 2:56 PM

You forgot to mention that he entered/left the room through a trap door in the floor. How crazy was that. Totally added to the mystique. Sounds like his guitarist quit 2/3rds through the Film show. Anyone know what happened there?

Posted by Ando | September 8, 2005 6:53 PM

Ace photos, but it wpuld be nicer if they weren't outta focus! Jandek looks like a pretty interesting looking guy, and has built an interesting persona for himself. He's like the Residents for the lo-fi indie set.

Me thinks a really hoity-toity docco about the man and his art, with him freely talking about it, is in the cards. Like I'm talking Art-Forum magazine type stuff.

they requested no photographs. respect the artist next time.

The period during which a developing fetus is carried within the uterus. In humans, pregnancy
averages 266 days (38 weeks) from conception to childbirth. Traditionally, pregnancy duration
is counted from the woman's last menstrual period, which adds roughly 2 weeks to gestational
age. This is how physicians arrive at a pregnancy length of 40 weeks (280 days).
