Jacuzzi Boys - The Cavern - Dallas, TX (5.13.2010)

The Jacuzzi Boys are a lo-fi, psychedelic, garage-punk band from from Miami Florida. They formed in 2007 and quickly gained a following as they released a series of successful 7inches. In 2009 the small Indy label Florida's Dying released their first full length record No Seasons, In 2010 they recorded a live album for Jack White's Third Man Records, and just last month in August of 2011 they released their second album Glazin' on Hardly Art, a subsidiary of Sub Pop.

The Jacuzzi Boys prove that you don't need to be from California to make catchy sun baked surf rock for apathetic, drugged-addled hipster kids. Their sound is comparable to many of the giants of the California garage scene such as Ty Segall, Hunx and His Punx, and Nobunny. But the Jacuzzi Boy's sound does differ from their contemporaries in a few key ways. They come across as more genuine than cute, they are less poppy and gimmicky than Nobunny or Hunx, and they have managed to retain the high level of energy that Ty Segall brought to his early records but seems to be lacking in his later work.

It is very rare to get a good bootleg of a current band. Most bands don't start getting bootlegged until decades after their prime. This record was recorded at The Cavern in Dallas Texas a little over a year ago on April 13th, 2010. It captures the early days of a phenomenal band that has yet to peak.

This record is from a fairly high quality soundboard recording. The songs are all taken from their first album or other early singles, but this live performance is unique because it is markedly more high energy and raw than on any of their official records.
