The ridiculously named Northbound Traveling Minstrel Jug Band is doubtlessly one of the best student bands at S.U. today

Crowded on the floor in front of the stage, perched on a pool table toward the back of the room and huddled haphazardly around a series of small cafe tables, over 40 students crammed into the Jabberwocky Cafe last night to get a glimpse of three up-and-coming student bands.

The University Union-sponsored performance was the first in a new series, called “Artists on the Brink,” which U.U. hopes to hold biweekly in the intimate Schine venue.  Singer-songwriters Stephen Babcock and Jason Steklof opened, while the Northbound Traveling Minstrel Jug Band — doubtlessly one of the best acts on campus right now — closed out the evening with a series of driven, down-home folk-rock numbers.

NTMJB, if you’re reading this, 20 Watts wants you to play our launch show.  For real.  In the mean time, catch the band at Funk ‘n’ Waffles, or join the UUInsider group on Facebook for alerts on campus concerts like this one.
