The Jesus & Mary Chain 

When: Thu., Sept. 6, 8 p.m. 2012
Price: $27.50-$30
What’s left to be said about the Jesus and Mary Chain? The post-punk/rock ‘n’ roll vision of Glaswegian brothers Jim and William Reid are a legend — history’s psych rock middle children who came along after the Beach Boys, the Ronettes, Krautrock, and punk, and lit the torch that’s still be carried by the Captured Tracks shoegazer generation of the here and now. Sweet, slow-motion melodies wrapped in lacerating guitar tones defined the group’s dark allure, and through a succession of hauntingly catchy noise-pop masterpieces, including Psycho Candy, Darklands, Automatic, and Honey's Dead, the group sealed it’s fate as Scotland's greatest and most stylish musical export.
