Purling Hiss (Headliner)
Purling Hiss is the rock music project of American multi-instrumentalist Mike Polizze. Based in Philadelphia, the project was named so because of its heavy use of distortion and white noise. Originally conceived for his own personal amusement and desire to experiment, Polizze eventually self-released Purling Hiss (2009) and began touring with a live band.
ECSTATIC VISION unleash UNDER THE INFLUENCE, a collection of six RAW, FUZZY, PSYCHEDELIC slabs of COSMIC ROCK. UNDER THE INFLUENCE sees the band covering tracks by some of their biggest influences; The stoner doom sounds that came out of ZAMBIA in the early/mid 70s that is known as ZAM ROCK, the godfathers of space-rock HAWKWIND, and the early kings of Detroit rock n' Roll THE MC5, all delivered with ECSTATIC VISION's signature bone crushing, blown-out in-all-the-right-ways recording style.
Local psych rock revival quartet gods is a recent offshoot of The Parlor Mob, releasing their debut EP “Endless Stunner” in early 2015. Leadoff track “New Future” builds off a forward driving snare and bass drum beat with tambourine-jingle enhancements, as guitar chord structures playfully invert The Beatles' “Ticket To Ride.”
A romantic clash between your Dad's long lost favorite psych record and the soundtrack to a John Hughes film, Heaven ride a massive sonic wave in delivering their dear and dreamy tracks. Matt Sumrow and Mikey Jones created Heaven in the wake of touring and recording with artists such as DEAN and BRITTA, SWERVEDRIVER, AMBULANCE LTD, the COMAS, SNOWDEN, THE BIG SLEEP and others. .
Psychedelic/progressive rock band from Asbury Park, New Jersey
latewaves is a rock band from Asbury Park, NJ consisting of Mikey Pellegrino (vocals, guitar) Howie Cohen (bass, vocals) and Shawna Grabowski (drums). Formed in the fall of 2016 by Pellegrino and Grabowski, the first six months were the incubating period for their debut record ",Partied Out." Drawing off influences from the quirky minor and 7th chords of 90's alt rock, and calling the angst and aggression of the early 2000's post hardcore/dawning of the emo scene; the group found their sound in the echoes of the past but brought a modern twist.
Sunday kicks off with Yoga on the Beach & Brunch at The Anchor's Bend, followed by shopping at the Asbury Park Fall Bazaar noon to 6 pm and a Reggae Party on the Beach hosted by Holdfast Records.
