Blake Schwarzenbach (Forgetters, ex-Jawbreaker) has announced a few solo shows. What exactly they will entail is entirely another story; check out a description of the events and a list of dates below.
The decathlon is a combined event in athletics consisting of ten track and field events. The word decathlon is of Greek origin, from δέκα (déka, meaning “ten”) and ἄθλος (áthlos, or ἄθλον, áthlon, meaning “feat”). Events are held over two consecutive days and the winners are determined by the combined performance in all.
Blake Schwarzenbach (Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil, Forgetters) and his emerging alter egos, Chris Lager (DJ/Producer:Forgetters,O.C.D.,Chris Lager) and O.C.D. (Rapper/Compulsive:Original Guitar Dracula, Ole Crazy Disorder, Often Cutz Deep, etc.)are coming to your town soon! The show will feature Blake, Chris, and O.C.D. on a single stage, playing records, singing songs, spittin’, mixing, and plain old storytelling. Expect some catalog. The event is modeled on the Greek “Decathlon,” renowned for its rigor and mixed martial artistry. Go mobile, Go Chris Go!
