JSBX @ Bowery Electric, 2012 (more by Dana [distortion] Yavin)
We just posted about Speedy Ortiz being revealed as the "secret headliner" at Brooklyn Night Bazaar on February 7, and that's not the only new addition to its upcoming winter schedule. On February 15 they'll have the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion blowing things up. Pitchfork reports that Jon and the band are currently working on a new album and, for Record Store Day '14, will release a live cover/mashup of early Beastie Boys' gem "She's on It" with Link Wray's "Jack the Ripper" which they've been playing at shows for a while. The JSBX also have some West Coast dates in April and those are listed below.
In other Bazaar news, on February 22 Savoir Adore will be bringing their danceable pop to the party. Rest of those line-ups are still TBA and the shows, like all at BKNB, are free.
Also:Bernie Worrell is no longer playing on February 14. New headliner to be announced soon.
This weekend's Night Bazaar entertainment should be fun. Friday (1/24), Macaulay Culkin's novelty act Pizza Underground are amongst an otherwise cohesive bill of slick, '80s-leaning pop with French Horn Rebellion, Rush Midnight and Heavenly Beat. Then on Saturday (1/25) it's Har Mar Superstar plus Computer Magic, Not Blood Paint, and Static Jacks.
Of course in addition to the music, there is shopping, food (they just added Pok Pok as a vendor), beer and wine, neon mini golf, ping pong, old arcade games and more.
