Check out the 5th annual Quiet Music Festival this weekend at Disjecta! Hosted by our buddy Chris Johanson and featuring lots of rad music of the less blistering sort. Saturday is going to be HOT so come enjoy some AC and listen to Steve, Mike and Jo play a set of Jicks rarities, b-sides + psych and/or (quiet) punk covers. Summer is on!!!
Ahhhh Summer! Blistering bright greetings to you all. Stay hydrated and use a strong high SPF then clean off the lenses of your Vuarnet’s and peep these new East Coast Dates!

We are excited to be playing this great show at the Oregon Coast for the release of the new collaboration between Tape-Op Magazine and Fort George Brewery. Check out this line up! Come party with us at the coast Saturday April 25th!
Just when you thought we were done Wigging Out, the Wigging Out continues! We’re so happy to announce that we’ll be returning to Australia early next year for what are sure to be a rambunctious and raucous bunch of shows. Check out the ‘tour’ page for details, dates, and ticket links.
Wig out across the World is coming to a close, which gives us a chance to look both backwards and forwards. Looking back to our March 5 show at the BottleTree in Birmingham, AL should be getting a lot easier soon. It was recorded by We Have Signal and will soon be streaming on their website and airing on Alabama Public Television. Stay tuned for details. Looking forward, about the only thing we have on our calendar is a Bartender Gig show with Spoon in L.A. on Sunday Oct 19. RSPVs are closed for this event, but audio/visual documentation may be forthcoming.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Mazes has had to cancel their appearances in Newcastle and Nottingham. Luckily for us all, Jack’s other band, Ultimate Painting has stepped in = we still have a great opening band, see you there!
Whew, finally. We are very excited to head back to Europe, the UK and SCANDINAVIA, geez, it’s been too long! We’ll be bringing some new jams, dusting off some deep cuts and even printing up a small batch of a classic Jicks T you might remember. Check out the tour page for updated dates, ticket links and band adds.
Portland, we’ll see you at the Crystal Ballroom in September, with GBV!

P.S. If you are in the Portland area this weekend (June 28) we will be playing a benefit for the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts at the OCAC. It will be a special night, we’re even dusting off Old Jerry for this one!
