Sugar Blood Jinx w/ Margaret & The Copilots
Say goodbye to 2019 with a stompy swampy set from SBJ and special guest opener to be announced soon. We'll do the countdown to midnight and ring in 2020 with a champagne (of beers) Miller High Life pony toast.
To grasp the story of Sugar Blood Jinx, you simply need to listen to one of the tracks off their first album. A song called Hardcore Boogie which was written by Eric Waxwood.
Three verses; all 100% autobiographical; all true.
Life can get pretty hardcore sometimes. From guns accidentally going off at home to being an innocent bystander during an armed robbery; these are the kind of reasons you've got to boogie. Or just turn those real hard blues into something that can raise you up. That's the Sugar Blood Jinx Mantra. Blues with attitude.
It's right there in their name, Sugar Blood Jinx. Earlier in his life, just when Eric decided to devote his time learning the style of the Pre-war country blues masters (Charlie Patton, Blind Boy Fuller, Robert Johnson), he was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes. At the time, a friend bestowed upon him the Blues name 'Sugar Blood', and in the same way the Blues musicians of the past turned they're adversity into a positive, so would Sugar Blood... Let's just say the Jinx part is all about running with the bad luck that life deals you.
Sugar Blood Jinx play good-timey hardcore-boogie blues with attitude. So get up or shut up!
Margaret Garrett played in the garage/ blues/ rock duo Mr.Airplane Man fo almost two decades, releasing seven full length records on Sympathy Records and touring internationally. The band is currently on hiatus, giving Garrett a chance to write and perform in a trio. She has joined forces with Gregg Porter in drums (Bucco Nero, The Concerns, Bauchitherium) and Djim Reynolds on bass (Buco Nero). The drums and bass pair have been together since art school days and have played in several bands together (Milkweed, Tiger Saw, Lonesome Red, Strand of Oaks and Jason Anderson).
Garrett, Reynolds and Porter create a sound thats dreamy, hypnotic, sometimes driving and always spacious. Psych/folk/rock/blues style.
Influences from velvet underground, Byrd's to contemporaries like Steve Gunn, Cass McComb, Tuareg music.
