“Back in high school,” expressed Matt Sweeney, front-man of the recently revitalized Sludge-Rock outfit Chavez, “my friends and I used to come down to Asbury to freak out…one time we even took some disturbing naked photos together in photo booth, right outside this room.”

Sweeney and Chavez impressed because they were real.  It’s a band composed of four guys who appear to have just gotten off the job welding bolts into a bridge somewhere in South Amboy, and decided to relieve all the stress by playing a rock show…Sweeney also happens to be good friends with Dave Grohl, so that last situation I concocted isn’t remotely true.  However, Chavez gives that impression, and it was fun to watch.”
