Event: 'John Spencer Blues Explosion - Brooklyn, NY'Print
  Music
Date: Friday, April 16, 2010 - 8:00 pm

The venerable, fiery, deafening, NY-centric Jon Spencer Blues Explosion will be performing in Brooklyn on April 16 at The Brooklyn Bowl. Aside from being the band’s first show of 2010, the evening will certainly be a glimpse of the band’s high profile summer shows in support of their best-of album Dirty Shirt Rock n’ Roll and their upcoming reissues – the seminal Now I Got Worry and Controversial Negro.
The Blues Explosion have spent their entire career building and destroying punk rock and blues while churning out crazy baby-making music. “With no regard for the previous generation's interpretation of the blues -- Spencer is a living affront to Eric Clapton -- the Blues Explosion take everything tasteless and dangerous and ugly and irredeemable in rock and run with it,”said Pitchfork recently.
8pm, $12 at the Brooklyn Bowl in Williamsburg.
