Dates have begun to trickle out for Blake Schwarzenbach's 2013 Mobile Disco Decathalon, a summer tour that will feature the former frontman of Jawbreaker and Jets To Brazil (and current leader of Brooklyn punk band forgetters, pictured above) onstage for a night of… well, we're not entirely sure. Here's what the official description is:
“The decathlon is a combined event in athletics consisting of ten track and field events. The word decathlon is of Greek origin, from δέκα (déka, meaning “ten”) and ἄθλος (áthlos, or ἄθλον, áthlon, meaning “feat”). Events are held over two consecutive days and the winners are determined by the combined performance in all.
Blake Schwarzenbach (Jawbreaker, Jets to Brazil, Forgetters) and his emerging alter egos, Chris Lager (DJ/Producer:Forgetters,O.C.D.,Chris Lager) and O.C.D. (Rapper/Compulsive:Original Guitar Dracula, Ole Crazy Disorder, Often Cutz Deep, etc.)are coming to your town soon! The show will feature Blake, Chris, and O.C.D. on a single stage, playing records, singing songs, spittin', mixing, and plain old storytelling. Expect some catalog. The event is modeled on the Greek “Decathlon,” renowned for its rigor and mixed martial artistry. Go mobile, Go Chris Go!”
