Jandek sits in a broken chair, strumming a guitar he’s never tuned and singing about midnight telephone calls and wind. No one can hear him. No one can see him.
Bradford Cox smears sunscreen across his face and tells ghost stories to a group of kids wearing printed button-downs and fedoras.
On July 28, Jandek will leave his room and Bradford Cox will put on a hat, maybe a pair of sunglasses. According to Pitchfork, Cox will play guitar in Jandek’s backing band at an Athens, GA show held at the Orange Twin Conservation Community. Cox will play along with various Elephant 6 figures — John Fernandes of Olivia Tremor Control and Circulatory System on bass clarinet and violin, Eric Harris of Elf Power and Olivia Tremor Control on drums, and Heather McIntosh of The Instruments and Gnarls Barkley on cello. Check the details here.
Date (yup, just one):
