«Jail Weddings is known just as well for being almost ludicrously large. Nine people seems more like a reality show cast than a band, and in a gang that big you might expect at least a couple members to be unwitting pawns in what's really a vehicle for a singer or guitarist with arena-sized dreams. But nope – every single person on stage that night, difficult though it was to move up there, owned their instrument. The energy in the room transformed around 11:30, when morose-looking lead singer Gabriel Hart took the mic and suddenly flung himself into a whirling, flailing frenzy on the floor in front of the stage, and did not once stop for the rest of the set. By this time, the crowd had expanded to an even thirty and the dog had disappeared, and JW played to that 30 as if it were Wembley. Hart, backed by the crowded stage of backup singers, guitars, a keyboard, drums and the unlucky violinist who was relegated to the alley between the stage and the wall, got down on the floor with the increasingly enthusiastic crowd, at times doubling over onto his mic to drive home his wailing choruses and flinging himself into frame when a camera was present.» — THE BAY BRIDGED
We are honored to be playing this night as one of Death Hymn #9's last shows before uncertainty of geographical distance befalls them! Opening the show is the essential mutant punk of Die Group, so of course get there early!
