"Music's J.D. Salinger is apparently tired of seclusion. After three well-received concerts in Scotland and Britain the past two years, Jandek is ready to play his first stateside concerts. Tickets for the first date, scheduled for Austin, Texas on August 28th, are about to go on sale via the Jandek in Austin website. Details of the performance are hush hush, but the fact that each buyer is relegated to two tickets maximum seems to signal that promoters are expecting a swift sell-out. The Austin date will be followed by two early September performances in New Orleans and New York City." [Tiny Mix Tapes]

"Since recording Ready for the House in 1978, Jandek has performed a total of three concerts, the first in October 2004 and the remaining two in May of this year." [Pitchfork]
