The Final Friday in September will officially usher out the Summer season with one final artistic hurrah…an independent music festival of epic proportions, All Tomorrow’s Parties presents I’ll Be Your Mirror, that will take over the seaside haven we call home, the mecca of New Jersey music…Asbury Park.

Shepard Fairey – DJ & Artist
Knowing Is Half The Battle:
- In 1989, Fairey created the sticker campaign “Andre The Giant Has A Posse,” which later evolved into “Obey Giant,” and was heavily distributed within skater communities. The tag line doesn’t have any true meaning as it is meant to cause folks to question their surroundings.

- In underground dane clubs Fairey goes by the aliases DJ Diabetic and Emcee Insulin…you’ll get to meet all three of them on September 30th.
