JEFF the Brotherhood
Thursday, March 31
Santos Party House
Last night at Santos, Nashville's JEFF the Brotherhood reunited with frequent New York (via New Jersey) bill-mates Screaming Females. In April 2009, the two bands put out a split seven-inch together and started to gain attention (and not just from Ted Leo's endless stumping). Since then, both have steadily spread the gospel of their live shows, JEFF especially--according to their agent's website, the band "clocked in over 230 shows in the past year"--and are about to spend a month on the road with the Greenhornes (a/k/a two-thirds of the Raconteurs). JEFF is also playing Death by Audio in Brooklyn this Saturday, with Heavy Cream, X-Ray Eyeballs and yet another new band with the word "beach" in its name.
