Jay Reatard Went to Junior High With Justin Timberlake


Fun fact: Jay Reatard went to a Memphis junior high with Justin Timberlake.

From up North:

They never got the chance to bond. “It was the kind of thing where you would pass someone in the hallway. Dude was basically in and out of regular school, anyway.” [Boston Phoenix]

Now enjoy these nifty pictures by Rebecca Smeyne from Mr. Reatard’s set last night at the Bowery Ballroom. And note that he’s also playing Europa tonight with Golden Error and the Octagon. Go and get punched in the face!
