In anticipating of tonight's Jesus Lizard performance at the Crystal, we've been hearing all sorts of tales from friends about previous shows from the legendary band. It seems that everyone has a Jesus Lizard story. While some of the tales are believable (the midget that was on David Yow's shoulders during a show), there are others that we are skeptical of (David Yow killed a bear with his bare hands while singing "Mouth Breather").
But of all the stories, this—from our sales guru, Rob Thompson—is easily our favorite:
I was at the show in Peoria that Rolling Stone wrote about. My friend Stan got naked and climbed on stage with the band. In their review, Rolling Stone called him a "pudgy adolescent."
Wow. See you at the show, I'll be the one reliving my (pudgy) adolescent years.
