Although Jon Spencer has been involved in a host of bands since the early ’80s, 2018 saw his first LP released under his own name. The album, Spencer Sings the Hits!, is packed with what makes Jon Spencer amazing — the garage punk, B-movie aesthetic, and rockabilly swagger he has perfected over 30 years of making music with bands like the DC-born Pussy Galore, Boss Hog, and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion.
Jon brought all of that and more to the Black Cat on Saturday.
The Black Cat may be shuttered throughout January, but it is opening for select shows, including a celebration of the 25th anniversary of emo rockers Mineral on Thursday, Jan. 17. You can win tickets to go with Parklife DC.

Post-punk supergroup Hammered Hulls made its debut performance at the Black Cat’s 25th anniversary concert showcase in September. The quartet returned to Black Cat recently for a mesmerizing sold-out show at the club’s backstage, and we took some pix!
