TKO – Jargon Party Premiers Music Video For “Surf Rock Anthem Number 7”

Jargon Party experiences death by video game in their debut music video.

Portland, ME surf rockers Jargon Party lose the game in their debut music video for the first single "Surf Rock Anthem Number 7" off their upcoming full-length (release date TBD).

Filmed by Jason Boasch (Red Stallion Media) on location at Arcadia National Bar in Portland, ME, temptation of the game gets the best of the band in this grainy, electrified music video. One by one the band wonders off to compete and ultimately succumb to defeat, leaving the lone singer chanting “There’s nothing left”, before he too is annihilated.

“We're pretty avid gamers of all varieties so we thought it would be fun to combine the two. We wanted the video to have a bit of an arcade feel…kind of like a game within a game, with each of us having our own battles,” singer/guitarist Zach Lewis tells Bishop & Rook. “When each of us ultimately loses, our characters reset, waiting for the game to start again as whichever totem or avatar that we'd selected.” Drummer Jake Erskine's day job of pinball repairman at Arcadia made for a perfect filming location.

Originally created as a solo project by Zach Lewis in Brooklyn in 2012, Jargon Party is now based out of Portland, Maine and operates as a 4-piece with Zach Lewis, Eric Schnare, Dustin Graham, and Jake Erskine. 

You can download your free copy of "Surf Rock Anthem Number 7" via Bandcamp (at a name your price donation). Follow the band on Facebook and Twitter for show dates and additional release information.

Upcoming Jargon Party Shows:
October 8th - Ralph's Diner, Worcester
October 9th - Fran's Place, Lynn
October 10th - Northeastern University
October 11th - O'Briens, Allston with The Versa Contrast, Black Hatch and Super Hide - presented by Lysten Boston

The Restless Atlantic - 'Chasm'

Chasm’ is a 9-track modern-day melodic rock record strung together by the sincere efforts of a young band.

You could name drop for days if you were to attempt to compare ‘Chasm’, the debut LP from The Restless Atlantic, to a similar sounding record. And that’s not necessarily a terrible thing. The Portland, Maine quartet demonstrates their influences from classic rock to grinding mid-era screamo, with a sprinkle of nostalgic 90’s emo to ground their driving sound.

Plan a Trip to Portland

Essentially a foodie pilgrimage, I spent three days and two nights in Portland, Maine, (destroying my diet) being a fat kid.

Deciding to forego a typical Cape Cod Labor Day Weekend, we headed up to Maine where our money could be spent on dietary delights that were Food Network worthy. A basket of overpriced, indistinguishable fried food and melty soft serve versus co-op harvested vegetables, grilled and pressed on locally made artisan bread?
Welcome to Vacation Land.

Here is my mini-Maine guide to Portland.

Honestly, I was too busy eating to make out
