‘I Like You Weird’ — Another Nomination for JP’s Anthem

Love Love, a Boston band with JP ties, is debuting the video for their song "I Like You Weird" here on Jamaica Plain News. The tune's a candidate for neighborhood anthem. Take a look and listen at the embedded video and see if it doesn't have a JP vibe. In addition to the sentiment of the song itself being very JP, the video includes shots from The Midway Cafe and the Pond. The band includes JP singer/songwriter Chris Toppin, who also teaches music in the neighborhood and coaches at Girls Rock Camp, which is mostly based out of Spontaneous Celebrations.

Neighborhood Vibe Rules Hot, Storm-Shortened JP Music Festival

The 2014 edition of the Jamaica Plain Music Festival is in the books. Residents thronged Pinebank Field despite high temps of 91 and a fast-moving storm that caused organizers to shut down the festival slightly early. The last two acts weren't able to perform. Here are a few photos of the big day:
