Anyway, this has some of the greatest bands New Jersey has ever seen, all we ask is that you come to party.
Doors at 7! Music at 7:30. Lineup: Jean Pool, Twisted Psychedelic blues punk rock jamming in celebration of the new album; ManDancing, Vocals of an angel surrounded by a band of clean cut gentleman.

The precision will cleanse your soul; Electric Sensei, If New Jersey had a desert and you took Peyote while in that desert while being guided by a didgeridoo weilding shaman who just tied you to an electric chair of pleasure; Tula Vera, Somebody took a time machine back 40-50 years and stole these kids from a rocknroll experimentation lab and formed this band in present day; Will Wood, Prince of the Underworld.

Join Liv Lombardi for an intimate evening of storytelling and live music. This event will be a fundraiser and launch party for her crowd-funding campaign. In July, Liv is moving into a HUGE recording & touring project & needs your help! Additionally, Liv has teamed up with YES (a montclair based nonprofit) in order to raise awareness for shame free, consent based sexuality education. Join us as Liv catapults into another adventure & help her make it all happen! And support an amazing, fledgling local organization that is empowering youth from kindergarten to high school. Community is about sharing and building one another up. It’s about creating spaces to grow together. Empowerment comes from the places we feel safe enough to rise above. It takes a village sometimes to tell the truth and forge ahead into authenticity.
