We’ve been hearing from more and more friends and readers that they’d like to know where we’re going each week so they can join us.  We get invited to events, hear about fun exhibits and are interested in lots of different places all the time.  Here’s what is on our radar this week. We’re on vacation this week so here are events that we’ll miss and you can help us out by attending for us!  Support local arts and get outside and do something.

Sunday, August 7th at 7pm, McGinley Square Pub, Jersey City
Puppy Grease (Greasy three chord unmelodic narratives from Jackson, NJ!), Anthony Carrera Music (Multi-instrumentalism!), Aquino (Tales from urban, suburban and intergalactic landscapes!).
Darren Deicide, Hunterdon Brewing Company, and McGinley Square Pub present “Hokum!”, a monthly showcase featuring original neo-Americana music in a unique setting. “Hokum!” takes place the first Sunday of every month in the back room of McGinley Square Pub, an intimate environment without a PA system. Music will include touring acts as well as locals. Unique and formal attire is encouraged. There is a suggested minimum donation of $5 that goes to the artists.
McGinley Square Pub, located at 755 Montgomery St. in Jersey City, was formerly operated under the same name. Prior to that it was named after the Orson Welles’ film “Citizen Kane.” McGinley Square Pub was saved from abandonment and reopened in May 2015 as a local craft beer bar. “McGinley Square Pub, which makes a point not to offer major name beer brands, instead opts to spotlight local brewers like 902 Brewing Co. based in Hoboken”, reports The Jersey Journal. The owner draws inspiration from one of the pub’s mottos: “No Wi-Fi: Talk to each other.”
Wednesday, August 10th at 8pm, The Asbury Hotel, Asbury Park
Thomas Wesley Stern and The Asbury Hotel are presenting a VERY special night of new music. The boys in Thomas Wesley Stern will be presenting their two side projects: Laketon (Gary, Bobby, and Matt from Mad Feather Group) and Joe Mack & James Black. Expect some smooth indie rock from the former and some soulful singer-songwriter/country blues from the latter. Perhaps some TWS songs will appear as well. This is a one-off, and the first time we’re presenting new music in this way, so it’s VERY special to us.
Come on out, no cover for a very intimate night of lyrically driven songs. Doors at 8, Music at 9
