Jux County is playing a rare show this Thursday, July 24th, at 9 p.m. at the Eslinger Gallery for the UMS. Since forming in December 1986, Jux County has become a fixture in the local music scene. Within the first few years of the band's existence it had released its debut, the Word of Bovek cassette, and hard garnered a bit of a following for its wiry, funk and punk and country sound. In 1990, the band opened for Nirvana at The Garage/23 Parish on that group's tour for the album Bleach, it was featured on Channel 12's Teletunes program and it has the distinction of having been the first band to ever play Lion's Lair in 1991.
"They had a cabaret license, but they never used it and they figured out they could have shows," recalls guitarist and singer Andy Monley. "Some other bands said they played there before us but I don't really know."
