Join the Jesus Lizard and Akashic Books to celebrate the release of The Jesus Lizard book at WORD on Wednesday, March 26 at 7pm. Widely considered one of the most influential indie rock bands from the 1990s, the Jesus Lizard is remembered for their epic live shows; David Yow was renowned for ending up on the heads of his audience, sometimes with limited clothing garments left on his wiry frame. Their albums have repeatedly appeared on lists of the best albums of the ’90s. The Jesus Lizard Book is a stylish, three-pound coffee-table masterpiece presenting and exploring this legendary indie group. To celebrate the publication of the book, three of the four band members—David Yow, David Wm. Sims, and Mac McNeilly—will appear together for the first time since 2009! And, of course, there will be beer lovingly provided by Brooklyn Brewery. No tickets necessary, just show up at WORD.
