{RECAP} jamestown revival, saints of valory, and the wild feathers

On Tuesday night, we hopped on over to to U St. Music Hall for a much needed night of music featuring Jamestown Revival, Saints of Valory, and The Wild Feathers.

Jamestown Revival was up first. These boys took us by storm like they had just blown into town with some tumbleweed. Make no mistake about it--they were beautiful and rugged in a way that would make even Stacey okay with camping. They had us tapping our toes and swaying as they plucked the slide guitar and I don't think I'm exaggerating when I say that their performance of "Heavy Heart" was so perfect that it was like staring at the sun. It almost hurt too much to watch, but it made you feel so great.

After picking up SXSW tips for the Jamestown Revival boys, we caught interview and babysitting alums Saints of Valory. Their set replaced the rugged, Texan-tinged vibes of Jamestown Revival with skinny jeans, clean-shaven faces, and a poppier sound. The musical contrast between Saints of Valory and Jamestown Revival was akin to craving Mexican food, but being served Chinese. You have nothing against Chinese food, but it takes you a minute to adjust to within your quesadilla-craving mind. Anyway, once we finally worked back up our orange chicken appetite, if you will, we really enjoyed the bands set. They had a ton of energy and the audience went crazy for “Kids.”

Nashville rockers The Wild Feathers closed out the night and brought everything together. They entered to an awesome upbeat throwback intro song that immediately pumped up the crowd (and was reminiscent to Alt-J coming out to "Rack City"). From there, the five-piece crushed their set –- rocking out on the dozen plus guitars scattered across the stage while highlighting one of TIOJ’s most favorite instrument: the mouth radio. We particularly enjoyed “Backwoods Company” whose guitar riff we want to make our life theme song.
