On April 3, 2010 at Santos Party House in New York, the Brooklyn-based band The Jaguar Club opened for Irish rockers Ash. Though they site Echo and The Bunnymen, The Smiths and Talking Heads as influences, I was getting a Jeff Buckley meets Jim Morrison vibe from charismatic lead singer Will Popadic. Their brief 30 minute set was upbeat and the crowd was left begging for more as they left the stage. I think this band has the potential to be a huge success and it was really great seeing them live in the intimate space at Santos Party House. If you want to check them out for yourself, which I highly recommend, click here and you can grab free mp3s of their tracks “Sleepwalking,” “World Gone By,” “This Year,” and “Who Says We’re The Last.” Of course after hearing those songs, you will want more and at that same link you can also purchase their music. I am looking forward to hearing big things about this band in the very near future.
