(6:30 PM Doors)
SPACE, Evanston, IL
Ezra Furman started writing songs. Then he broke up with his longtime sweetie and formed a blistering rock and roll band called Ezra Furman & the Harpoons. They made albums: Banging Down the Doors (2007), Inside the Human Body (2008), Moon Face (2009), Mysterious Power (2011). And they played some really great shows. They even became popular overseas.
Then Ezra went solo. He holed up in the attic and made The Year of No Returning, released it in 2012. Right now he is one of the best songwriters around. He rocks, he connects, he haunts and he kills. He plays fantastic shows all over the place. He's one of our finest rocknroll fools, heart open wide and fangs bared. Keep your eyes peeled, ladies and gents, because he's far from finished.
