After an eight-year hiatus, the Jesus Lizard announced a tour to close out 2017. Last night, the band played the first date in Nashville, TN at the Cannery Ballroom, and fan-shot footage indicates that it was a wild time; David Yow crowd-surfed at one point. The band played “Puss,” “Then Comes Dudley,” “If You Had Lips,” and more; watch footage from the show and check out the setlist below.
