JEFF the Brotherhood @ Subterranean, August 2012 (more by Sara Pieper)
Nashville-based road warriors JEFF the Brotherhood are bad at taking it easy (and that's a good thing). They've been touring hard since their latest album, Hypnotic Nights, hit stores back in July via Warner Brothers. The sibling duo only have a handful of upcoming shows, one of which is a performance at Subterranean on April 3. Tickets for the Chicago show go on sale this Saturday (2/09) at 10AM CST.
All known JEFF the Brotherhood tour dates and some videos are below...

California's The Growlers hit Chicago last week to play an afternoon set on Friday (8/3) of Lollapalooza and a club show that night at Subterranean, with support from JEFF the Brotherhood and FIDLAR.

The group are slated to begin a fall North American tour in September, which kicks off with a performance at FYF Fest in Los Angeles.

Last night (1/20), while a snowstorm ripped through Chicago, fans packed into the Riv to catch the opening night of The Kills' 10th anniversary tour with opening sets by JEFF the Brotherhood and Hunters.
Brooklyn's Hunters (not to be confused with Chicago's Hunters) kicked off the night with a blistering, emotionally-charged set. As teased by their recorded music, these guys and girl were LOUD, managing to engage the early crowd and not just be something to sit through. Their noisy punk was a great precursor to JEFF the Brotherhood.
Taking the stage a bit late due to their drive in the snow from Nashville to Chicago, brothers Jake and Jamin Orrall (aka JEFF the Brotherhood) played a short set of psychedelic garage rock. Using two of Chicago's thunderous Emperor cabs, Jake shredded on a modified guitar, adding tons of distortion and wah effects. He and Jamin lock up nicely, kicking out fun songs to headbang to. Though they were only able to squeeze in about five of them, members of the audience got wild enough to crowd-surf and mosh. JEFF closed out their set with fan-favorite "I'm A Freak."
Complete with leopard-print backdrop, The Kills took to the stage at roughly 10PM and jumped straight into the title track of their sophomore LP No Wow. Vocalist Allison Mosshart (or "VV"), who now has pink-ish colored hair, paced the stage like a runway when not singing. The duo, also consisting of guitarist Jamie Hince (or "Hotel"), then jumped to their most recently released album Blood Pressures to play "Future Starts Slow" and "Heart Is A Beating Drum." Mosshart grabbed a guitar about halfway through the later, providing a rhythm lead for Hince to solo over.
To me, what stands out the most about The Kills is Jamie's guitar style. You rarely see him use a pick and instead, he pinches at the strings which in return creates a tone like no other. "U.R.A. Fever" came next with much applause from the crowd. Two female backup singers as well as two percussionists (additional to the drum machine) joined the stage and stuck around for most of the show. This brought extra texture without taking away from Allison and Jamie's performance. During "Satellite," one of my favorites off of Blood Pressures, Mosshart wailed into the mic like a female >Robert Plant, commanding the attention of every audience member as she swayed across the stage. Late in the show, the duo pulled out an unexpected, stripped-down cover of Willie Nelson's "Crazy" (made famous by Patsy Cline) while seated at the edge of the stage.
After performing for a little over an hour the duo then exited the stage, quickly returning for the four song encore of "The Last Goodbye," "Sour Cherry," "Fuck The People," and "Monkey 23."
Check out some more pictures from the show, below..
Hunters in Brooklyn in 2011 (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Tickets are still on sale for tomorrow's (1/20) Kills show at the Riv. If you're going, it goes without saying that you should get there early enough to witness the awesomeness that is Jeff the Brotherhood, but we're also going to make an effort to catch first-opener Hunters from Brooklyn. More pictures from one of their hometown shows can be seen HERE. Listen to "Hands on Fire", their recently released 5-song, James Iha-produced/Nick Zinner-mixed EP, at bandcamp. Tune in to their live Daytrotter session at 5pm today (1/19).
Though we admittedly got confused ourselves, Hunters from Brooklyn are not to be confused with the Chicago metal band who are also named Hunters, and who just so happen to be playing Empty Bottle on Sunday (part of a four day tour with Antietam 1862 that starts today). Tickets are still on sale for the Empty Bottle show on Ticketweb (where you'll also find links to the wrong Hunters, and a picture of the NY Hunters' EP).
More NY Hunters tour dates (aka Kills tour dates) HERE.
