This past spring, prolific artist Jon Langford came to Cincinnati to open an exhibit of his visual artwork and perform a free concert with his group Skull Orchard at Over-the-Rhine club MOTR Pub. At the time, Langford spoke to CityBeat contributor Steve Rosen about his range of artistic endeavors. “I have to do a lot of things,” he said. “I find it essential, honestly — spiritually and economically.” Just prior to the springtime Cincy visit, Langford had come off a Midwest tour with Waco Brothers, the AltCountry outfit he records with for Bloodshot Records and perhaps his best known band outside of his first one — British Punk legends, The Mekons. Langford must’ve enjoyed his time in Cincinnati because this Friday (Nov. 2) he’ll bring the Wacos to MOTR Pub for a 10 p.m. show, one of only a trio of appearances currently scheduled for the group. The Brothers are bringing with them Paul Burch, the Nashville singer/songwriter with whom the band collaborated on this year’s Great Chicago Fire LP. The Chicago band Cannonball is also on the bill. Free. MOTR Pub, 1345 Main St., Over-the-Rhine. motrpub.com.
