Realizing that in one week JJY will be opening for Georgrapher in DSM :) :) :).
A terrific article by Nate Logsdon (Ames Out Loud) who touches on the success of the Iowa music scene over the past year.
"Cedar Falls music scene hits its stride
One of the brightest spots in the Iowa scene this year was Cedar Falls. Anchored by killer rock and pop acts like Twins, Har-di-Har, Dylan Sires &the Neighbors and John June Year and supported by local-music-friendly clubs like The Hub and The Octopus, Cedar Falls built a strong reputation across the state this year.”

We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas! If you happened to miss our rendition of “I Wish It Was Christmas Today”, here it is.
This is pretty cool. Check out BuzzFeed’s new article The Best Indie Bands You’ve Never Heard Of (From IOWA)

A live cut of JJY original tune “Mind Boosting Secrets ” was featured on DSM blog Band Bombshell. The song was filmed by DEFT. Follow the link below to check out the video + a Q&A with Greg and Kyle.
Here is a live performance of our song “Watch Out Silver!” filmed last month in Cedar Falls.

Just a handful of terrific photos by our friend Stephanie Mathena. Ever wonder who the girl is on our Lounge Lizard / Dangerous Range album cover? That’s her!
Greg is getting some musical inspiration as we prepare for our first full-length album.
Had an incredible time last night at The Gas Lamp in Des Moines! Our friends Dylan Sires and Neighbors joined us to help support Bright*Giant with their live CD release party. Mint and Holy White Hounds both made celebrity appearances as well. So many great rock bands all in one place. Thanks so much, Des Moines!
