EXCLUSIVE: Seminal 90s Riot-Goth band Jack Off Jill Reunite For One Weekend Only!

We are beyond excited to announce that the amazing '90s riot-goth band, Jack Off Jill, will be reuniting this summer in Asheville, NC, for one weekend only! The band, which is known for its visceral, crazed live shows and incredible albums including “Clear Hearts, Grey Flowers,” is returning to the stage after fifteen long years of silence. “This is not only a reunion,” says Jack Off Jill singer Jessicka Addams, “but a way for us to gather some of our favorite people in one place to celebrate what was and what should have been.”
