Cap’n Jazz reunion continues; FREE Chicago show with Hop Along added
When the 2017 lineup for LA’s FYF Fest was announced, one of its most surprising and exciting inclusions was another reunion of Cap’n Jazz, the influential emo band whose members went on to form American Football, Owen, Owls, Joan of Arc, The Promise Ring, Maritime, and more. We wondered if that would be their only show of 2017, and fortunately, it isn’t.
The band also play the first-ever Chicago installment of the free summer shows at House of Vans, which is also presented by FYF. Their show is on July 29, one week after FYF Fest, and it’s with the great Philly band Hop Along (who also opened the Owls reunion tour). RSVP opens on July 17 at 10 AM EST.
Fingers crossed for a Cap’n Jazz show on the east coast! Meanwhile, stream their classic discography compilation, Analphabetapolothology:
