[preview] Young Jesus // Pals // Gold and the Rush @ Café Prytania

first things first, we are extremely sorry about the absurd delay of the new site launch. we are dedicated to delivering the best possible result, and consequently, we have hit a few bumps in the road. But fear not! IT WILL BE UP THIS WEEKEND, WE PROMISE. fresh, original content coming your way asap! onto the show preview...

With roots in Chicago and New Orleans, Young Jesus is starting to turn a few heads. Their bold brand of reverby brood rock n roll delivers. Heartfelt lyrics, engaging song structure, and strong instrumentation characterize their music. There's a sense of urgency within Young Jesus that begs multiple listens. Influenced by The National, The Hold Steady, Titus Andronicus, and others. 

Stream their EP Young, Innocent, and Hairy below, and download it for free at www.whoisyoungjesus.com

New Orleans based indie beach folk. 

This is only Gold and the Rush's second show ever, but from hearing them, you'd never guess it. The four piece plays tight and rollicking alt-country. Pulling members from LA, Dallas, Memphis, and DC, G&TR takes a spectrum of experience and influence and constructs it into a well-oiled, dusty machine. Jake McGregor (formerly of Coyotes) fronts a talented band with a bright future.
