Saw Jon Spencer and the Blues Explosion supporting Beck at the Powerstation back around '96 I think it was. Spencer played a raucous set but gave me one of my favourite all time live gig moments when he came out later on to join Beck.
It all got a little out of control and Spencer ended up being attacked by the bouncers on the mezzanine floor after he climbed up the speaker stack and was mistaken for a fan gone rogue.
If he's half as energetic as at that gig, you'll be in for a good night out.
Didn't the msm recently run wall-to-wall coverage when Steve Jobs tragically succumbed to his cancer?
Houston died at 48 and Jobs at 56. Way too young. Perhaps this is what creates the huge interest which in turn drives the coverage.
