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

KEEP THE HOUSTON PRESS FREE... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
The Houston Press is a nationally award-winning, 32-year-old publication ruled by endless curiosity, a certain amount of irreverence, the desire to get to the truth and to point out the absurd as well as the glorious.
