Rocking The Sea Hear Now Festival In Asbury Park on 9/30!

The Sea Hear Now Festival is coming to Asbury Park this weekend!  On 9/29 and 9/30 it will take over the area surrounding Convention Hall, with 2 stages on the beach and vendors lining Ocean Avenue and Bradley Park.  The 2 day event will feature surfing, yoga, and a lot of music, bringing international acts like Incubus, Blondie, Social Distortion and Jack Johnson together with a number of great local artists.  Jersey Rockers performing include The Front Bottoms, Nicole Atkins, The Battery Electric and this week’s video of the week band Deal Casino. The Sea Hear Now Festival is co-produced by famed local photographer Danny Clinch.

Deal Casino hits the festival on Sunday 9/30.  The band easily has one of the most unique sounds on the Jersey Rock scene with a stage show to match.  Catch them live and you’ll see a lot of energy surrounded by a plethora of cool things you might not expect to find on a concert stage in 2018.  

Deal Casino’s Isadora Duncan EP is out now.  It’s the latest in a seemingly constant stream of releases.  The group can’t seem to keep their creativity bottled up and we’re not complaining.  You can score a copy of the EP now at dealcasino.com. While you’re there download the band’s latest single “French Blonde.”

Back in March Deal Casino entered NPR’s Tiny Desk Contest, which, as its title suggests, challenges bands to produce a music video with a tiny desk each year.  Deal Casino produced an awesome entry, done in one take. It not only featured a tiny desk, but a well-behaved dog named Boomer. It’s similar to the band’s “Calidus” video, but is just a bit cozier.  It was filmed by Cody Cutter.

Check out the video for “French Blonde”:
