Jon Langford, a founding member of British punk rock pioneers the Mekons, as well as Chicago band the Waco Brothers, is known for his paintings dealing with country music pioneers and their history. The work in Old Devils & Other New Paintings are more directly concerned with recent times, and concerned with aging, false promises and regrets. Jon Langford & The Far Forlorn will play a short set of music at the opening.
