Jesus & Mary Chain Chill At The Fox


Jesus & Mary Chain
The Fox Theater, Oakland

All photos by Raymond Ahner.

Known for their shoegazing, maybe the first band to be called shoegazer, Jesus & Mary Chain put on a dreamy but fuzzy show built on the back of their first album release in many years, Damage and Joy. As always, there wasn’t a big dramatic show, just the two brothers Jim and William Reid and the rest of the band with them presenting a drone-laden sound. While the new album provided many of the songs for the show, they did reach into the back catalog to remind everyone just how deep their material goes.
