Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons at the Visulite Theatre tonight (5/30/2012)

Posted By on Wed, May 30, 2012 at 9:00 AM

JERRY JOSEPH & THE JACKMORMONS Overcoming drug abuse, self-destruction and squandered talent, Jerry Joseph has emerged as a road-ravaged populist and poet. Insanely prolific, he's collaborated with Vic Chesnutt, Dinosaur Jr.'s J. Mascis and Widespread Panic, singing of sex, disaster and redemption. Powerhouse trio the Jackmormons are equal to anything Joseph brings, be it no-frills ballads, bloodshot country or ragged rockers. A tough-but-compassionate lefty like Springsteen and Strummer, Joseph is still more likely to kick Tea Party ass, rather than open a feel-good dialog. Waxing primal, plain-spoken and pissed off, Jerry Joseph's closest kin may be The Grapes of Wrath's fallen but still fiery preacher Jim Casey: "I got a lot of sinful idears - but they seem kinda sensible." $10. Visulite Theatre.
