It seems that the Dudes of Daytrotter, that sonically-no-frills, visually variegated bastion of indie music, have taken notice of the burgeoning South Florida music scene. Last February they welcomed West Palm Beach duo the Dewars and, separately, Coral Springs-based dance inciter Millionyoung into the studio, and now the Jacuzzi Boys have sat for their very own polychromatic portrait. Joining an illustrious roster that includes everyone from Bela Fleck and Bonnie Prince Billy to Okkervil River and Sunset Rubdown, the Jacuzzi Boys — the trio of Gabriel Alcala, Danny Gonzales, and Diego Monasterios — now have the boon of the Daytrotter bump as they get ready to embark on a nine-date tour through the American South at the end of the month followed by 26 dates throughout Western Europe and the UK. Here’s an excerpt from Daytrotter founder Sean Moeller’s companion write-up:
Tonight! Swing by Midtown lounge Ricochet for Rachel Goodrich’s first Miami show in almost a year, co-presented by Beached Miami. Rachel will take the stage with her band, The Moneybags, and afro-indie rock quintet Kazoots is opening. Come thirsty — there will be Grolsch beer specials all night. To learn more about the show, check out the event page on Facebook.
Here is Rachel and the Moneybags playing an acoustic version of “Run To You” on WLRN’s Folk & Acoustic Music with Michael Stock last Sunday.
