Electric Six Versus the Jesus Lizard

If Dick Valentine, vocalist of Electric Six, and David Yow of the Jesus Lizard were to be involved in a performance battle, Yow would probably win for voracity and venom, every bit won paid with sweat, while Valentine might suavely eek by with sheer cockiness. Whichever you prefer — insanely spastic rock fronted by an enigmatic rock legend, or a taboo dance party supplied by Detroit’s brashest new wave weirdos, this Tuesday night is the rare weekday evening where you can’t afford to be on the fence about your preferences. Word has it that the Jesus Lizard will be around for a very limited time, only, and with Yow on the recent mend with a show-induced injury, who knows how many wild spectacles he has left in him? Electric Six, although a spectacle of a different kind entirely, will provide a good alternative for those who relate to the phrase “fire in the disco” over “too bad about the fire”. Catch Yow uttering the word ‘disco’? That would definitely be a cold day in hell.

Electric Six plays at Mad Planet (533 E. Center) tonight along with Gay Blades and Millions of Brazilians. 10 p.m. 21+. The Jesus Lizard plays at Turner Hall Ballroom (1032 N. 4th) tonight with ifIHadAHiFi. 8 p.m. All-ages.
