Idle Wave To Hold Record Release Party At Asbury Park Brewery
originally published: 11/13/2018
(ASBURY PARK, NJ) -- Pop-punks Idle Wave will celebrate the release of their self-titled EP on Saturday, December 1st at Asbury Park Brewery. The record release show also includes performances by Skyeline, Roderick, and Pollyanna. The show runs from 7:00pm to 11:00pm. Admission is $10.
Developing their sound in basement shows and the Asbury Park music scene, Idle Wave combines the anthemic garage rock sound of Weezer with the hard-truth lyricism of The Wonder Years. Post grad but not dead yet
Departing from their college project Flammable Animals the boys shifted their sound from what was normally basement recordings to bigger live rooms and louder amps through the help of John Ferrara (Trophy Scars) at Portrait Recording Studios.
Not ones to shy away from touchy subjects, "You Caught Me” puts pressure on the conversation regarding guilt and false accusations, while the EP also hones in on depression and the idea of things being out of your control, but not beyond repair.
Idle Wave takes you to a place of 00’s pop-punk nostalgia while holding up a mirror of self doubt, making for a nostalgic but unmistakably current relatability. Post grad but not dead yet.

If It Ain't Baroque... Bach's Brandenburg Concertos With Symphony in C
You know the old joke: If it ain’t Baroque, don’t fix it? Well, put away those tools, dear reader. Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos ARE Baroque, so no fixing necessary.
This Saturday, December 1, Symphony in C is performing Johann Sebastian Bach’s Brandenburg Concertos Nos. 2 through 6 at the Rutgers-Camden Center for the Arts. Officially presented in 1721, these collective works are considered to be some of the finest orchestral compositions of the Baroque era (generally 1600 to 1750). These six concertos are among the most recorded, performed and beloved works by Bach. – And that’s J.S. Bach, for those of you keeping score at home. There are a LOT of Bachs.
