JANDEK STUDY GROUP III: NOT THE IMAX EXPERIENCE


JANDEK STUDY GROUP III
Saturday, July 28th @ 9:00pm
Wiecking 220 Auditorium
Minnesota State University, Mankato

The Album:  Glasgow Sunday 2005

The last JSG meeting was a scorcher, because of the heat AND the amazing music.  Thanks to everybody that attended.  This next meeting will be a little different.  It's going to be our first indoor experience, and it should be ideal for the album we have planned.

Jandek started playing live shows in 2004, and a listen to every released show provides a unique and unexpected experience.  This is a trend that continues through his recent live career, and just recently he played a PUNK SHOW.  Yeah.  No Youtube clips yet, but we're dying to see what the show was like.  CLICK HERE IF YOU WANT TO READ A REVIEW!  It sounds like it was pretty kick ass.

We will be listening to Glasgow Sunday 2005 on Saturday, July 28th at 9:00pm in  Wiecking 220 Auditorium.  That's the usual Grind-Fu auditorium, for those of you that attend our film series.  We felt it would be appropriate to have our first live album listening in an actual theater.  This is a pretty haunting album, and the darkened room should be a perfect fit for the tone.  It compares to the track A Dream from the Lou Reed/John Cale album Songs For Drella.



This should be a pretty great listening experience.  Don't sweat it if you haven't attended yet.  The group is pretty informal, and it's just an excuse to hang out and listen to Jandek.  If you are a curious person, this is the group for you.  If you have any questions, drop an e-mail to shufflefunction@hotmail.com, or leave a comment on Facebook for us.

See you there!
