We checked them out in the studio and then followed their adventures on their latest national tour... So Crossfade fully recommends Jacobs Ladder's EP release party tonight at, of course, Churchill's. Yes, this kicks off another tour, this time around the Southeast and a little bit up the East Coat, as far as Brooklyn. Too bad there isn't such a thing as frequent van miles. Your $10 entry gets you a free copy of the EP, Ours For the Taking, which is worth owning physically because the album art is awesome. The excellent retro-ish power-poppers of Ex Norwegian also play, as do frequent Jacobs Ladder bill-sharers Flower Flower Yes and I Shot Broadway, and finally, Talent Farm/Solid Sound Studios mainstays Vega Under Fire.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
