What's Going On: 1/11, 1/12, 1/13 & 1/14, 2018

Dentist help to kick off Light of Day 2018 at The Saint on Thursday.

Happy Birthday to Me

Completion of another trip around the sun for CoolPoppy and me this weekend. He celebrates a big one on Friday, and I just get a year older on Saturday. Sharing birthday cake since 1970. It's also Light of Day 2018 weekend in Asbury, so there are a whole bunch of shows centered around that and the fight against Parkinson's disease.

Things kick off with the weekly open mic at The Asbury. House of Independents hosts one of the Light of Day opening parties with Bobby Bandiera paying tribute to Tom Petty with help from Dramarama. Clouded Filter, Jack Names The Planets, and Tony Saxon are at Debonair Music Hall in Teaneck. The Nude Party play NYC's Mercury Lounge with Insecure Men and ZZZWalk. A Deer A Horse are at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn with Pop. 1280, Dad, and Irrevery. Philly's Purling Hiss play Sunnyvale with Mike Donovan, Long Hots, and Justin Frye & Greg Fox. Light of Day's "First Note" happens at The Saint with Lemats, The Double Negatives, Zaritza, JAHK, Just Six Hours, and our BFFs Dentist.

On Friday, it's CoolPoppy's 70th! Off With Their Heads bring their acoustic tour with Stacey Dee and Seth Anderson to Asbury Park Brewery. Also on that one are Mikey Erg, Nervous Triggers and Brook Pridemore with comedy from Jess Alaimo, Taylor Allen, and more. American Trappist return to APYC with Jesse Lee and The Cranston Dean Band. Darkwing, The Smirks, Mean Siders, and Plaid Dracula are at Brooklyn's Gutter Bar. Finding Feebas, Brian Rothenbeck & The Adventuring Party, and The Vaughns celebrate Feebas's single release at Pino's in Highland Park. Finn Wolfhard's Calpurnia play Rough Trade in Brooklyn. It's the annual Light of Day Asbury Angels induction at The Stone Pony.

Saturday is my natal anniversary. Not sure where I'll be celebrating yet. The Moms, American Lions, Weakened Friends, and Well Wisher play AP Brewery. Light of Day brings "Women Who Rock" to APYC featuring Pamela Flores, Lauren Patti, MACK, Tara Dente, and Renee Maskin. Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank hosts a tribute to Pat DiNizio with The Smithereens, Steven Van Zandt, and Patty Smyth and Scandal. Murphy's Law are at Crossroads in Garwood with Iron Chic, Doc Hopper, Nine Eighteen, and Damage Done. Asbury Underground takes over downtown Asbury again with sets at just about anyplace that can host them all afternoon. Spowder, GNäRDS, and Exmaid play In The West in New Brunswick. The Saint hosts three different Light of Day shows starting at 12noon. It's "Tacomania" at The Stone Pony featuring Ropetree, Mirk, and Funeral Students. Light of Day's Main Event happens at The Paramount in Asbury, and you never know...

On Sunday, MACK, Lauren Patti, Ella Ross, and Dave Melillo are at the brewery. Two Inch Astronaut, Fern Mayo, Baglady, and Shred Flintstone play Brooklyn Bazaar. Brian Fallon does a sold-out solo show at the Basie. Wild Honey, Big Bliss, Hypoluxo, and Fruit & Flowers make up a fantastic bill at Elsewhere's Zone One in Brooklyn. Off With Their Heads make their way to Trenton's Millhill Basement with Stacey Dee, Seth Anderson, Sammy Kay, and Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken.

Plenty to do after a bit of winter hibernation. Happy birthday to my dad. Have fun, everyone. Don't drink and drive.
