WNnG – Musings from the desk of chaz.

Don’t forget.

JANDEK is coming to Chapel Hill. Gerrard Hall. Sunday night.

Accompanying him are locals Anne Gomez (CGJ, America’s Next Top Models, etc.) on bass and John Darnielle (Mountain Goats, himself) on keys with Brian Jones (Agents of Good Roots) on drums. Jandek has been recording his music under a shroud of mystery for the last thirty years. Recording and layering his music by himself and releasing it, again by himself, to the masses first through LPs and now through CD. We can be hopeful that he returns full time to vinyl.

Grayson’s article (a discussion about Jandek with John) – here.
Wikipedia article – here.

What’s the total number of performances he’s done? It’s somewhere in the ballpark of 40. Over thirty years. The numbers show it’s not something to miss.

You can grab presale tickets here if you live in Durham and you need them. I think they’re just 20 bucks, I’m too lazy to open the drawer and double check.
