Playing live for the first time in a long, long time, The Jet Age will be rocking the house this week at Tropicalia. I think the last show I saw in D.C. before moving to Hong Kong was the December 9, 2011, Jet Age gig with Deathfix. The pics and videos here come from that gig back then. It seemed like a fitting final show for me to see before moving away.
(Oddly, I am nowadays cranking Jet Age songs like "Left for Dead" on my iPod in Hong Kong while I dream of escaping HK and heading back to Maryland, but enough about me!)
The Jet Age are probably -- most likely -- gonna debut songs from their new record, Jukebox Memoir, at this upcoming gig. That album will be the follow-up to 2011's excellent Domestic Disturbances.
The Jet Age will be sharing the stage with Tereu Tereu, DJ sets from Paul from the Hometown Sounds blog, and the thoroughly wicked Heavy Breathing. I saw Heavy Breathing when I was home last Christmas and they rocked. Here are the details on that gig.

And be sure to check out the official website for The Jet Age for more details on their upcoming album, Jukebox Memoir, which should drop in the early part of 2014 and it's got some surprise guests on it. Or so I've heard.
