The Jaguar Club: Jezebel Music February 2009 Feature Artist
JEZEBEL MUSIC FEATURE
The Jaguar Club (pictured) is Jezebel Music’s Feature Artist for February 2009. With openers My Pet Dragon, The Courtesy Tier and Trashed on Fiction, The Jaguar Club will headline the February Feature Show at Public Assembly on Thursday, February 12.
Although The Jaguar Club recently finished recording, and are highly anticipating the release of their first full-length album, they are a band with many shows and tour miles under their belt, and thrive on live performances. “A touring lesson we’ve learned is that we do not do Delaware,” says Will Popadic, singer and guitarist of Brooklyn-based trio The Jaguar Club. “We are pretty loyal to the good people at Motel 6 around the country, however we do always cheat them by booking a room for one person and then sneaking the other two in (we feel that our very repeat business offsets this in some karmic way) and this has never been a problem except in Delaware where we stopped one night very very late coming home from DC.”
“This particular Motel 6 had a security guard who caught Yoi and myself in the van while Jere was checking in. So Jere stayed there and Yoi and the van of gear and I went across the street to a by-the-hour place where the guy at the desk told us ‘you guys had better take the room next to the office’, as if we were a couple of little kids. But the place was crawling with strange individuals and hookers, so we were slightly sketched out. We laid in our shared bed wide awake, afraid to sleep in case the van would get busted into. We were only there for like four hours anyway. It was a very large, nice motel room actually, with a kitchenette in case you wanted to cook dinner for your hooker I guess.”
