Veteran Jon Spencer rocked the Fairmount Theater tonight with its explosive blues punk combo, an American flag in the background, and heavy riffs on the tips of his fingers. Rockin’ like he just dont care, like he never aged, Jon Spencer is all sweat after a few songs, jumps around like a young punk. He’s the missing link between Iggy Pop and Joe Armstrong.

Joined by a blasé guitarist and a brutal drummer, Jon Spencer didn’t slow down for one single song all night. Full throttle. Full energy. Full explosion. And in true punk fashion, barely 2 seconds would separate each song! No rest, ever.

He got everybody to enjoy his high voltage punk blues rock, his manly rock, his Stones riffs. Yeah, the man knows how to rock!
