Sonic Youth <3s Black Leather Jesus

Congratulations to Houston experimental/noise quintet Black Leather Jesus, who were hand-picked by Thurston Moore to open tomorrow night’s free Sonic Youth show at the Thunderbird Hotel in artsy West Texas hamlet Marfa. Founder Richard Ramirez, who started BLJ in 1989, also runs the label Deadline Recordings, also home to appealingly named bands like Werewolf Jerusalem, Priest in Shit, Anal Drill, Private Mouthpiece and Meat Shop Rapist. BLJ’s releases include A.N.T.I. and Sex in the Name of God. The show starts at 8 p.m., so if you leave right now you might still be able to make it. – Chris Gray
