Crossfade braved the "four" hour drive to check out Florida's Dying's six-year anniversary at Will's Pub and experience what the fuck is going on up there and meet who's a part of it.
Though we've seen the Jacuzzi Boys many times here, we had previously missed West Palm's the Jameses. They, like other bands who performed, haven't released anything on Florida's Dying, but were featured this weekend anyway. The Jamses wowed us, in the sense that we said "wow!" and got all excited.
Their lo-fi psychedelic pop music was super danceable, and seemed to me to be under-appreciated. The room was packed, but there wasn't enough physical reassurance going on there with the crowd. Someone bring them back to Dade. We want more. Their debut LP will be released this year on Captured Tracks.
The Jameses need to come back to Miami.
Holding a beer upright while crowd surfing takes dedication, practice, and talent.
Bra as scarf.
Will's Pub had a good selection of beers and even Strongbow on tap (the way to go).
