Jagwar Ma: The Reunion
Since it was created, Side Stage Collective has had the pleasure of interviewing the most incredible bands. Sometimes we’re even lucky enough to see and interview them again. Here’s the reunion with our friends Jagwar Ma at NOS Alive.So...2014 was the year we met the Australian band, Jagwar Ma.
We literally (not really) "went and saved them" (reference right here). After we arrived to their green room, Joana had the opportunity of choosing ANY birthday gift she wanted, from what they had in their fridge. My "gift" was the chance of taking some band photos while the guys were having a pretty intimate moment with… hangers. Don’t judge. Love is Love.
TWO years later, the band came back to Portugal to play at NOS Alive and Side Stage Collective went to meet up with them so we could repeat some moments from our meeting in 2014. Unfortunately there were no hangers around. Jono has a different hair colour, Jack has "better" dance moves and Gabriel kept on being one of the nicest guys we ever had the opportunity to meet. During these two years, Side Stage has been changing a lot and even became international while Jagwar Ma has been touring with small, uninteresting, trivial bands like Tame Impala (if you didn't get it, it was sarcasm), recording the new album and travelling around the world. These have been the most two exciting years of our lives and we want to share the next adventures and meetings with these amazing guys with you.
Every Now and Then will be out this autumn and they will be touring the world (again!) pretty soon! Stay Tuned! Listen to their new single "O B 1" here:
