Midwest Fest 2011 Countdown: Jetpack On! and Elliot Street Lunatic
Jetpack On! have pop hooks a plenty, with a radio-ready rhythm section on call. This band, who are reuniting for Midwest Fest 2011, are pop rock at its finest. A little jagged around the edges but not enough to turn away your ears. Songs like “Do It Again” emphasize the poppy experimentation that the band blends together so well. For being a three piece, they have a huge sound. Be sure to see them at MW Fest this year.
Elliot Street Lunatic have had a wild 2011 thus far. They’ve played countless shows across Michigan, including opening for Atomic Tom back in February. In May, the ventured out to Colorado and Arizona for awesome shows. In June, they recorded their second album with Casey Crescenzo of the Dear Hunter, which will be released later this year. Having seen the band multiple times, each time has gotten better and better. If you have yet to see them, please do yourself a favor and see them on the last night of Midwest Fest.
