Tango Machina @ The Stone Pony

Tango Machina will play The Brighton Bar in Long Branch on November 19th with Tara Elliott & The Red Velvets, and The World Famous Skulls.  Doors at 9 p.m. and it’ll end whenever the carnage becomes too much to stomach…sometime around 2 a.m. probably.

Dave Roberts

The question that’s plagued the Garden State for the past few months: Who is Dave Roberts?  Find out for yourself on November 16th at The Wonder Bar.  In the mean time, Christmas done come early this year:

“Man In The Garden (feat. George Carlin)” by Dave Roberts


Ce-Loo-Green has covered a cut off Kings of Leon’s new album Come Around Sundown.  Have a Listen to Green’s rendition of “Radioactive.”

Good Ol War

Good Ol War has released a video for its song “That’s Some Dream” off the band’s 2010 album Only Way To Be Alone.


Quincey Mumford

This music video for “Lifted” by Allenhurst’s Quincey Mumford and the Reason Why was brought to my attention this afternoon.  Check it out.

While watching the video above, this gem fell into my lap.  A Starland Ballroom audience boos the cast of Jersey Shore off the stage, and Mumford finished the job.

You can catch Quincey Mumford and the Reason Why at the 2010 Asbury Music Awards on November 13th.  Mumford is back again at the awards ceremony after winning Song of The Year, Best Local Release, and Top Male Performer at the 2009 Asbury Music Awards.

Listen to the album in its entirety streaming on the band’s Myspace page.

TCNJ will host its Winter Concert on November 20th featuring All Time Low, Mute Math, and Plain White T’s.  Hopefully Senses Fail’s Buddy Nielsen doesn’t get wind of the show or their might be a fight.

In a recent interview with Punknews.org Nielsen said “A band like All Time Low should have no business being associated with a band like Senses Fail, but they are. There’s no similarity whatsoever in everything that we do. The Maine might as well be Matchbox 20. All Time Low might as well be Mickey Mouse Club. I like All Time Low, by the way. I do actually like them. I just like making fun of them. They did it to themselves. They could have been a fucking real band, but they decided to play the game, which is good, but the game never works.”

Nielsen explains his comments further in this interview with Bryan Stars.

Flogging Molly

Flogging Molly is back in the studio recording its next full length album, due out sometime in the first six months of 2011.  Read more details here.

Frank Turner

Watch Frank Turner cover NOFX’s “Linoleum” with the Punk Sultan that wrote it, Fat Mike, from last night.

My favorite cover of this song was released this year by Streetlight Manifesto on the band’s 99 Songs Of Revolution Vol. 1 covers album.  Check it out, even download it if you’d like, it is my gift to you.

Check out Frank Turner this Friday at The Stone Pony with Social Distortion and Lucero.
