Tom Murphy The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion at the Bluebird Theater.
JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION @ BLUEBIRD THEATER | 6/15/13
Saving one of the most blistering numbers of the show for the end of the set, Jon Spencer and the Blues Explosion cut loose with "Blues X Man." Making his way to the front of the stage amid a squall of sculpted feedback, Spencer offered up a volley of burning asphalt guitar leads, clearly aware that he was playing to a crowd that loved his brand of primitivism. Spencer and the rest of the band -- Judah Bauer and Russell Simins -- never skimped on the energy during the set. By the end of the show, Spencer was dripping with sweat.
