If you’ve never had a chance to check out the great Scottish band We Were Promised Jet Packs, well, it might still be tough, considering their show tonight at the Bowery Ballroom (with Bad Veins) is sold out. We Were Promised Jetpacks have come a long way since their initial days playing at their school’s “Battle of the Bands,” as their record deal with Fat Cat Records back in 2008 clearly underscores (joining a roster of artists that includes their former touring partners and friends Frightened Rabbit).
The band returns to Brooklyn to play the Knitting Factory on February 15, before continuing on its tour across the country, so if you don’t already have tickets tonight, there’s always next week. But if you happen to live on the West coast, be sure to check them out when Bear Hands joins the tour starting in Phoenix on February 23.
“Roll Up Your Sleeves” is the second single off their first LP, These Four Walls, which was released last summer.
