Jack Penate w/ Miike Snow Jump Around @ Entry 9/26/09
Not exactly looking like Prince or MJ, Jack Penate sure brings the beats and voice. Pop/Soul/Indie whatever you want to call his music, it sounds good. One of my friends in the crowd drew more respect for Jack because he didn't use his british accent to gain advantage on pleasing the audience. I really dug his backing band as well adding more energy and noise to the set. Along with the nearly sold out crowd the band really got Jack excited throughout the set playing in Minneapolis.
After talking to Jack after the show he didn't say he had been collaborating with any artists other than Mike Skinner of (The Streets).
I'll be honest I was a little disappointed Penate didn't headline the show but Andrew Wyatt's band(Miike Snow) from Sweden was pretty good. Coming out as "Jabbawockeez", this band was truly great. They reminded me of local band Solid Gold, whose lead singer was also in attendance for this show.
