"So, that was Jandek. But was it really Jandek?
The famously reclusive outsider folk musician performed his first ever
D.C. concert Saturday night at an overflowing Velvet Lounge, a mere 31
years after he recorded the first of his five dozen or so self-
released albums. (He started performing live in 2004.) For someone who
cultivated mystery for so long -- he didn't even appear in a
documentary about him -- it was downright bizarre to see him milling
around the dank U Street club. He looked pale, frail and wore a three-
piece suit and hat, like a character out of a '30s noir film. His
performance was anything but thin, though."
