Secondhand Sunday: Jukebox the Ghost – “Hold It In”


Yes, we know it’s been a few weeks since we did a glorious Secondhand Sunday piece.  I guess we’ve had it on a mini hiatus. Well, last night it was decided that it should make a return. Not always with videos from the way past though, but maybe up and coming bands?  We’ll see. You’ll see.

Today’s Secondhand Sunday goes to Jukebox the Ghost. Seeing the band play with the Miniature Tigers and Free Energy last night, in what was the most amazing lineup I’ve seen in possibly forever, at New York City’s Bowery Ballroom, they blew me away. Ben Thornewill has an incredibly catchy voice and you just couldn’t help but watch him on the piano. Mixed in with Tommy Siegel’s equally fun voice and guitar playing and Jesse Kristin’s  get-your-ass-up-and-dance drumming, I’m ashamed to say this is the first time I have ever taken a listen to the band.

One tee shirt and a record later, here I am. Take a peek at this amazing band’s 2008 video for “Hold It In.” Let the addiction begin.
