Jacob Two-Two Take Advantage of Spring

Published: 2005-02-28
They're named after a character who says everything twice, and they've got three vocalists who also happen to be songwriters. Never was a name so befitting a band. Now that that's been said, Ottawa quartet Jacob Two-Two are shaking off the winter sluggishness and gearing up for the touring season. This March the band will venture out of their home base, but they still won't be leaving the borders of their province.

First up is a performance at Canadian Music Week in Toronto this Saturday, which will see them play the same showcase as The Barenaked Ladies' Kevin Hearn. Then to show what big hearts they have, Jacob Two-Two will play a fundraiser in Ottawa, which also happens to be an all ages show. The four-piece currently has shows scheduled until May, but for constant updates go to www.jacobtwotwo.net.

Jacob Two-Two is still out supporting their debut full-length, the rather brilliantly titled "The Elastic Heart of Youth". The 12-track album was released in July of 2004, and is the follow-up to their well-received "Well, Well" EP. Listen to clips of four songs from the three-headed band at their aforementioned web site.

Jacob Two-Two's upcoming gigs:

March 5 Toronto, ON - Clinton's (CMW)
March 12 Ottawa, ON - Glebe Community Centre
March 19 Toronto, ON - Cameron House
March 25 Kingston, ON - Tir Nan Og
March 26 Kingston, ON - Tir Nan Og
