Ultimate Painting in Nukes and Notts

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!

Tour Starts In One Week!

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!

Mazes, Sun Foot, Stefan Muller, Cavalry!

Hey! Which one of these excellent bands will be opening a Jicks show near you? Check the tour page to find out.

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!
