The Rise and Fall of Jamaica. - Oh My Rockness

Band We Like

The Rise and Fall of Jamaica.

April 11, 2011
Most music videos that are "funny" aren't really that funny. Jamaica's "I Think I Like U 2" video is the exception. That video is funny. It chronicles the Paris pop duo's rise (and fall) to superstardom as they take over the world with their catchy choruses. It's all tongue-in-cheek of course, since no one has ever really heard of Jamaica. Yet.

But these two dudes better be careful about what they're making fun of, because with sticky pop songs like the ones they've been cranking out, this band very well might take over the world. At the very least, the radio waves.

If you like Phoenix, you will certainly like Jamaica. If you don't like Phoenix, you're weird. Who doesn't like Phoenix? What, you don't like happiness?

Anyway, go see this band sooner rather than later. You don't have too much longer to see someone like Phoenix at Jamaica prices. And oh yeah, Jamaica don't play reggae.

Jamaica play Knitting Factory, on Thursday, April 14th, at Mercury Lounge, on Friday, April 15th, and a Kidrockers show at The Living Room, on Saturday, April 16th.
