I love Liv Tyler. Her stunning performance alongside Edward Norton in The Incredible Hulk was dripped with raw, human emotion…I came away believing that such a beauty could love a short tempered, chemically engineered beast of the radioactive age. And tonight, the American treasure’s mother, Bebe Buell, will grace The Saint’s patronage with her presence, while touring on the songstress’ latest full-length release Hard Love.
The members of Buell’s backing band has its roots dug in deep the soil of the Garden State as axe wielders Pete Marshall (Iggy Pop, Glenn Danzig’s Samhain) and Jimmy Walls (DGeneration, Das Damen) were born and raised in Rutherford; local record mogul (Main Man Records) and front-man of the Boardwalk-based Hard-Rock collective Frankenstein 3000, Keith Roth, acts as bass plucker, and Asbury’s own Sarah Tomek wields the sticks.
With so much of New Jersey engrained in this outfit it only makes sense that Buell and the Gang will be sandwiched between a pair of the finest female fronted Blues-Rock group’s in the state with Tara Elliott & The Red Velvets and the Jo Wymer Band.
Doors open at 9:45 p.m. with a cover charge of $15 to be paid upon entrance.
However, be sure to come out early for a special Asbury Cafe-presented acoustic coffee house starring Pittsburgh-native Bill Tomms, who performed as lead guitarist with Joe Grushecky & The House Rockers (a Bruce Springsteen favorite) for two decades.
Tomms will be supported by the local favorite Sandy Mack & Friends as well as Astronaut Jones and Pete Zanikos…Doors are at 6 p.m. with a $12 cover. Come check it out.
