Jesse Washington was one of the first Screamo/Grindcore bands I saw live at the Alley in Miami when I was like 15, along with others like Adore Miridia, Tunes For Bears To Dance To, An Albatross, Daughters and Tyranny of Shaw. I was pretty fortunate to come into the scene at the right time and be able to catch a number of these bands live a few times before they broke up. Jesse Washington was definitely one of my favorites and I still have some pretty fond memories of their shows. (I’m somewhere in that picture above - it’s from one of the last Alley shows) They’re from Melbourne, Florida, where I grew up, and they are pretty fucking hectic. If you like real screamo, you’ll be into this shit for sure.
