Heavy Trash

at den Atelier Doors: 7:00 pm


On stage and in the studio, Jon Spencer, has destroyed and rebuilt American roots music with such ferocity and wild abandon it is hard to believe that there is anything left. His towering work with The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion remains an indelible totem to his enormous mojo spirit and red-hot power of deliverance. He is a Blues Exploder and Microphone Destroyer, with the stench of avant punk trash and nasty garage ooze and grind… Now, with his pal Matt Verta-Ray, he has become the Heavy Trash, and is inviting you to a Midnight Soul Serenade. Matt Verta-Ray grew up in the loving arms of left wing parents who would take him to folk and blues shows long before he sprouted sideburns. Matt is also the mad scientist behind the jungle of tube amps and old-school echo machines that form the mutated nucleus of his analog cave, world-class recording studio NY Hed, where musicians come from all over the galaxy to learn the dark secrets of the Midnight Soul Serenade.
