Rarely are two artists on the same bill from separate generations catering to the exact same audience. As proof of indie rock’s eternal appeal, 90s rock stalwarts, Speedy Ortiz, will open for Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks at The Neptune Theatre.
Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks are currently touring behind their latest album, Wig Out at Jagbags, a somewhat celebratory and experimental entry in their discography. With six albums under their belt, their set is sure to be varied, energetic, and radical. On the wake of Speedy Ortiz’s phenomenal debut album, Major Arcana, and recent Real Hair EP, the group centers around Sadie Dupuis’ malleable yowl and their knack for churning riffs. They’ve drawn many comparisons to Malkmus’ old band, Pavement, and their tour, much like time, is a flat circle.
