BLUES EXPLOSION TO KEEP GOING, WILL NOT STOP, ROCK’N’ROLL INTO 2013!

Wednesday, November 28th 2012

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.

TO ALL THOSE THAT ORDERED THE BLUES EXPLODER:
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 !

Says Jon Spencer: “Our hearts and prayers go out to everyone who was affected by the hurricane. The Blues Explosion has lived in downtown Manhattan for many years, and it means a lot to us to be among the first bands playing after the storm. We are gonna have a great night – Lets get together and and do it! But more importantly, as we’ve done for our concerts this week, JSBX will donate 25% of tickets and merch sales to the Red Cross and hurricane relief.”
