The Jesus Lizard – reissues & 2009 tour dates (2 NYC shows!)

The Jesus Lizard @ the primavera festival – May 2009 (Miss Rosa)
Jesus Lizard

“Touch & Go Records is going to reissue the Pure EP and the albums Head, Goat, Liar, and Down on September 22, 2009. These records have been remastered and sound noticeably better than the original releases. All of the albums will include songs from the 7′ singles and other rarities as bonus tracks.” [David Wm. Sims]

More Jesus Lizard dates have been confirmed, and as hoped, but expected, there are shows in NYC (2 of them!). Slightly unexpected is that those city shows will come over two months after the band make an appearance further upstate at the ATP festival (which is a month after they play a show for Pitchfork in Chicago).

The NYC shows are November 16th and 17th at Irving Plaza. Tickets for the first one go on sale Friday, June 19th, at noon. The second is isn’t listed at Live Nation yet. The Jesus Lizard are also playing the 9:30 Club in DC on November 19th. All dates and reissue track lists, below…
