NYC's Jon Spencer is a veteran of the alternative music world, best-known as the lead singer and rhythm guitarist for The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, in addition to playing a key role in Pussy Galore and Boss Hog. Hot on the heels of his killer new album, Freedom Tower: No Wave Dance Party, Spencer's Midnight In A Perfect World mix storms through a fun, party-starting blend of blues, funk, rock, and punk that spotlights retro classics and hidden gems that are all wonderfully rough around the edges.
