Jesus & Mary Chain announce two Boston shows, Sept 11 + 12 @ Paradise Rock Club

Back in March there was a redonkulous line outside the Belmont in Austin to see a reunited JESUS & MARY CHAIN at the Paste SXSW party. I was on it. I waited forever. I never got in. It seemed like no one did, except for New York surf-psych band and J+MC disciples the Vandelles, who tweeted a bunch of pics from the side-stage and made us all mad jelly.

But now that the Brothers Reid have wrapped up a few west coast dates and gotten familiar with the states, J+MC today announced a very-necessary East Coast swing, and it includes not one, but TWO dates here in Boston: September 11 + 12 at the Paradise Rock Club, an absolutely perfect venue for the noisy Scottish modern rock legends. Tickets are $29.50 and go on sale Friday at noon.

Must-read alt-rock legacy blog Slicing Up Eyeballs has the deets and full tour dates:

With the addition of the new concerts, the Mary Chain now has at least 18 concerts scheduled in the U.S. and Canada in August and September, although that figure includes a Washington, D.C., announced on the band’s website then taken down (although with some others that have since been confirmed). See full dates listed below.
