The Jet Age Washington, D.C.

Washington, DC's the Jet Age are a critically acclaimed power-trio about whom writers say things like, "[T]he Jet Age manages to mix the hyper jangle of the Wedding Present with the cruise-control melodies of Swervedriver and the heaven-scraping majesty of the Who circa 1970" (The Onion) and "a heart-pounding rocker … all of the riffs are stellar."

Track Name: Had a Plan
Had a plan
but the plan has changed:
I wanted fire, but now I want rain.
Rain to soothe, rain to grow--
I wanted chaos but now I want control.

Don't need no one
to save my soul,
don't wanna die before I get old.
I'm just searching for a heart of gold
using space travel rock 'n' roll.

Had a plan
but the plan has changed:
I want peace to supplant this rage.
Come off the mound
and see how it feels
when you shut your mouth
and put your shoulder to the wheel.
Track Name: Soda Tower
I know a place
where you and I can go;
I know a place where we can go.
Do you remember when the summer's heat
meant we had all night for hide and seek?
I know a place where we can go.

And the sun is always gonna shine
and the night awaits our call.
And the sun is always gonna shoe
at the Soda Tower.

I'll meet you at the Soda Tower.
Do you remember our first kiss?
Well, it's ours for the taking.
Do you remember our first kiss?
Well, it still there, waiting.
