The Jim Jones Revue sideshows

“If rock ‘n’ roll was a religion then Jim Jones would be the equivalent of a reverend at a gospel church. Instead of spreading his message with a backing of gospel singers, Jim Jones preaches to his flock with the support of the Jim Jones Revue. His message to the people is simple. The good word of the lord is not the cure to your problems. It’s rock ‘n’roll.”

Yes, it’s safe to say we were mightily impressed with The Jim Jones Revue when they visited us for the Big Day Out tour earlier this year.

The hard-driving, microphone shredding powerhouse of vintage 50s punk and soul will return for sets a the Falls and Southbound festivals plus a trio of East Coast headline shows to announce the beginning of 2012 in fine style.

The Jim Jones Revue sideshows:

Monday 2nd January – East Brunswick Club. Melbourne
Tuesday 3rd January – The Zoo, Brisbane
Thursday 5th January – The Annandale, Sydney

Tickets on sale Tuesday 11th October

Highly recommend. I watched their BDO set standing next to Primal Scream, who were getting into it, too.

Count me IN for the EBC show.

$39.60 is a much more realistic price after the $70 debacle for The Corner in January.

I liked them at the BDO too. I wasn't next to primal scream though.

Would see them again for sure.

So upset to be missing this - Jim Jones ruled at BDO!

Yer I hadn't really listened to them before BDO and they blew me away. I was rotten drunk though not musically impaired. It was great shit. Would recommend to anyone here, they are a talented live band.
