Goldbrick: a Theatrical Exploration of the Music & Lyrics of Jon Langford opens today in Chicago!
Posted January 29th, 2009 in ROIR
We’re pretty psyched about this, especially since it’s named after ROIR’s very own Jon Langford record!

A Theatrical Exploration of the music & lyrics of Jon Langford
January 29 – March 1, 2009

The Building Stage
412 N. Carpenter, Chicago

GOLDBRICK Directed by Stephen Mazurek, Written by Loren Crawford, and starring Larry Yando.

Walk About Theater and Collaboraction are proud to present the world premiere of Goldbrick, the story of an unlikely Everyman’s attempt to live the American Dream as an immigrant in Chicago. A live band, two actors, and narrative video projections work to weave a fast-paced and darkly funny story of exploration and exploitation.

Featuring the music and lyrics of Welsh-born Chicagoan Jon Langford (of Mekons fame), Goldbrick presents the story of a remarkable flesh-and-blood-believable Everyman who must do all he can to survive, ultimately reaching crisis as he faces questions that haunt not only him, but all us, and that we as a nation can no longer afford to avoid.

Join James Chance and his longtime collaborator, Robert Aaron, are Original Contortions Jody Harris, Pat Place (also in Bush Tetras!) and Don Christensen in their first New York show in over a decade!

Saturday August 30th
6pm @ PS1 Warm Up
22-25 Jackson Ave @ 46th Ave
Long Island City, NY

Following the one time reunion of Teenage Jesus and the Jerks (of which James was a founding member) at the Knitting Factory earlier in June and in timing with this year’s 30th Anniversary of the seminal album NO NEW YORK (the band’s first recorded appearance) the charismatic band will perform its original classics as well as tracks being recorded for an upcoming new release. All of this comes hot on the heels of the resurgence of the No Wave movement with new books by Sonic Youth frontman Thurston Moore/Byron Coley and rock writer Marc Masters.

James Chance would like to dedicate this performance to guitarist Jerry Agony who died on July 29th.

Jerry performed with James White + Blacks and The Contortions from 1981 – 1997.

Thurston Moore/Byron Coley are performing a reading from their recent book, “No Wave: Post-Punk. Underground. New York 1975-1980.” at 192 Books on Sat 9/12 at 7pm!
