ABOUT THE SHOW
After 11 years, your favorite glam-rock band is back. Combining a punk rock energy with an arena-rock theatricality you can’t help but raise your lighters (or smart phones) to, Lisa Jackson & Girl Friday are reuniting for two nights only at Ars Nova and they want YOU to be there to help celebrate their return to the stage. Lisa and the boys are back, and everything is A-OK.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS
Who is LISA JACKSON? Punk. Rock. Glam. Fearless. Lyrics which praise the bravery of those who dare to be different. A backing band pulsing with raw energy and intensely emotional musicianship. Lisa Jackson is an icon waiting to happen. Combining a punk rock energy with an arena-rock theatricality you can’t help but raise your lighters (or smartphones) to, Lisa Jackson & Girl Friday were one of the most buzzed about bands in New York City — playing to packed clubs all around town, headlining major outdoor festivals throughout the country, selling more CDS than they could produce and attracting the most diverse, loyal fan following a band could hope for. In Girl Friday, Lisa has found a backing band rivaled only by Elvis’ Attractions or Bowie’s Spiders From Mars. With STEVE LAVNER maniacally pounding on the keys with virtuoso mad scientist chops, JEFF GURNER laying down the heaviest of pockets on the bass and FREDDIE “BOOM BOOM” SANCHEZ delivering both slam and swagger behind the drums, Girl Friday lays the perfect foundation for Lisa’s Townshend-inspired guitar riffs and powerhouse vocal delivery. Turn it up and turn it out. Lisa and the boys are back. A-OK.
