Boston's Old Soul Rock n' Roll outfit OldJack are proud to announce their residency on the last Saturday of each month at Cambridge's Lizard Lounge. OldJack's Last Saturdays will feature a rotating cast of the finest musicians New England has to offer. Tonight with EDDIE JAPAN and DARK WHEELS
Bostons Eddie Japan combines 60s baroque pop and mod influences with the less restrained tendencies of 80s alternative guitar bands to create a soaring, dramatic sound that stands apart from the beats and banjos of todays indie scene. The band has been described by the Boston Herald as ...a circus of jazzy horn lines and girl group cooing, of swinging 60s cool and odd 80s new wave.
After the breakup of seminal Boston-based art-pop band Tribe in the mid-90s, guitarist Eric Brosius and bassist Greg LoPiccolo took a long hiatus from band life to devote themselves to videogame development working on titles such as Guitar Hero, Rock Band, and Bioshock.
Twenty years later, new music began to rise to the surface. Long-time friendships brought together guitarist Bart LoPiccolo (Scatterfield, Eddie Japan), and drummer Paul Gallo (OldJack, Derangers) and new songs took shape - songs built from the tension and interplay of Barts and Erics 70s-inflected guitars combined with Pauls complementary feel. Equal parts craft and aggression, the Dark Wheels sound is rooted in the traditions of the 70s and 80s, but occupies a stylistic and emotional space that is all their own. An extended search for a singer finally payed off with the addition of Dave Plante, who brings range and power that holds its own amidst the Dark Wheels guitar storm. After obsessive attention to songs they are finally happy with, Dark Wheels are poised to release their debut EP, with more music to come.

"When we created the new lineup (of OldJack) we had a pretty agressive gig schedule so we were constantly preparing for shows when we got together" says OldJack frontman Dan Nicklin.
