Jon Spencer Blues Explosion

w/ Shockwave Riderz (7PM, $18/$20, 21+)

It’s been twenty years since The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion first pressed ‘record’, and twenty years since Spencer and his A-Team of sonic terrorists tore up the indie-rock landscape with fever and a visceral, untouchable vision of rock’n'roll that did for a new wave of blues-punk. We are excited to welcome them back to the Club Congress once again!

OFF!

w/ Cerebral Balzy & Nasa Space Universe (6:30pm, $16/$18, All Ages)

After four decades of heavy use, does punk rock still have any life left in it? Do Keith Morris (of Black Flag) and his gang of grown-a$$ punk heroes still have the goods?
