In the indie/emo world, Cap’n Jazz are more influential than ever. The band — whose members went on to form American Football, Owen, Owls, Joan of Arc, The Promise Ring, Maritime and more — reunited back in 2010 for a few shows (including Brooklyn Bowl and FFF Fest) and then went back into hibernation. In the time since, American Football released their first album in 17 years, Owls released their first album in 13, and The Promise RIng reunited twice. (Joan of Arc and Owen also remained very active). Last year we interviewed Mike Kinsella and asked him about Cap’n Jazz, and it seemed unlikely that we’d get another reunion. As it turns out, though, we are.

Cap’n Jazz are one of the many bands just announced for the very stacked FYF Fest, happening in LA this July. Tickets go on sale this Friday (3/24). Check out the whole lineup HERE. Our fingers are crossed for more Cap’n Jazz shows.

Cap’n Jazz singer Tim Kinsella was just at SXSW with Joan of Arc, supporting their very good new album. One of their shows was the BrooklynVegan/Sound on Sound-presented Lost Weekend. They played the same day as Minus the Bear, Trail of Dead, PWR BTTM, and more. Check out pics HERE.

Before SXSW, Joan of Arc opened the American Football show at Terminal 5 (pics) in NYC. American Football’s reunion album and Owen’s latest album were among our favorite albums of 2016.
