Summer’s almost over, but we’ve still got lots of events in September!
It’s hard to believe that the “official” summer season is almost over. Most place count Labor Day as the end of the summer, but it’s not really over until September 22nd. Here in Asbury Park, there are still plenty of events in September.
The Stone Pony Summer Stage has a full line-up for Labor Day weekend. Friday September 2nd is Almost Queen. You can’t see Queen anymore, so this is the next best thing. Stop by here and pick up a Queen tee or a Freddie pin to wear to the show! On Saturday, September 3rd, they have Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit with special guest Shemekia Copeland. On Sunday, it’s Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes to finish the weekend in true Asbury style.
But it’s not over on Labor Day! Saturday September 10th is Asbury Park Porchfest. This a wonderful little festival, with the best musicians in the area playing on porches all over the city. It’s free but donations go to support locals in need. Grab your bike and spend the afternoon gong from porch to porch. But don’t forget to stop downtown for some shopping!
September 17th & 18th is the big deal: the two day Sea.Hear.Now festival on the beach! Saturday’s headliner is the White Witch herself, Stevie Nicks. Sunday’s headliner is Green Day. Plus many more wonderful acts on 3 stages, including Boy George & Culture Club and My Morning Jacket, plus some local A.P. bands. It’s going to be great!
So don’t think Asbury Park is going to sleep just because August is over. Green Day may sing “Wake me up when September ends” but we’re rocking all month long.
