The Voice of Yes: Jon Anderson LIVE! at Ocean City Music Pier
By Spotlight Central
It’s a gorgeous Monday, July 29, 2019 evening on the boardwalk in Ocean City, NJ, where music fans are lining up for a live Ocean City Music Pier performance by English singer/songwriter Jon Anderson, best known as a founding member of the progressive rock band, Yes.

Victorian Meets Vaudeville at Cape May MAC
By Shen Shellenberger,
A New Jersey summer getaway often includes a trip to the shore (that’s Jersey-speak for beach or coast; sometimes referred to as downtheshore). And the shore has a lot to offer: You can stroll in the sand and swim in the ocean, take a boat ride and go water skiing, hit the arcades and play a round of miniature golf. Or, for something altogether different, you can head over to Mid-Atlantic Center for the Arts & Humanities (MAC)’s Emlen Physick Estate to experience “Victorian Vaudeville,” an entertaining, family-friendly production performed by REV Theatre Company.

ROCK ON! This Week's Sound Bites...8/8/19
By Danny Coleman
A little more than a year ago, Neshanic Station, NJ songwriter/guitarist Tom Flynn released "Travels," a 10 track disc that lives up to its name. "Travels" meanders in and out of styles, genres and tempos while taking the listeners on an eclectic journey inside the artist's songwriting mind. 

Makin Waves with Little Vicious: Rappin' redemption with the Riff Witch!
By Bob Makin
Asbury Park/Orlando-based Marguerite King’s tale of musical and personal redemption is as passionate as the pursuit of her dreams with her bad-ass band, Little Vicious. 

Makin Waves Record of the Week: "Nope" by Shut Up
By Bob Makin
In support of their debut LP, “Nope,” Shut Up are playing Aug. 30 with Chemtrail at The Chubby Pickle, Highlands; Oct. 4 with Mudhoney at White Eagle Hall, Jersey City; Nov. 1 with Hidden Knives at The News Café, Pawtucket, R.I., and Nov. 2 at the Hixxgiving Festival at Midway Café in Boston. 


PODCAST: 2 Guys From Jersey - Episode 87
The gang returns, well at least most of us do. BTG is off globe trotting, but we pressed on without him. We discuss a fun topic, the funniest females. The doc answers some questions and a listener helps us out with the intro.


"One Night In June 2014" by Yongshin Cho
By Bill Wolak
Yongshin Cho’s latest exhibition, which closes on August 10 at the Riverside Gallery in Hackensack, is titled One Night in June 2014. The show is a call for honesty and integrity in an era of greed and hypocrisy.
