Holy $#@&!!: JANDEK to perform in Mankato!!

After months of planning and collaboration, we are so thrilled to finally announce that KMSU and the Minnesota State Performance Series will be presenting the first ever live performance in Minnesota by Jandek on Saturday, October 20th. Starting in 1978, Jandek has released a steady stream of recordings under the Corwood Industries imprint from a simple P.O. Box in Houston, Texas, with virtually no other information provided. The 2003 documentary Jandek On Corwood explored the music and myth surrounding Jandek and the following year saw the first live appearance in Glasgow, Scotland. Since then, Jandek has performed around the world with an assortment of locally and internationally known musicians that has included the likes of Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Mike Watt (Minutemen), John Darnielle (Mountain Goats), John McEntire (Tortoise), Loren Connors, Chris Corsano, and Richard Youngs. Jandek’s performances and catalog, now upwards of eighty titles, display a singular musical vocabulary while spanning a wide range of styles and approaches. In an age of social networking and over-exposure, Jandek remains as elusive and enigmatic as ever. In the end, all we have is the music.

This evening's performance will include a group of Mankato and Twin Cities-based musicians: Charles Gillett (Electric guitar), Craig B. Mataresse (Electric Bass), Adam Patterson (Drums, Percussion) and Brian DeGayner (Brass).

Advance tickets go on sale August 28th and can be purchased through the MSU Music Department - Concert and Event page. Tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door. Limited seating available. Keep posted here on the FFF blog or with our good friends at Shuffle Function.
