November 14 – On This Day!

1992: The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion – Bogart’s, Long Beach, CA, US
w/ Jesus Lizard and Dolomite

“The next night in Long Beach was pretty great, Sandra didn’t have to lay a finger on anybody. Now that I’m older, there is something to be said for Over-21 shows. Both of these shows featured a lot of new songs, which is cool; but I wanted to hear A Reverse Willie Horton in its entirety! I decided that Son of Sam was the best song that Jon’s ever done and I wondered when it would come out.” – Alright #2
