Jay Reatard hits the road hard


Headlines Reggie’s in Chicago, Opens for Black Keys, Heads to Australia, Takes over South By Southwest
Memphis punk/garage rock savant Jay Reatard will be opening dates for the Black Keys this spring, starting March 27 in Tuscon, AZ. and finishing up April 15 in Royal Oak, MI. All of this comes after shows in Australia and includes a headlining performance at Reggie’s in Chicago, and a slew of performances scheduled for SXSW.

There is no denying the wildly prolific skum scenic genius of Jay Reatard. With 18 full lengths under 8 different bands released since 1998, including The Reatards, The Lost Sounds, Angry Angles, and The Final Solutions, Matador Records will be releasing six Jay Reatard 7″ singles in 2008. Reissues from In The Red and and Goner to follow. Tour dates and link to download below.

Jay Reatard is one drug overdose or insane-asylum visit away from working himself into legend. Rampaging through 15 songs in less than 30 minutes, Visions is all killer, no filler, a modern lo-fi nugget as violent and urgent as it is enjoyable. Highly recommended.
