Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion played Bowery Ballroom on Saturday night, November 3rd with Ava Luna and Bloodshot Bill, part of their tour that kicked off in mid-October and continues through middle November. It was a show that almost didn't happen due to damage from Sandy, but the lights came back on just in time and it was the first Bowery Ballroom show in a week to go on as planned. With that in mind, the band sent out this message:

"Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone who was affected by the hurricane. The Blues Explosion has lived in downtown Manhattan for many years, and it means a lot to us to be among the first bands playing after the storm. We are gonna have a great night - Lets get together and and do it! But more importantly, as we've done for our concerts this week, JSBX will donate 25% of tickets and merch sales to the Red Cross and hurricane relief."
A kind gesture from the reunited band, no doubt.

The show was the band's second NYC show in recent months. They also played a BV-Presented Record Release show at Bowery Electric in the month prior (pics).

I couldn't get into the city and had to eat two tickets. Sorry to have missed out on all the fun.

Same deal here - called Bowery to see what to do with my tickets, even give donate them to someone who could go- told me I was s.o.l. - greedy fucks - they probably re-sold them.
