Jay Reatard Plans U.S. Tour

Jay Reatard will be the first to admit that music is everything. “There’s really nothing else in the world that conjures up any sort of ambition in me,” he said in a 2008 interview with XLR8R. It makes sense, then, that his live shows are often as impassioned as his attitude, and fans of garage-punk that's confrontational like no other will get a chance to see him in action this summer.

He'll embark on a lengthy tour that kicks off in June and continues through mid-July. And since he's, like, the most prolific dude ever, he'll have plenty of songs to choose from for these shows
