Brooklyn Steel, NY

Having formed way back in 1987 in Austin, TX – The Jesus Lizard exploded onto the scene and over the following decades delivered a series of punishing, industrial noise-rock albums whilst brutally carved their bloody place into music history.

Their music is a visceral blend of piercing guitar, machine-like drums, concussive bass and truly psychotic vocals, often reminiscent of The Birthday Party.  

Last night, to close out the decade, they made a very rare appearance at Brooklyn Steel, supported by Protomatyr.
