Weekly Special #203a: The Static Jacks, live at Cameo, May 8

The Static Jacks are an extremely young rock band from New Jersey that blends Interpol's tense guitar work and driven drum beats with a more "alt-rock" approach; mostly traceable in their preference for epic, open melodies. In their still short career they already managed to play with bands of the caliber of Tokyo Police Club, Youth Group, and Nightmare Of You. Self-described "Infamous rock mangler" Lee A. Cohen (manager of The Dandy Warhols and So So Glos) is a big fan of the band and recently sat down with them for a Deli-cious interview - read it here.
