DOWNLOAD: Cap'n Jazz - Oh Messy Life (MP3)

Cap'n Jazz

Jade Tree is thrilled to announce that one of our most influential and popular titles, Cap'n Jazz's seminal discography Analphabetapolothology, will be released on vinyl for the very first time on June 15th. A little over ten years have passed since the original CD release and we are proud to give the record the proper full featured vinyl issue that it deserves. As Cap'n Jazz has grown in popularity, so has the demand for the anthology on vinyl and we are more than happy to combine our efforts to put together a package well worth the wait...

There is more. As you may have heard, Cap'n Jazz played a short surprise set in January. Well, the show went so well that the band has decided to reunite again, starting at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago on July 17th with select dates soon to follow. This is a one time reunion and this summer will be your one chance to see the band live, so don't miss it. We'll see you there!

Video from that reunion show, which happened Friday, January 22nd as part of Joan of Arc's Don't Mind Control Variety Show at Chicago's Empty Bottle, is below. Time Out Chicago wrote of their four-song set: "Though the group's once-spastic youthful energy was slightly tempered with age, it was replaced with noticeably improved musicianship. Die-hard fans may have missed hallmarks of the group's heyday like Tim's trumpet honking, but the capacity audience didn't seem to mind the omission, opting instead to revel in the intense nostalgia of it all."

A track off the soon-to-be-on-vinyl Analphabetapolothology is above.Cap'n Jazz's next and only currently scheduled reunion show takes place July 17th at the Bottom Lounge in Chicago (same night and city as Pitchfork Music Fest). It's already sold out. Stay tuned for more dates to be announced including a show in NYC.

Joan of Arc, Tim Kinsella, put out Don't Mind Control on Polyvinyl in January. That album is "41+ members strong -- the Joan of Arc extended family comes together for 18 exclusive songs curated by Joan of Arc frontman Tim Kinsella. Joan of Arc Presents: Don't Mind Control features new songs by Tim Kinsella, Owen, Cale Parks, Vacations (ex-Chin Up Chin Up), Ghosts and Vodka (ex-Cap'n Jazz), Euphone, The Cairo Gang, and many more. All bands feature members who have played in Joan of Arc at one time or another."

Joan of Arc will be at SXSW for a show on Saturday, March 20th at Galaxy Room (formerly Radio Room).

Mike Kinsella also has upcoming shows as Owen; dates and videos are below...

nah...bowery or mercury lounge tops.

i was never a huge cap n jazz fan but i kinda miss the old jade tree bands coming around. i was a big promise ring and lifetime fan back in 96-97.

my guess would be bowery...i doubt, even on a reunion tour, they'd be big enough to fill terminal. maybe webster.

i wish more bands did the 3 nights at cakeshop route. i saw the clean at other music for free during that week but i thought it was a great choice.

there's no way this band is at webster or terminal. actually, music hall sounds like a great option considering their demographic.

I would prefer The Owls

they always played North Six so I wouldn't rule out Music Hall of Williamsburg.
But it could very well be Bowery, or Terminal 5 even, though that really wouldn't be fitting and definitely doesn't seem like Tim or any of the other guys' style.
I know one thing, I didn't expect this reunion and was pleasantly shocked when I saw the Empty Bottle video, and I'm most definitely going to whatever NYC show they're playing. Can't wait.

whats next, the promise ring?

^hopefully Owls

i actually heard promise ring were going to get back together. that's probably on the backburner now though, if it even was at all true.

Another promise ring show would be killer. One of my favorite shows was the promise ring/ weakerthans bill near the end of their career.

Your logic is flawed anon 10:13. Bands played Northsix as an alternative to Bowery Presents. It appears that Kinsella et al are not BP fans. That's probably why they always played non-bowery venues and are playing KF this time.

i was at highline and not williamsburg and the set list posted here seems to fit though I thought they only played 3 songs in the encore (definetely slush and take it in were two of them) though i could be wrong.

Some time before, I really needed to buy a good car for my organization but I didn't earn enough money and couldn't order something. Thank heaven my father adviced to get the loans from trustworthy bank. Thence, I acted so and used to be happy with my auto loan.
