Jagged Spiral Live – Terminal Bar 29 Nov 08


Hopefully you’ve realized The Tryptophan Is A Lie and your Thanksgiving Coma was all in your head…

Hopefully you were a kind and courteous consumer on “Black Friday” and let the other people merge on the roads, parking lots and shopping lines in front of you without giving them the finger…

Hopefully you’ll be able to put all the sleepiness, consumerism and poor driving skills behind you and come to the Terminal Bar in Minneapolis on Nov 29th, where Jagged Spiral will perform mostly live, along with our good and sober friends S.B.I.

$5 Cover, Music starts at 9, Jagged Spiral is not the first band, nor the last. We hope to see you there!

Jagged Spiral Concert – Terminal Bar Thur 24 Sept 09

First, a big Thanks to everyone who made it to the Terminal Bar last Saturday for a stellar performance all around.

The Terminal of course did a great job, although they could not have forseen that with S.B.I. involved and the fact that our show was sponsored by Jagermeister, their supplies of that particular resource would be quickly depleted.

Thanks to Yusef, our good friend and guitarist for the massive band Nothing Gained. Thanks much for flying over from England just for this event, and kicking axe on some great guitar. Thanks also to S.B.I. for lending us their lead singer for a song. Borrowing members from other bands is kind of like letting someone borrow your wife or girlfriend (or both,) except everyone’s watching which makes it even more awkward. But the show was, as they say, a smashing success.

Which is why we’ve been invited back to do it again!

Thursday 24 Sept 2009, Jagged Spiral takes the stage once more at The Terminal Bar in Minneapolis, MN. No additional band members this time (unless someone can play the bassline to Horrorcloud…) just pure, undiluted 3-piece Jagged Spiral.

Noise starts up at 9PM and Jagged Spiral plays first. Check the terminal bar’s website for other bands. I think there’s a cover, but even if there isn’t you really should slip your favorite band a fiver, or a Jag Bomb, or an I-Phone, or something.

Jagged Spiral Concert at Target Center – CANCELLED

I had a press release armed, locked, loaded and ready to spread fear into the hearts of music purists, music reviewers and real musicians all over the world. Josh, Colin and I were excited to announce what was sure to be the concert event of the summer at Target Center with Jagged Spiral and S.B.I.

‘Tellin ya, it woulda brought tears to your ears.

On behalf of Jagged Spiral, Inc. I regret to inform you that due to circumstances beyond our control, the concert originally scheduled for Wed August 19th at Target Center has been canceled. All tickets purchased for the show will be refunded.

Our legal department is working nonstop to declassify our music as a threat to National Security. Until such time, Josh, Colin and I will continue writing/practicing/drinking/recording until our music can be more properly classified as a threat to the security of the entire planet.

Then, we’ll be able to play anywhere and anytime we want. Or else.

Jagged Spiral Concert – Station 4 on 4 June 2009

It’s a full day at Station 4 on the 4th of June 2009! It all kicks off at 5PM with an all ages show featuring ‘Drop Dead, Georgeous’, ‘He Is Legend’, and ‘And Then There Were None’

After 10PM the show kicks into high gear with S.B.I., Riverbottom Suckerfish, Deathroned, and of course Jagged Spiral!

So come on out! Get strung out on Red Bull and Pop Rocks. And if you do a headfirst stage dive into the crowd you will get an all-expenses paid trip to the hospital. (Some restrictions may apply, medical insurance coverage required.)

Jagged Spiral Concert – Sunday March 1 at the Dinkytowner

Some of you may remember the 2008 Battle of the Bands that Jagged Spiral participated in? Well, because of our outstanding turnout and stellar performance last year, we’ve been asked to participate again this year. So here’s your chance to see us live, along with seven other local bands competing for a chance to play the final battle at the Varsity Theatre with a $1000 grand prize!

Sunday March 1 at the Dinkytowner Cafe, the show starts at 4PM, and continues till around 9-ish. The exact start time is to be determined by pre-show ticket sales. The band that sells the most tickets gets to pick their time slot first, and thereafter in descending order of tickets sold. We’re hoping to get an early-to middling time slot, (in the 5-7PM range) but we won’t know for sure until the doors open. The more of you who purchase tickets in advance the better our chances of getting a good time slot!

Ticket sales are counted at 3PM, so please make sure to purchase your tickets in advance, from Josh, Colin or myself, or e-mail booking@jaggedspiral.com

Tickets are $8. We hope to see you there!

Jagged Spiral Presents – Days From Evil CD Release

CDs are on order, and three years of hard work are about to pay off. We are excited to announce that Jagged Spiral’s debut masterwork, “Days From Evil” will be available in CD form on 11 July 2008!

“Days From Evil” is a concept album which tells the story of a hero confronting monsters only he can see. The music covers a wide range of genres, including Gothic Hard Rock, Acoustic Ballads, and Majestic Epic Metal. Much of the music on “Days From Evil” was also used by Jagged Spiral in the movie score for the local vampire movie “Pray For Daylight” from Stone Soup Films.

Ha, and my guidance councilor said I’d never accomplish anything! Now he owes me five bucks! Not surprisingly, that’s the same price as admission to the upcoming Days From Evil CD Release Party! For the price of 1.25 gallons of gas, (which won’t even get you halfway up to the lake for the 4th of July,) you can experience an entire evening of devastating music, as Jagged Spiral takes the stage at Club Underground on Friday, July 11th, to celebrate the release of our new CD.

Our live show will contain some stripped-down selections from “Days From Evil”, (Sorry, no acoustic guitars and no string orchestras!) and plenty of new material, all of it dark metallic rock fueled by adrenaline and Jag-Bombs. Bring earplugs.

Friday, 11 July 2008 – Doors at 9PM, – Music at 9:30
Club Underground – 355 Monroe St, Mpls MN
21+ (Bring ID!) – Cover $5

The Days From Evil CD will be available for purchase at the show for $8. All proceeds from the sale of the CD will go towards the following:

  • Josh’s Red Bull addiction
  • Fines from the City of Minneapolis for ‘disturbing the peace’
  • The massive debt we ran up during the three years it took us to get this project finished

Also, we have some very special guests joining us for the event: S.B.I., Sick Machine and Something To Fear (who just got done kicking tail at the Flight of the Valkyries festival!) so come out and celebrate with us!

-Jagged Spiral

PS: If you know anyone who likes loud guitars, please pass the message along! Share the Spiral!
