Some Under-the-Radar Shows This Weekend


As I mentioned when I put up the show listings earlier today, this is a big weekend for shows in our area with some big names. There are some interesting lower profile shows going on as well. Check the full listings carefully to see everything, but here are a few that I wanted to highlight.

Illiterate Light / Rachel Ana Dobken Band / Cranston Dean Band, The Saint, Thursday, 7/25

Carhart Presents brings Virginia's Illiterate Light to The Saint in Asbury Park on Thursday night. The duo of Jeff Gorman and Jake Cochran released Sweet Beast  at the beginning of 2019, and their sound is surprisingly expansive once you realize it's coming from a two-piece.

Joining them on the bill are Rachel Ana Dobken, who just this week released the video for her single "Always," and The Cranston Dean Band.

Drunk Mums / Dirty Fences / Tight Lipped / Sun Voyager / Smock, The Saint, Friday, 7/26

Our friends over at Little Dickman Records have put together a jam packed bill for Friday at The Saint headlined by Australia's Drunk Mums. Drunk Mums are Aussie rock influenced by The Saints, their American contemporaries, and modern garage rock. And, c'mon! They came all the way from Melbourne.

Rounding out that one are psych rockers Sun Voyager, Asbury punks Tight Lipped, NJ's tripped out Smock, and NYC rock titans Dirty Fences.

Spookey Ruben / The Red Room / Woodfish / Sister Ancestor, Red Tank Brewing, Friday, 7/26

Red Tank Brewing in Red Bank has been growing into another spot for interesting shows; and, this Friday, they'll be hosting this one. Canadian musician, producer, songwriter, and composer Spookey Ruben will be performing one-man band style. Ruben has been a cult favorite for decades and is readying a new EP featuring Mac DeMarco, Geneva Jacuzzi, and John McEntire.

Joining Ruben for this show are our friends The Red Room, Woodfish, and Sister Ancestor.

These are just a few maybe under-the-radar things coming up this weekend. Like I said, check out the full listings for everything else.
