A Sky Jet Black
Ladies and Gentlemen, a warm round of applause for Patrick Marshall of Knifight fame, who's done us the kindness of allowing us to repost this piece.
I caught A Sky Jet Black for the first time at Beauty Bar over a year ago. Following my initial experience, I made a point to see them live as much as possible. Upon first listen, they sound something like female-fronted Joy Division with allusions to The Cure reeling from Disintegration or Siouxsie and the Banshees fresh off The Scream.
Tim, Kara, and more recently Cody, have been feverishly working through the summer on a self-produced album in their guesthouse-turned-studio. They hope to have it finished and ready for release this fall. This album, like cooler weather, cannot come soon enough.
Cheer Up Charlie’s, a charming, hip dive bar on East Sixth Street with Bali Yaaah, Cry for Us Black Swans, and Les RAV. You can and should catch their next performance alongside some of the same acts on Sunday, September 18th at Swan Dive.
