Jared Putnam lives near the Bosque in one of Albuquerque’s oldest neighborhoods, Barelas. He lives in an old house with Pyragraph stalwart Sage Harrington and his two kids Jack and Claire. Jared plays an upright bass equipped with strings made from the eviscerated intestines of a cow. He also enjoys playing his Gretsch resonator guitar and his ukulele.
He plays in the band Le Chat Lunatique. They specialize in filthy, mangy jazz and awkward silence between each song. He and Sage also have a group called Sage and Jared’s Happy Gland Band. They are cute together. Jared also plays silly songs for preschool kids. He can also be seen pulling cans to the fronts of shelves at Whole Foods.
