Jackie & The Treehorns

April 1, 2017 @ 10:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Jackie & the Treehorns at Artomatic 2017

Rooted in the basic tenants of a power trio, but borrowing liberally from all styles of rock, Jackie and The Treehorns are an Alexandria, VA-based band that plays all original music. Formed in 2009 by Steven Rubin under the guise of an alter ego and his band, the concept might be tongue-in-cheek but the music most certainly is not.

The band’s music covers a wide sonic palate while Jackie’s lyrics touch on subjects ranging from celebrity stalkers, serial killers, and hitchhikers to oddities such as UFO’s, deja vu, and ghosts. If Radiohead, Queens of the Stone Age, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, Neil Young & Crazy Horse, Sonic Youth, The Flaming Lips, Tom Waits, Pink Floyd and others combined forces to form a supergroup, well, that would be pretty awesome. Since that’s not happening we can safely assume that the sounds of Jackie and The Treehorns will fulfull our desires.

The bands most recent releases, RU4REAL? and Do You Mind If I Wear A Clown Mask?, were recorded at Inner Ear Studios with legendary engineer Don Zientara.
