Grampall Jookabox is hitting the road, and by hitting, we mean pulverizing. The two-drummer attack (yes, two drummers) will begin stateside and then threaten the cultural stability of Europe, or at least what is left of it. To launch the power-tour, Grampall Jookabox will be performing three nights in Chicago at Links Hall March 6-8. He’ll specifically be playing Treasure Hunt, an underground series of performances curated by Angeline Gragasin.
Speaking of underground – congratulations to U2 on their latest release. But did anyone notice that Pitchfork reviewed it with a 4.2, and then the album showed up for sale on Amazon for $4? Hate to tell you Bono, but we already tried that. The critics aren’t so fond of it – note results (which include Moose of Grampall in an appropriately timed stimulus dollar-bill costume) here.
