SIMGE is proud to present Asbury’s own The Drive Home, the Hub City-centered Lost Romance, and the Boardwalk-based Michael Jackson & The Beatles on November 8th at The Berkeley Hotel on the storied Asbury Park beachfront.
Lost Romance is in from New Brunswick and will grace The Berkeley’s gilded stage with a set of ’90s Alt-Rock inspired selections that have been a favorite amongst Hub City basement dwellers since 2010. This performance will front an 11-date tour in support of the group’s latest EP The Light And The Dark, including select stops with SIMGE favorite Those Mockingbirds, kicking in mid-November and running through December 11th at 10th Street Live In Kennilworth, NJ.
The Drive Home is transforming into a staple of the Asbury Park music community, featuring a cast of seasoned players from the Boardwalk scene, including The Amboys renowned frontman C.M. Smith, taking influence from likes of Spoon, Wilco, and The Decmberists, and making it a sound all their own.
Michael Jackson & The Beatles, which features former members of the lauded local Stoner-Rock outfit Gimme Drugs, including frontman Jesse Skokos, recently debuted at Asbury Lanes in direct support of Brick+Mortar and frightened the hell out of those patrons in search of bass-laden electro-rock…we had to have em.
Doors for the free, all ages event, will open at 8:30 p.m. (though it is a restaurant and bar in the day so no one will turn you away if you show early for the party) with music expected to start at 9 p.m.
RSVP to the event here and Come join us for a wonderful night of music, drinks, and of course a billiards tournament…because the SIMGE staff is full of pool sharks.
