"Also at 169 Bar was a crowd-pleasing trio called Jagwire. Wow, did the crowd love them. Spitting lyrics that are easy and fun to sing along to, Eric and Josh on vocals were refreshingly dynamic. Thom, whose arms are probably the most pliable I’ve ever seen, rocked so hard on drums that he had to remove his shirt-and-tie ensemble halfway through the set.

Jagwire were alternative with just enough pop to appeal to the masses. I liken them to The White Stripes. Their sound is much more mature than that of Corduroy Days, and the tempos of their many songs were well varied.

My favorite song was “You Should Have Seen Her,” which was slow and witty. I can’t wait to see them again.

Bio

Jagwire sounds a little like if Chuck Berry wrote songs for the Pixies, but Eric Burdon stole the demos and performed the songs with the Who. Jagwire gives an exciting live show with high energy, catchy melodies and good ol’ rock ‘n’ roll fun.

Over the past year, Jagwire has been gaining a rapidly growing fan base. They typically bring about 50 people on a weekend and 30-40 people on a weeknight. Places Jagwire has played include The Annex, Arlene's Grocery, Rockwood Music Hall, The Delancey, Crash Mansion, Kenny's Castaways, Fat Baby, Bar 169, Mo Pitkins, Moonshine and a Bushwick rooftop for which Thom has to appear in court in March.

Be on the lookout for their upcoming EP! (February 2009)
