Thanks, Lukas.

I really enjoy his live records, particularly the ones featuring piano, but I am also a fan of Jandek's earlier work. One of my friends is going to be playing drums for him in Denver later this year. I can't wait to finally meet him. No prob on the sound quality. This is a real treat.

Awesome. I would love to see him live.

Amazing what 2 and a half years does to the public reaction of seeing Jandek on BotB (see comments on the above post and the old one!)

SELLOUT! SELLOUT!

I still stand by my original position from about 25 years ago that Jandek's records make good desk blotters.

I went to this show. It was a fun experience - after every song literally twenty people would leave. The auditorium holds about 600, and it was relatively full when things started, so the crowd didn't get too thin (I'm guessing about half of the people there left before the end). Two hours of Jandek will wear almost anybody down. My girlfriend, having never heard him before, was really pissed that I took her. It was awesome.

I was there - flew in all the way from Denver (I didn't know about his upcoming appearance in Colorado)and Lukas was right - people were clearing the fuck out of there after the first few songs. The interplay between Jandek and the harpsichordist (sp?) was sublime, though. Two hours of live Jandek was just about right.

Then we started drinking.

Krys O -

Perhaps you are right, but if you think that Jandek is incapable of making beautiful, melodic pieces of (almost) conventional music, I highly recommend that you listen to "Glasgow Monday - The Cell," a live record from 2006.

It is at times moving, frustrating, exhilarating, and even a bit uplifting, in a morose, depressing, Jandek-y sort of way.

I was there and he gave us exactly how much Jandek that we needed. My girlfriend who had never heard Jandek before went with me and she loved it. She rules.

i wonder if anyone would give a fuck about jandek if he wasn't this mysterious cult figure

Mike Garrison

Those who weren't there have no idea what they missed, those who were but did not enjoy have no clue.

So - Denver guy: do you think this is worth paying twenty five bucks for? I'm in Denver and thinking about going but I like the rock stuff better. Who's this drummer playing, anyway? Is it going to be a rock show? Does anyone know?
I'll probably go anyway. I like these songs, and how many more shows is he gonna do? Especially in Denver!
