Review: Jello Biafra & the Guantanamo School of Medicine at Summit Music Hall, 12/31/13

JELLO BIAFRA & GUANTANAMO SCHOOL OF MEDICINE at SUMMIT | 12/31 As Jello Biafra strolled around the stage at the Summit, singing with real power and conviction while jumping around and gesturing dramatically, he displayed an almost superhuman level of energy and enthusiasm. A legend in his own right, Biafra delivered a show worthy of vintage era Dead Kennedys with his latest band, Guantanamo School of Medicine. Except for a couple of technical issues with the guitar rig, it was a powerful and inspirational performance beginning to end.
