Japandroids at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Dan Bracaglia)
Japandroids

Japandroids had a great year in 2012 and it doesn't look like they have any plans to stop celebrating rock in 2013. They've already been announced for some spring/summer festivals like NYC's Governors Ball, Quincy, WA's Sasquatch!, Dover, DE's Firefly Music Festival, Manchester, TN's Bonnaroo, Indio, CA's Coachella, and Detroit's Metallica-headlined Orion Music + More; and now they've announced a full international tour surrounding those fests. The dates include a European run with The Gaslight Anthem and a west coast run with Cloud Nothings around the time of Coachella. Most likely because of Governors Ball, there are no other NYC dates to report at the moment.

The band were also recently nominated for the Juno Alternative Album of the Year Award (going up against Hannah Georgas, Metric, Said The Whale, and Stars), and they just stopped by Conan last night (2/25) to perform "The Nights of Wine and Roses." You can watch the video of that performance below.

if this is actually your first time hearing them, don't judge them on that video. youtube search some live shows, they're not a "tv performance" kind of band

9:20 if you think this is good, I feel bad for you.

Yeah, the guitarist's voices is whack. Pretty weak. Are they always that bad?

Anyone else notice that the drummer always inadvertently speeds up whenever he sings?

Posted by Anonymous | February 26, 2013 11:28 AM

that's probably because he's a shitty drummer

wowzers. he is a horrible, horrible drummer indeed. and where the bass at? there's no point in playing totally standard rock songs without a good bassist.

I, like many, enjoy their albums. But seeing them live was a disappointment as it became evident that all their songs are the same schtick.
