Jetpack May 2016 Show Dates

Submitted by Jetpack on April 21, 2016.
Show Announcements

After seeing the HBSM pier show flyer posted today we thought we may as well post the flyer we have up on our site with other shows in May that we are also playing. The car museum convention/show listed is open to the public so you have the option of seeing the girls and guys of Jetpack for four hours(!) if you feel our set at the pier may not be enough for you. (The Cinema Bar is a more reasonable 2 1/2.)
Introduce yourselves in person if you attend any of these!

South Creek Instrument and Audio Cables

Submitted by WaimeaBay on April 05, 2016.

If you are looking for amazing quality cables for live performance and recording you need to look no further. These cables are fantastic. Copper grading, gold plated, with a variety of sizes and angles for all your cable needs. I know they're just cables, but I can't say enough good things about them. I discovered them on Scott Grove's Youtube channel and I was hooked. I Redid my entire rig in nothing but cables from South Creek Audio .

Check out his review:

South Creek's website:

They do nothing but cables and are not paying me a dime. I can't see myself using anything besides them for the rest of my guitar life.
