Jake LaBotz & Smokestack Lightnin’ (US)
16 maj @ 20:00 – 22:00
Jake La Botz’s rough and tumble Chicago upbringing led him to learn the blues from the last of the pre-war era bluesmen. From there, with guitar in tow, he made his way across the USA ’til he hit the end of the line in Hollywood where an improbable acting career began to unfold. After getting clean from heroin at thirty years old, La Botz became a Buddhist Meditation practitioner and teacher. He also took his bluesy guitar chops to a Black Baptist church in South Central L.A. where he steeped himself in gospel music.

Ever since then La Botz has been putting out his own brand of Gospel-noir Americana. The eccentric stories, characters, and underlying spiritual messages heard in his songs come to a head on his latest album Hair on Fire.
Beyond music and acting, La Botz is also a writer. A graphic memoir in collaboration with graphic novelist Nic Breutzman will soon be finished. La Botz’s short fiction can be found in several American literary magazines including The Inquisitive Eater, Metonymy Literary Journal, and The Museum of Americana. A book of short stories and a novella are in the works. La Botz’s most recent film, D.O.A., stars fellow musician John Doe from the band X.
