Love movies? Love music? Love the Jersey Shore? Head to Asbury Park for the First Annual Asbury Park Music in Film Festival this weekend.
It starts Friday night with documentaries in the Paramount Theatre and Asbury Lanes including “Salad Days: A Decade of Punk in Washington DC” and “Do You Remember? 15 Years of The Bouncing Souls.” There’s music from Robby Krieger of The Doors at the Stone Pony and local bands playing music from their favorite soundtracks at the Wonder Bar. We can’t wait to hear some of our favorite NJ bands cover cool movie tunes.
Saturday’s the busiest day at the Festival. There are workshops and panels on screenwriting, music journalism and music videos. There are more than 20 films playing all over the city! And, there are three concerts that night to round out the full day of entertainment.
Sunday there will be a few more films and an awards ceremony/brunch.
