The Jesus Lizard
Pitchfork Music Festival’s Friday scheduling continues to be the high point of the annual weekend, and this last summer was no exception. Chicago fearsome foursome The Jesus Lizard triumphantly and ferociously reunited for its first show in a decade and has not missed a beat. David Yow, as biting, sarcastic and, at times, downright scary as ever, leapt into the crowd within the first minute of the set, as the rest of the band suckerpunched the crowd into submission. A fantastic, powerful show, a performance for the band to live up to during its upcoming two nights at Metro at the end of November, as well as at its New Years Eve engagement at the same venue.
