Jets to Brazil, “Sweet Avenue” – 10.10.98
When Jets to Brazil formed from the ashes of Jawbreaker and Texas is the Reason, they went on tour with The Promise Ring and ran through Minneapolis on their way to bigger and better things. I missed the first song of their first MPLS show, showing up just as they were finishing. It was this one: a song so filled with hope and happiness and love that the crowd was left wondering if this, indeed, was the same Blake Schwarzenbach that had filled an entire career of Jawbreaker songs with depression and broken hearts.
It was. And it (reportedly) was fantastic.
