Some bands are like those brilliant, glowing sparklers that you light on Independence Day. They burn really brightly for a couple minutes and then fizzle out. Promising Nashville rockers Be Your Own Pet did just that. They put out an album, toured for a couple years, and then imploded in on themselves. A year later, rising from the ashes of that band, former guitarist and bassist, Jake and Jamin Orrall have decided to get serious about their side band, Jeff the Brotherhood. Releasing their fifth reverb heavy, garage rock album (and first really serious foray as an independent group) the brothers will be opening for Ted Leo and the Pharmacists at the Echo on Friday.

Before their show, Jake Orrall was kind enough to talk to us from the road despite having just spent a rough night of sleeping in a van in the desert. "It was horrible. The wind shook the van like crazy and 108 degrees at night! Arizona sucks." Fortunately he survived this trauma. Here is some of what was said.
