The future is here now! 2013 and The Blues is still #1!

Hope everyone had a good holiday break. We here at BX HQ are getting ready to rock’n'roll our way down South, deep into the heart of Texas and back, Jan 14 – 26th (see SHOWS`).

But before we hit the road we gotta a date with Dave. The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion will be performing on the Late Night With David Letterman program this Friday Jan 11th, check your local listings!

Then we gotta help out our friends at the great WFMU. Get out to the Bell House in Brooklyn USA to catch a special early set by the BX Men at the FMU Mini-Record Fair and Blowout Benefit Show. Dot Wiggin of The Shaggs! The Relatives! Super DJ Jonathan Toubin! ( The station was hit hard by Sandy and needs your help. (If you bought a ticket for the JSBX Bowery Ballroom Nov 3rd show and couldn’t make it cos of Sandy, and have not gotten a refund, bring your unused ticket to the Bell House and get in free! But please make a donation to WFMU at the door.) Long live free form radio!

That’s right, tomorrow is the start of the JSBX EU Winter Spectacular! France, Germany, UK, Switzerland, CZ Republic, and Belgium will all bear witness to the SWEAT of the Blues Explosion. And that’s not the end! 2013 will see further dates throughout the world: USA in January, Europe again in February, and NZ-Australia in March. As always, please check the Shows section for all confirmed concert information.

A big thanks to all our friends on the West Coast and in Japan. We had a great time playing for you all!
Special thanks to Thee Quasi for all their musical gifts and good company.
Extra tip of the hat and a big kiss to the good folks at the JSBX show in Portland OR for spontaneously collecting money for Sandy relief.
Same goes for all the cool cats at the secret Shelter show with the great Guitar Wolf in Tokyo where a big chunk of change was raised to help those still struggling after the storm.

It has taken a lot longer than anticipated to source parts, road-test, and perfect this one-of-a-kind device. Sorry for the delay and thanks for your patience! Hold on a little longer, the light is at the end of the tunnel.

This has been a hell of a week!

Thank you to all our friends and fans for your support during this difficult time. With your help we were able to raise some good money for Red Cross Sandy relief. If you haven’t done so already, please think about donating some of your time and/or money to help those still in need.

Meanwhile, the show must go on! Blues Explosion soon to depart for the West Coast.
That’s right! The Blues is still #1 in San Diego, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Portland Oregon, Seattle, and Vancouver Canada!
For these shows we will be joined by all-time greats Quasi. Come out and get down!

Finally, if you live in the US of A: get out and vote, baby VOTE !
