We had a great time with AJJ. We met them at Retro Bar, from where, after a long discussion about Barsuk Records, we headed to the ‘Eureka Statue’ near Sackville Street. We had met some die hard fans along the way, who were cordially invited to come and watch the session. Everyone left smiling after witnessing this incredible performance. Come back soon AJJ!
Andrew Jackson Jihad is an American folk/punk/rock group from Phoenix, Arizona, formed in 2004. They have been classified as everything from indie rock to anti-folk to Americana.
Andrew Jackson Jihad was formed after its original drummer, Justin James White, approached Sean Bonnette and Ben Gallaty, who had just left Rodan (not the Rodan of Kentucky fame) and The Sub-Standards. Since then, many significant Arizona musicians have sat in with the remaining duo of Sean and Ben, including John De La Cruz of Fatigo and Asleep In The Sea’s Owen Evans. Dylan Cook also plays mandolin regularly with the band.
