The Jesus Lizard Are Back

One of the greatest live bands ever, the Jesus Lizard have reunited to play some dates in 2009. (Seeing them at CBGB’s in ’92 was maybe the best show I’ve ever witnessed.) For the first time in a dozen years, you’ll be able to witness the incomparable original lineup of Duane Denison, David Wm. Sims, Mac McNeilly, and of course, David Yow. (Watch out for the hairy tangerine.) So far they’re penciled in for ATP in May and will have a “final appearance” in Chicago next November. In May, Touch & Go will also be reissuing (and remastering) the essential Head, Goat, and Liar. Get more info at ATP.
