Once again Madison brings in another artist from this summer’s Lollapalooza festival. Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks will be hitting the High Noon Saloon on October 30th with Blitzen Trapper.
Take a listen to some choice tracks:
Malkmus fronted one of my favorite bands (Pavement) 20 years ago and since then, has put out some of indie rocks best albums. His guitar work since breaking away from Pavement (1999) has only gotten more brilliant and creative upon each release. There is evidence of SM's best ax-wielding on Pig Lib (2003) one of my personal favorites.
We caught SM +Jicks last time they came though the state at the Pabst Theater on March 20th. This was not only a great performance but it was the first time I had seen SM. The show was incredible (everything I had expected), SM’s guitar work was immaculate and it was great to see ex-Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Wiess with the Jicks adding vocals and beat to the mix.
Here is listing of Malkmus’ work other than Pavement:
With Silver Jews
* Dime Map of the Reef (1992) 7"ep
* The Sabellion Rebellion & Old New York (1993) 7"
* The Arizona Record (1993) 12"
* Starlite Walker (1994)
* American Water (1998)
* Hot as Hell - Live 1993 (1999) CD/7" Single
* Tanglewood Numbers (appears on "The Farmer's Hotel") (2005)
With The Crust Brothers
* Marquee Mark (1998)
With The Jicks
* Stephen Malkmus (2001)
* Pig Lib (2003)
* Face the Truth (2005)*
* Real Emotional Trash (2008)
This has to be one of the hottest tickets to get this year. I am thinking it will sell out so get your tickets as soon as you can here.
