Listen: jackbenny’s single It’s Not Cool (To Be Cool Anymore)

Artists jackbenny, formerly spotlighted on Girl Underground Music, debut their single 'It's Not Cool (To Be Cool Anymore)' about the search for individuality and recognition.

“Good evening ladies, gentlemen, and all who prefer not to identify with binary gender, and welcome to tonight’s performance by jackbenny at the Satellite. At this evening’s show, we encourage the use of your cellular phone to record and photograph, so long as you continue to engage with the world around you, and send the performers your content afterwards. Please be advised that the following will provoke a severe dose of joy, and a love of unconditional diversity. Thank you for your cooperation.Now without further ado, stand up, energize, and enjoy!”

The above introduction was written by Jack Lipson and read by their friend Maxx Vogel at the jackbenny single release party this Tuesday. Following Girl Underground Music’s coverage the event at The Satellite in Silver Lake, the single is now streaming on Soundcloud and (finally) on Spotify, even after the band was confused with the deceased comedian Jack Benny. It details the struggle for individuality and recognition in a humorous light-hearted Broadway-influenced pop tune. There is nothing that hasn’t already been said about jackbenny, so the single can speak for itself. It will, in fact, provoke a severe does of joy. Don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Likes: Lecturing on social inequalities, cats, gay bars, grilled cheese, hokey crystal stores and binge watching Forensic Files. Dislikes: Racism, hot sauce that isn't hot enough, parking tickets. Aria lives in Silver Lake, Los Angeles with her two cats and two roommates who actually own and care for the cats. She received her B.A. in Sociology from Southeastern Louisiana University and the degree itself now sits in the back of her closet gathering dust. She can usually be found haunting the Echoplex or Charles Bukowski's old hangout, the Smog Cutter. She isn't very friendly but would give you the shirt off her back if you asked, depending on which shirt it is.
