Jamuel Saxon returns for one night only

Band playing one-off reunion show at Soda Bar

Jamuel Saxon are returning to San Diego for one encore performance. The band, which began as a solo project by Keith Milgaten in 2005 and ended last year when he moved to Brooklyn, has scheduled a surprise reunion show at Soda Bar on March 17.

The show is only a one-off—Milgaten says he doesn't have any further plans to bring back Jamuel Saxon, since he's busy with his Keith Sweaty project, as well as a variety of jobs doing sound in clubs in New York City. However, a chance opportunity touring with synth-pop group Small Black led to the opportunity to bring back his old band—as a duo—for a single show. 

"I realized I had four days off of a tour doing sound for Small Black," Milgaten tells CityBeat. "And during that middle break in the tour, we're in San Diego, so I wanted to figure out some ways to be more musical to occupy my time.

"The show will just be me and Jayson [Ehm, drummer]," he continues. "It'll be cool to just take a time warp and play all of our songs that people loved."

Milgaten moved to New York last April, but despite seeking out new opportunities on the other side of the country, he still expresses his fondness for San Diego. He says the show—Mirror Pop, The Spark Three, Office Twins and Third Twin DJs will also perform—is intended to be an offering of gratitude to fans who supported the band while it was active.

"I feel like a lot of people leave San Diego and say, 'Fuck San Diego.' But I don't feel that way," he says. "I have friends and family in San Diego, and I'm very thankful" for the experience.

"Doing this show is a way to say thank you, and hopefully bring people together."
