BLEACHERS’ JACK ANTONOFF announced today that the first-ever “Shadow Of The City” music festival will be held at THE STONE PONEY SUMMERSTAGE in ASBURY PARK, NJ on SEPTEMBER 19th.
BLEACHERS will headline the festival, which will include CHARLI XCX, VIC MENSA, MISERWIVES, CULTS, HOW TO DRESS WELL, ROBERT DELONG and local JERSEY band THE FRONT BOTTOMS.
Tickets will be available for sale FRIDAY, JUNE 12th at 10a local time at www.Shadowofthe.city.
ANTONOFF commented: "I believe in music festivals deeply. In a time when everyone is so uncertain of how people should buy, stream and find their music, live music feels more important than ever. I've spent almost my entire life in NEW JERSEY and there is a hope and anthemic quality that is in the music born there that comes directly from being in the shadows of one of the greatest cities in the world. It's forever a shitty younger brother. Growing up in NJ I didn't understand how incredible this was. It's not till later in life that I realize it is at the core of who I am. Someone who grew up in the shadow of the city and always felt less than and used music to create something bigger. I want to do this festival for the rest of my life and am so proud of its inaugural year."
ANTONOFF also recently announced the original docu-series “Thank You And Sorry,” which features JACK as he navigates the bizarre world of touring and life on the road with his latest musical endeavor. The series will debut exclusively on GOOGLE PLAY and will be released in full on JUNE 16th (see trailer below)
