JACK NAME ANNOUNCES WINTER 2014 TOUR IN SUPPORT OF LIGHT SHOW, OUT JANUARY 21ST

Los Angeles underground spectre, Jack Name, is releasing his rock and roll sci-fi novella, Light Show, on January 21st via Drag City imprint God? Records. Whiffs of young Brian Eno, Gary Numan, Chrome, ELO, Bruce Haack, Richard O’Brien (a la “Rocky Horror”) and Stefan Wul stain the sleeves of this story. It’s a chilling glimpse into an imaginary world torn apart by a war between rival gangs, the shadows, and the wooly bullies as teenage vandals and druid-like oracles lead the resistance against a juggernaut of psychological warlords. The sounds are a dense and ever-shifting beast and the narrative in this genre-bending explosion of sonic fiction holds as much significance as the sound.

 

Following this month’s overseas solo tour and performances as guitarist with White Fence, Jack Name and band will kick off a North American tour in late January.  And for this select run, each night’s performance will be a true representation of Light Show, a rarity for Jack who usually puts on a very different display in every city.
