After weeks of anticipation, here we are at the final lineups announcement for the Second Annual North Jersey Indie Rock Festival, which will be on September 23, at Cathedral Hall in Jersey City. Fourteen bands have already been announced from Mint 400 Records and Sniffling Indie Kids. As if that wasn’t enough, here are ten more bands from Bar None Records, Killing Horse Records, and Little Dickman Records.
State Champion Records has bolstered their already impressive lineup with the addition of Glazer, longtime stalwarts of the New Brunswick DIY scene. The band has been described as anything from post-pop to grunge, post hardcore to newgaze, which, if such contrasting descriptions mean anything at all, should speak to the truly original sound they have created.
N.J. Racket is thrilled to present the second installment of the North Jersey Indie Rock Festival Lineup Announcement. Last week, we released the full lineup of artists from festival co-founder, Sniffling Indie Kids, which consisted of Adam and the Plants, Delicate Flowers, LKFFCT, Quality Living, Rocky and the Chapter, Shred Flintstone, and Spowder. Now, we present the lineup from the remaining festival co-founder, Mint 400 Records.
The time has come to announce the first group of bands for The North Jersey Indie Rock Festival set for September 23 at Cathedral Hall in Jersey City. We have already given you the two sponsors for the event, Jonathan LeVine Projects and, your’s truly, N.J. Racket. Now, we present the lineup of bands from, festival co-founder, Sniffling Indie Kids:
State Champion Records celebrated their label’s launch with a show at WFMU’s Monty Hall on July 9, and goddamn do they know how to throw a party! The show featured a stacked lineup of local favorites Spowder, Snakeskin, and Decoration. State Champion Records has only been in existence since April of this year, and they’ve wasted absolutely no time making a major impact on the local scene.
N.J. Racket is beyond honored to announce that Jersey City’s own Jonathan LeVine Projects will be a sponsor of Mint 400 Records and Sniffling Indie Kids’ Second Annual North Jersey Indie Rock Festival. Owner and proprietor Jonathan LeVine is known internationally as one of the pioneers of the street art movement in the early 2000s, and his gallery is considered to be one of the premiere galleries in the world for transgressive and subversive pop surrealism.
