ANDREW JACKSON JIHAD

AUTHOR. DEAF INSTITUTE

We are super excited to have Andrew Jackson Jihad playing for us in the Music Hall at The Deaf Institute this October.

Christmas Island, the 5th album proper from Andrew Jackson Jihad, is a little bit silly, a little bit serious. Whether it’s life, love, death, loss or Linda Ronstadt, this record has it all, delving into the most profound of emotions, reaching deep into the heart of humanity, unveiling universal truths through the most unlikely of scenarios.

Of course if you’re aware of Andrew Jackson Jihad you’ll be aware that they’ve been doing exactly that for the last decade and have built a significant cult following since their inception in 2004.

The tension between fury and forgiveness, anger and calm, love, hate, life, and death, isn’t just thematic – it’s woven into the fabric of these songs. It’s the frenetic chaos between these motifs that makes for such a raucous, untamed, and inexplicable live atmosphere. 

This should be a fantastic show, and if you've been lucky enough to get tickets we hope you enjoy it!!
