Jeff the Brotherhood, Santos 7/18/2012

Jeff The Brotherhood

What do you get when you put JEFF the Brotherhood in a tiny room and make the show free and all-ages? Wildness. It has been a while since I've seen the Nashville duo play a room as small as Santos' basement and it was the cheerfully out-of-control thunderstorm I was hoping to experience. Mind you I wasn't in the thick of it, but it is certainly fun to watch. The mayhem started with the first chord of the first song and rarely let up, though Jake and Jamin stopped the show after three songs when things got too crazy up front and tried to remove a set of steps up to the stage, but after a minute of failed wrangling with them, just told the crowd to "be nice."

The show was a BV-presented release party for JEFF's new album, Hypnotic Nights, which came out this week. The band played a good half of the album, plus most of the JEFF "oldies" you'd want like "Bone Jam," "Mellow Out" and ripper "Heavy Days." "We'll be back sometime soon," Jake told the sweaty crowd. "Like usual." When, exactly, they'll be back is still up in the air but all JEFF tour dates are listed below.

Openers were Fuck Ton which is basically a Death by Audio house band, with head DbA-ers Edan Wilber and Matt Conboy providing the rhythm section, with gutteral screams and vocals by Travis of Grooms and Jay Heiselmann of The Immaculates (plus Mark Kleeb on electronics). Pure noise but entertaining for their short set, plus it brought a little of Death By Audio (the place JEFF has played more than anywhere else in NYC) to the Lower East Side (well, actually Chinatown).

More pictures of both bands from the Santos show are below...

ginger kid has got to go

I see young GWB in the crowd!

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2012 3:00 PM

I hate this crowd a fuck ton.

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2012 3:04 PM

for real, that ginger dude was really annoying.

i really dont see the point of those stairs in front of the stage. it's just a bad idea. even though it's a 2ft stage they still need to put stairs all along the front? all it does is make people fall over each other when things start to get exciting.

Jamin tried to get the security to remove the stairs but for whatever reason they wouldn't. not sure if it was bolted down to something or they were just to fucking stubborn to do anything about it. but once they called attention to it people were more considerate, trying not to knock people over onto them

Posted by Anonymous | July 20, 2012 3:10 PM

The stairs were bolted or stuck to the floor somehow. I'm fine with that. I'll be considerate when there are stairs in the way.

But. I cannot fucking stand the people who sit on the stage in front of a moshpit and the dudes who try to protect of them and get pissed when people are slamming into them. big fuck you to those folks. otherwise fun show!

of all the crappy, talentless, vapid, three-chord fashion victim hipster bands to come out in the last five or so years, this has got to be the worst.

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 3:58 PM

that's why I prefer to listen to the iPods--a band that offers diversity from one track to the next!

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 5:11 PM

^and here comes the stupid followup jokes

1)I admit I laughed and thought it was funny

2)It is just an innocent joke, people should relax. Why get so worked up.

3)It think the joke is dumb but cute and other people seem to like it.

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 5:40 PM

5:40 - Yeah, it's pretty predictable at this point. Usually I find myself wondering how any idiot could possibly find this joke funny anymore. But I don't know, just something about the WAY it was posted this time was actually quite amusing. I'm not proud to admit it, but I laughed!

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 6:09 PM

^Clutching and grasping at straws lonely loser.

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 7:38 PM

hey, ease up, pal, it's just a harmless joke. nothing to get worked up about. go outside, get some fresh air.

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 7:43 PM

This is so embarrassing.......... but I did actually laugh at 5:11.

Hope that's ok.

Notice how 5:40/7:38 had nothing better to do than admonish the iPods joke guy.

"Clutching and grasping at straws lonely loser".

"..grasping at straws lonely loser".

"..lonely loser".

Lonely loser?

LONELY LOSER.

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 11:00 PM

Yeah, I mean I'm no fan of the joke personally, but other people seem to like it, so why spoil the fun? It's not hurting anyone. In fact it's kind of--well--kind of a cute joke, really.

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 11:23 PM

ipod guy is definitely out of his mind.

Posted by Anonymous | July 21, 2012 11:28 PM

^ Is that worse than "definitely in of his mind"?


Because that would be the opposite, right?

RIGHT?

Posted by Anonymous | July 22, 2012 5:15 AM

The opposite would be "indefinitely in of her non-mind." Although that's not completely accurate, since I don't know what the opposite of "of" is. Perhaps "of" is really more of a pivot-point in the phrase; thus the opposite becomes: "her non-mind of indefinitely in."

Posted by Anonymous | July 22, 2012 6:22 AM

5:11 that's pretty funny

Posted by Anonymous | July 22, 2012 10:20 AM

how much do you think their daddy paid to get them this cool show and big exposure?

Posted by Anonymous | July 22, 2012 11:23 AM

^ It certainly wasn't because of their diversity from track to track !

To clear up a little something, NY was NEVER onsale at arcadefire.com today. I was refreshing all morning and it wasn't there. Whether it was ever supposed to be or not is the confusion. Merge said it would and neither they nor Arcade Fire has said anything to clear that up.
