the band in Heaven is a perfect formula of sludgy, psych rock combined with dreamy, shoegaze melodies. Imagine The Black Angels, The Brian Jonestown Massacre and Slowdive meeting somewhere in outer space” – GetBent

“An obnoxious, ungainly mess of fuzzy shoegaze, dreampop, and psychedelic blow-out rock. The perfect teenage soundtrack for guzzling a box of wine and falling down the cellar stairs. I don’t even know if they have a record. They don’t even need a record. They can get by on pills and Youtube, I’m sure of it. (K)” – Advanced Demonology

So… the band in Heaven is playing their final show. A reunion show of sorts since they haven’t actually been active for the past few years. Jay T is moving away. To Colorado. This is a band we were lucky to have around and I’m fortunate to have seen and booked a number of their shows. They always did some cool shit and put on some great shows. They toured a bit (see below). Dropped some mean video and records. I miss them. They were definitely one of my favorite South Florida bands. ~ sr

Don’t miss them when they play All bands go to Heaven on Thursday, Feb 9 at Respectable Street for Flaunt. They will be giving out “lots of free band in Heaven stuff”.
