Pere Ubu will play classic songs from their essential output from 1975 to 1982 at Lee’s Palace June 16.

David Thomas brings his legendary Cleveland avant-garage band Pere Ubu for a sizzling set at Lee’s Palace, Thursday, June 16 as part of NXNE’s Club Land shows. Tickets are on sale now.

They’re calling it the North American Coed Jail Tour and the band promises to play tunes exclusively from their influential and essential 1975 to 1982 recordings. Pere Ubu is releasing two box sets of music from that era. Thomas said in 1975 that Pere Ubu would be “the Crosby, Stills and Nash of the Cleveland Underground” and he’s managed to stay as confounding and compelling ever since.
