Jacuzzi Boys' Video Disptaches From European Tour (WATCH)

Posted: Updated:

Europe is currently getting schooled on the sonic interpretation of the Everglades and Dadeland Mall by none other than Miami's trio of acclaimed garage rockers, the Jacuzzi Boys.

Following their three shows at South by Southwest and their release of "Glazin," the Jacuzzi Boys recently set sail on a 26-city European tour from England to Germany.

They spent March in the U.K., opening their tour with a show at Schacklewell Sessions in London. See a comic-style review of the show here.

And now that the band is crossing the English Channel to mainland Europe, two video dispatches from Euro fans give us a picture of how the Glazin' tour is going so far.

In the video below, Danny Gonzalez, Gabriel Alcala, Diego Monasterios boast that they got even the stoic crowds of London to dance.

And when describing their latest album, their metaphor of Dadeland Mall doesn't quite translate for the Scottish host, who mistakenly thinks they mean "polished." Not quite!

The Jacuzzi Boys have six shows left on their tour, hitting Paris, Nantes, La Rochelle, Madrid, Barcelona, before finishing in Bourges, France.

Although the band recorded their latest album in Michigan and is currently getting paid in Euros, there's not much risk that the Jacuzzi Boys will leave Miami for rockier pastures anytime soon.

"The Gun Club and X are so L.A., and Television is so New York,” says Gonzalez. “It’s such a part of what makes them who they are, you know? I always wanted to have a band like that, birthed from its environment.”

With a womb-like practice space tucked inside a trailer in Key Biscayne's Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park, the Jacuzzi Boys are set to deliver Miami's rock reputation near and far.
