“They rocked like the Clash with sunshine,” one commenter writes. Hell yeah. This show is from April 29, 1998. Alan Crandall’s article from Perfect Sound Forever is a good introduction to the band. Jason Ringenberg, the Jason from the band, plays solo shows at Valentine’s up here in Albany once in awhile. Hope he does again soon, with or without the Scorchers. The band’s official website looks like it’s active.
UPDATE: Thanks to Marie, who says in her comment that Jason is playing Valentine’s on Friday, October 23. If that’s true, I will be having my book launch party for How to Be Inappropriate downstairs earlier that very same evening from 6-9pm. Looks like I’ll be there all night. Maybe Jason will swing into town early and sing karaoke at my party? We’ll see.
