Catch two awesome indie bands on one night at one of the best live music venues in Atlantic City, just steps from the boardwalk. Philly’s indie pop band Miss Cantaloupe and NJ’s indie garage rock band Molly Ringworm will be tearing it up as part of the North2Shore Festival. Expect fuzzy guitars, theatrical performances, and a whole lot of attitude. This is Jersey, after all.
Few bands on the scene exhibit the level of energy, swagger and skill of Low Cut Connie. It should come as no surprise that the band has plenty of adoring fans, including Bruce Springsteen, Barack Obama, Elton John and Nick Hornsby. Not too shabby.
Since hitting the scene, Low Cut Connie has established a reputation as one of THE most exciting live shows around, with Los Angeles Weekly describing their performances as “unmatched in all of rock right now.” Songwriter and frontman Adam Weiner’s songwriting is equally impressive, with Rolling Stone describing it as “Seventies Stones (but dirtier), the New York Dolls (but tighter) and Jerry Lee Lewis (but Westerberg-ier).”
The band’s shined on such storied stages as the Newport Folk Festival, Bonnaroo and Pickathon, and has also been featured on Elton John’s radio show Rocket Hour. This band leaves other acts in the dust. North to Shore Entertainment at Stockton University | 3711 Atlantic Avenue Atlantic City, NJ 08401
