Last Night, Rocker Stalker said…: Jump Into the Gospel at The Studio 10/13

Posted: October 18, 2010 in Uncategorized

The other night, my friend and fellow music enthusiast, Lily, who is super  legit around NYC  and a publicist for some pretty awesome bands, invited me to see her latest catch, Jump Into the Gospel. Because we both like “bands that don’t suck,” I immediately took a listen and indeed, JITG was one of those non-sucky up and coming bands.

Arriving at The Studio at Webster Hall Wednesday night,  I was faced with the unfortunate but typical situation of a not so pleasant accompanying band, Dear Comrade.

Dear, Dear Comrade, please tell me you have day jobs? Or, at least have other projects going? Sorry.

Jump Into the Gospel finally took the stage, and the first thing that hit me was how amazing their hair was, especially lead vocalist, Louis Epstein’s  that was a cross between the ‘dos of  Robert Smith, Edward Scissorhands, and a “skater chick” (We discussed what we requested from our hairstylists when at the salon… and when I told him, “You guys are like a whole new type of hair band!” he laughed, saying he had “grown up listening to Poison, so I guess it makes sense!”)  Besides the eye-catching first impression, and most importantly, JITG’s music was the best of the night. Fun, quirky, and energetic electro/synth-pop, JITG is a band you should keep your ear on.  You can check out more about the gig on The Deli! They’ll be back around NYC soon, playing Pianos on November 5.
