Jay Reatard

Details

With The Energy and American Sharks, 8 p.m. Tuesday, December 8, at Walter's on Washington, 4215 Washington, 713-862-2513 or www.pegstar.net.
After playing in every band on every label on every song in the Nashville music scene (a fuzzed-out execution showcased on 2008's Matador Records singles comp), 2009's Watch Me Fall acknowledges Jay Reatard's death wish with overblown, poppy drama in two-minute increments. Though recent documentary Waiting for Something worked hard to portray Reatard as an industrious genius who always wears the same Strapping Fieldhands T-shirt, they couldn't stop the Elvis comparisons. Fittingly, take this quote from a recent Village Voice interview: "Most of the time, what's wrong with you is more interesting than what's right. What's right with you is fucking boring."
