Jakubi – Rock n’ Roll Hotel, DC 09/29/16

October 19th, 2016 by The Professor

jakubi-092916-jerome Words & Photos by Jeremy Stephenson
Hailing from the land down under, Jakübi is a five-piece band that is something entirely different from what you have been listening to. Comprised of five great guys who were all best of friends, actually family, before making music. There are the two brothers, Jerome (vocals and talkbox) and Jacob (bass and moog), the cousins, Adam (or Addzy, guitar) and Jesse (drums) and last but not least the mutual friend of everyone, Rob (guitar). Coming from relatively new beginnings, Jakübi released their first recorded song, “Can’t Afford it All” in 2013 and second, “Holiday” within three weeks of each other gaining more than a 100,000 listens on SoundCloud. Ever since those days of jamming for hours in their studio in Melbourne, Jakübi has been gaining a formidable following in both America and Australia. Recently signing to Epic Records in 2015, Jakübi released their first EP, 61 Barkley (the address of where they recorded their first songs) headlined by their single “Nobody Better”.

Presented by OKAY Recordings, this night is about the comedy and the community.

But if you come out, make sure to get some red risotto or truffle oil pizza and eat in class while watching people tell some great jokes. With some of Baltimore best pizza made with local goods, the food might even be better than the entrainment. Maybe, you can be as good as the food though and make the crowd laugh.
