Jon Spencer & The HITmakers – Bowery Ballroom, New York City, NY, US (29 December 2019)

Jon Spencer & The HITmakers set at Bowery Ballroom, New York, New York City, US with Yo La Tengo (headline), Rob Zabrecky and a DJ set by Jon Spencer on 29 December 2019.

“The surprise opener for night 8 was Jon Spencer and his non-Blues Explosion solo project, The HITmakers, whose lineup includes Sam Coomes (Quasi), Bob Bert (Sonic Youth) and M. Sord. They played a quick-n-dirty set accented by crunchy riffs, howls and yelps, with Bert literally banging on trash cans with hammers.”
