    The perfect band for the later hours of the day, Jaguar Love brought a sweat educing fit of electro, glam, and punk, all smashing together in one combustible cloud of alarming rock and roll, to the Scoot Inn's outdoor stage when we hosted them at our 2010 SXSW Day Party. Electricity, passion, wild emotion: the Portland trio always harness a certain sort of energy, whipping it about the room like some unruly, nearly off the tracks roller coaster. In the front seat there's Jonny Whitney, flailing about (looking ma! no hands!) , his exaggerated falsetto obviously leading the way. But guitarist Cody Votolato and drummer Zach Richards are also right behind him, creating a robust sense of drama and exciting flamboyancy as they work their way through this tidy, 30 minute set. As a result, bodies - the band's and the audiences' alike - do whatever the hell it is they want to do. We suggest watching with no hands on the keyboard. - David Pitz
