Spotlights – Lowlight, Beach Slang & More

Lowlight To Show Their Skill At Count Basie Theatre
  Independent bands don’t get any better than this. Lowlight is a Jersey based band with so much heart and soul to give, that Chrissie Hynde herself plucked them to open for her on tour. Going on tour with The Pretenders is already a highlight in Lowlight’s career, but there is surely more to come from this unique, superbly talented synth-pop group. To catch them (and The Pretenders!) on tour, keep March 30 open for their show in Red Bank. For more information, visit

Hey Brooklyn! Here Come The Shacks
  With a deep, personal approach to songwriting, and an idea of rock music that turns heads, this New York based band is beyond ready to show the new generation what real, honest music sounds like. Their sound is raw and so special as they take soft, whispery steps into the psychedelic pop scene, it might be hard to miss them. Although, you can’t judge a book by its cover or a band by their reputation. This group goes from heavenly romantic, to doo-wop, to R&B laced funk in one album. That, to me, is a band that will be taking the world by storm. To hear them perform this new LP live, head over to Baby’s All Right on April 4. Get your tickets at

Beach Slang Heads To The Shore
  New Jersey’s favorite, and arguably most iconic venue, is to host two stellar bands in one night — and it can’t be missed. Indie punk rockers Beach Slang are taking their creative, Philly-based sound  currently on tour with Dashboard Confessional, Chris Carrabba’s exemplary and newly revived rock band. Both bands are going full force into this tour as they take their fans on a beautiful, live music journey. For tickets for their show at The Stone Pony on April 2, go to
