Last week the initial lineup for the 21st Asbury Music Awards was unveiled and said to include The Black Jesuses, Wreaths, Empire Escorts, The Battery Electric, and many more local luminaries. However, the door was left open by promoters for lineup additions and those came early Sunday morning as it was announced that River City Extension front-man Joe Michelini would be collaborating in some form with the burgeoning Neo-Folk collective Harper’s Fellow, while Colts Neck songstress Alex English and the Monmouth County youngsters Ardvark Smile would be rounding out the bill.
The 21st Asbury Music Awards will be held on Thursday, December 12th at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park and hosted by 90.5 The Night’s Jeff Raspe with opening remarks by local Solo-Punk and comedic mastermind Taylor Allen. Doors for the event open at 6 p.m. with festivities expected to kick off at 6:30 p.m. Tickets for the gala are $15 in advance and $20 day of show and can be purchased at The Stone Pony Box Office.
Check out the full lineup and all other information on the poster below and stay tuned for the official nominee list.
