We love seeing our favorite bands move on to bigger and better things. This is exactly why JAXART started 4 years ago – to serve as a stepping stone for truly deserving musicians to move on to the next level.
We are insanely excited to annouce JAXART alums RACES’ have recently signed to Frenchkiss Records and will be releasing their debut full length on the label this fall. No doubt in my mind that big things are in store.
Angelenos – Come celebrate with the band every Monday this month at the Bootleg Bar where the band will be hosting a Free Residency in partnership with The Fold and 88.9 FM KXLU. The lineups are nothing short of SUPER STELLAR so we hope you come early and stay late!

RACES (formerly known as Black Jesus) formed in the fall of 2009 after singer/songwriter Wade Ryff escaped the sweaty grips of multiple bands, the San Fernando Valley and a real life witch. First formed as an impromptu group assembled for a one-off performance, the band was a haphazard collection of musicians who had befriended one-another over years of playing music. The band of seven is on the verge of releasing their self-recorded and produced album. Pick up their debut release – a 7 inch single of “Big Broom” b/w “Cruel and Rude” out late April 2011 on JAXART Records!
