Ezra Furman

While there's still a gap in his insane touring schedule towards the end of August, I think a GM appearance is highly unlikely.

So just highlighting the fact that there are numerous other opportunities to witness the greatness of Ezra and his band over the course of the year.

Get yourself to one of the below - there can be no excuses.

Got my ticket for The Fleece. Great venue to see him, and conveniently has a good pub next door too. I admire your dedication to see him three times on the one tour. I did manage to see him three times last year at least, once each time he came to the UK I think

I think it was a post of yours on here Wakestock that first alerted me to Ezra.

His Clwb appearance was my gig of the year last year, until his later London one became one of my all time greatest live music experiences - not a list I was expecting to be adding to at my age.

Take one percent of each of the 100 greatest musicians and performers of the past century and put it all together in one package - that's Ezra Furman. 

There's no-one else that i'd be planning to see three times on a tour and still be wondering if I could arrange to catch that last night in Notts.

 

 

Blimey ... must have been selling fast. That's the downside of him getting the recognition he deserves I suppose. He would have been great in the Fleece.

The Southampton gig was fantastic, despite Ezra and most of the Boyfriends suffering various ailments. The intimacy of the tiny venue certainly helped. 

 

Not very subtle with their clues, are they?

The Wytches would please my daughter ... and avoid my worrying about a clash with Richard Dawson, so I ain't too bothered. 

 

anyone hear ezra on woman's hour just now?

he was on talking about gender fluidity

but i think it may have been a bit of an early call for a musician...

poor old jenni murray had a hell of a time getting a coherent answer out of him

Just listened back now.

I'm not sure he should be putting himself forward for academic discourse on subjects that, by his own admission, he doesn't care very much about.

Stick to the music Ezra.
