Check out this pretty cool article on Five Iron Frenzy over at Relevant Magazine. “Among those speculating was Leanor Ortega—known to Five Iron fans as “Jeff the Girl,” the band’s lone female and saxophonist. When she was at alternative Christian music shindig Cornerstone, she was approached by fans who asked if there was any truth to the rumors. “She thought she was talking off-the-record,” Roper says. “She was like, ‘Yeah, we talk about it quite a bit. We’re thinking about it, maybe.’ And it got printed on some guy’s blog that we were getting back together.” Hmm, I wonder who’s “blog” that happened to be? Speaking of Five Iron Frenzy, they recently played a few NEW songs live at their NYE show, two of which you can check out below. Thoughts?
