Didn't find a topic on these guys, they have been all over the MMJ Facebook group. Apparently big jacket heads themselves and have been covering Thank You Too! at their shows.

Their debut album is pretty great, i get a lot of Band of Horses/Dr. Dog/MMJ vibes from them. Going to their show on Wednesday in Dallas at Three Links

I have to check out the album... it must be pretty good.  I have the EP which I enjoyed!

Seeing them Saturday in Nashville and really excited for it! Hopefully one of the boys in Nashville make a public appearance.

These dudes rock! Read this post over breakfast, had them on repeat all morning.  Thanks for posting

Well that was one hell of a show i have to say. Jeff and Jake have amazing energy and talent. Haven't seen two guys have so much fun on stage in a while.
Jake drumming looks like he's beating the devil out of the drums.

They played Thank You Too! and then into a rip roaring Lay Low solo and Jeff stopped for a minute after the song and talked about how much he loved Jacket and could play them all night.

Got to meet a fellow Jacket head and forum member 'Jacket n Pones', pleasure meeting you Sonny!
There were definitely some other jacket fans in the crowd as well.

We talked to Jeff for a bit after the show and he was extremely nice and fun to talk to, said they'll be going on a bigger nationwide tour later this year so if you missed them you should have another chance near the end of the year.

Highly recommend going to see them (although i think they only have 3 or so shows left) definitely listen to them either way!

they just got announced here for a show over the summer opening for Rainbow Kitten Surprise so I was happy to see this thread and that Neil cover goes HARD. Might have to make this show. I know nothing of RKS but just see the name all over the place.
Don't you ever turn it off

I haven't really listened to RKS either but have only heard good things, sounds like a solid show to attend

It was great meeting you too Brian and thanks again for posting about this band! Yes the Thank You Too! into Lay Low solo back to Thank You Too! was incredible. Really enjoyed the other songs that will for sure come to me by listening more but if anyone has the set list please post! We also need to figure out their walk up song because it was a jam. Hopefully those guys are back soon. If anyone likes these guys I would recommend the earlier JEFF The Brotherhood stuff like Heavy Days or Bone Jam which I also came across through this forum. ROCK!
There's still time
