THE BLACKFIRES—New York City

One of the local bands that really piqued my interest at this year’s Rock Carnival at FirstEnergy Park in Lakewood, NJ this weekend is a New York City band called The Blackfires. I can’t understand why there isn’t more press on these guys. Where did they …

North Jersey Notes: Sunday Brave, Tommy London, The Clocktown Giants and more!
