Speakeasy Featuring Jandek says
Lawndale Art Center is proud to present SPEAKEASY, a new program initiative that launched in Spring 2016. Our second event will take place on Friday, January 6, 2017 at 8 PM featuring a rare performance by Jandek. Doors open at 7:30 PM and admission is free.

Cold beverages generously provided by Saint Arnold Brewing Company.


Jandek is the musical project of Corwood Industries, a record label that operates out of Houston, TX. Since 1978, Jandek/Corwood Industries has independently released over 100 albums/DVDs of unusual, often emotionally dissolute folk, rock, and blues songs without ever granting an interview or providing any biographical information. Jandek often plays a highly idiosyncratic and frequently atonal form of folk, rock, classical, and blues music, at times using an open and unconventional chord structure. The name "Jandek" is most commonly used to refer specifically to the project.


SPEAKEASY is a new program initiative that re-envisions Lawndale's "Speakeasy" series that took place from 1992-2002. This series casts a reflexive eye on Lawndale's historical relationship to live music and performance, as well as the exploration of issues in contemporary art.
