The Jakes, at least to its members, started its life as a joke band. A combination of positive audience feedback, receiving airplay for their song “Cough Syrup” and winning the UCI’s Battle of the Bands in the aughts proved the then-post-hardcore band was no farce. The band now known as Young the Giant has put 3 albums and 13 years under their belt, now are returning to their hometown of Irvine to support their latest record, aptly titled Home of The Strange. The album has undercurrents of different genres while still maintaining the core of Young the Giant at its heart. The lead single “Amerika” takes on alienation with upbeat indie rock precision. Opening the show will be Long Beach’s Cold War Kids and Sir Sly.
