The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion have been around for more than twenty years now, creating a digable blend of rockabilly, blues punk and every branch of rock in between.  The group released their latest LP (their first in eight years) Meat + Bone last September and have been on a world tour ever since.

One stop on the recently-announced summer leg of said tour is The Chameleon Club in Lancaster on July 19th.  With such intense, electric and amplified music, this group is sure to put on a legendary show.  Below, you can watch the very bizarre video for their recent single, “Bag of Bones” and get tickets here.
