Kinda Like A Rolling Stone: Mick Jagger’s kid has a punk band and it plays Great Scott on Thursday


Allston rock club Great Scott is known for many things in this city, most of them good (hence their nomination for Best Live Music Venue in the 2014 BMAs). But its stage has also weirdly become a haven for offspring of rock and roll royalty, from John Lennon’s son Sean to Billy Joel’s daughter Alexa Ray and groups like TAB The Band (spawn of Aerosmith’s Joe Perry) and Big Nils (Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon’s daughter’s band).

This Thursday night they add to their kids-bop Hall of Fame with Turbogeist, a London punk band fronted by Mick Jagger’s son, James.

And they sound nothing like the Rolling Stones.


James Jagger is the second of Mick’s four kids with Jerry Hall, and though he’s modeled and acted a bit, it seems that music is what truly …starts him up.

Before Turbogeist headline their Allston bill Thursday (October 9) with Boston’s Harris Hawk and J/Q, we figured we’d take the band out for a test drive. Check out a Fuse feature on Turbogeist here, listen to their 2013 EP Ancient Secrets here (choice song titles include “Mermaid’s Revenge” and “Zero Friends”) and fire up a few videos below…
