What's Going On: 3/5, 3/6, 3/7 & 3/8, 2020

Double the fun on our Anniversary Weekend

8 Years of CoolDad Music!!!

Today is the 8th Anniversary of the first-ever post at CoolDad Music. Running this site (especially putting together this calendar every week!) has felt like a burden at times; but, mostly, it's helped me to find my place in the world. It's gotten me through some very tough times, and it's introduced me to some of the most important people in my life outside of my family. Thanks for sticking with me all these years.

CoolDad Music is helping to bring you two shows this weekend. On Friday, we've got Fascinations Grand Chorus, Deaglan Howlett, and Natalie Newbold at The Asbury. On Saturday, we joined up with The Saint and Little Dickman Records to bring you Heart Bones, Real Dominic, Dentist, and Lowlight. Taken together, both of these shows bring together lots of those "most important people" I referenced above; and it would be great to see you all at one or both of them.

Other cool stuff this weekend includes Heart Bones down in Philly at Johnny Brenda's, Control Top at Brooklyn's Union Pool, and another Jersey Rock Showcase at Wonder Bar on Thursday. On Friday, Control Top are at Saint Vitus in Brooklyn with Dry Cleaning. Vanessa Silberman, Catty, Kino Kimino, and Janet LaBelle play Our Wicked Lady. Joshua Mark plays an album release show at the Clinch Gallery. Saturday brings Destroyer to Brooklyn Steel. Exmaid play their record release show at In The West in New Brunswick with SHUT UP, Joy Cleaner, and Toads. The Foes Of Fern, The Extensions, Dead Flowers, Honey Wild, and Cat London are at Wonder Bar. On Sunday, it's The Asbury Park Saint Paddy's Day Parade with an after party at Wonder Bar.

It would be a really cool anniversary present if you came to The Asbury on Friday or to The Saint on Saturday. Another really super cool anniversary present would be if you promised not to drink and drive this weekend.

Love ya.
