First/Last-Jacob Jones

May 1, 2010

Jacob is a country/folk singer from Nashville who will be playing an in-store set at Decade boutique in the Southside. He was cool enough to participate in this latest edition of First/Last.

  • The first album you ever bought?
  • I would like to say something like “Born to Run:” or “Blonde on Blonde”, but in actuality it was MC Hammer “Hammer Don’t Hurt ’em”.
  • Your last album bought?
  • Merle Travis “In Boston 1959”.
  • Favorite album of all time?
  • As far as whole albums go, “Darkness On The Edge Of Town” Bruce Springsteen.
  • Least favorite/most disappointing album?
  • All hip hop AFTER “The Chronic” came out. All pop country AFTER Garth Brooks came out.
  • First concert attended?
  • John Cougar Mellancamp, I was 8.
  • Last concert?
  • I caught some shows at SXSW, mainly Joe Pug. The last “real” concert I saw that I wasn’t a part of was Justin Townes Earle in Nashville.
  • Favorite concert ever?
  • Bruce Springsteen live in Atlanta, 2003.
  • Least favorite concert?
  • Any festivals like Bonnaroo and Coachella are usually terrible experiences.
  • Any thoughts, experiences about Pittsburgh?
  • Yes, I really like East Carson street. My friend Steve Ford owns a clothing store there called Decade. Also, Permanti Brothers might have the best drunk sandwich of all time.

Thanks Jacob. And do me a favor, please hammer, don’t hurt them! Nice!
