Jeff the Brotherhood jams. Diarrhea Planet shreds. The difference may seem slight – but go see both of them live and it’ll shine through in buckets of sweat and glistening guitar tech.
Both bands are from Nashville and are signed to Infinity Cat, a label that Jake and Jamin from Jeff the Brotherhood have run for the past 12 years now. Both bands make loud, gritty rock that incites mosh pits and beer guzzling “fuck yeahs!” from largely male fan bases. On paper, they're almost the same band, but at the 400-head capacity Rock and Roll Hotel on Friday night, the difference in energy and fan base was overwhelming. So much so that each set felt like a different concert.
