Flier of the Week: Andrew Jackson Jihad

Almost every local venue has been going through a long post-holiday slump, booking-wise. Not Trunk Space. The Jewel of Grand Avenue has been staging a ton of shows lately, including the Back Ted N-Ted concert we shot earlier this week and the concert promoted by this cool flier, local folkie Andrew Jackson Jihad, who's also doing a lot California shows in the next month.

Jihad has a nice sound, but he also gets some cred from his MySpace's About Me section, wherein he posts a hilariously negative review of his record. If more You Asked For It bands follow suit, I'll have more MySpace mentions than Tila Tequilla in no time.
