Ezra Furman

Ezra Furman appearing at this event

"A young man in a dress and vigorously applied make-up, singing about his Jewish faith, his depression, his anger and his joy, to a backing of 50s rock’n’roll, interspersed with bits of garage rock and Velvet Undergroundish R&B. Imagine Jonathan Richman’s even nerdier younger brother, from Chicago rather than Boston, and you’re partway there" - The Guardian From Chicago, Illinois, Ezra Furman showcases his Springsteen/Young/Dylan-esque sounds with a wry sense of humour and wild story telling. Crossing between love, gender, sexuality and religion, Ezra has soundtracked the current fear and loathing across America like no other, while pushing ahead with his own agenda.

The Irish Times on their now legendary show at 2012's Electric Picnic: 'Over the past two years, Le Galaxie have transformed themselves into a juggernaut of a party band, jack knifing into crowds who are only too happy to take the hit. Without question, one of the best sets of the weekend'.
