Jon Spencer: Talking Freedom Tower & Debunking Myths

Drill: Chicago The Drill Festival  is a three day multi-venue festival that is  one built on artistic kinship across divergent musical styles, influences, and generations. Post-punk legends WIRE,  nearly forty years into its existence, have curated a festival that takes place annually. Drill takes place in two locations, the constant being London. The second location is an alternating location in the U.S. 2015 saw the festival migrate to Chicago. Again, 2015\’s incarnation of the  festival was the epitome of WIRE\’S  mission statement by bringing to Chicago the likes of The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, White Lung, Tim Hecker ,Disappears, Ken Vandermark and Nate Wooley, Olivia Block. Other than WIRE headlining thru final date of the festival the highlight was Indie darling, St. Vincent along with The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion joined WIRE to perform a recomposed,  once in a lifetime  version of the iconic WIRE song “DRILL”.
