With the last weeks of summer finally upon us, the NJ scene is in no way winding down, but instead perking up and getting ready for a long stay in the autumn and winter months. Nothing but tours, album releases, and of course, more tours are ahead of us, as well a lot of new music coming out this week.
We Are The In Crowd announced on Facebook last night, that a new song would be released in "two days" meaning either Tuesday or Wednesday this week. Excitement should ensue for anyone familiar with the band, and anyone not should turn their attention directly to the band's music here, and get familiar. We Are The In Crowd are one of our favorite NY natives, and one of those bands you just can't skip up on a playlist.
Newcomer to the scene, John Gold, will be releasing his first music video for his song "Fourth Tier Morality" on Wednesday, video blogger and NJ native Destiny Vargas is heading up a concert for the LGBT community and is asking for donations and bands to volunteer from her home state, Weirdface is sitting down with us this week to talk about the EP, and plenty more news coming at you in full detail as the week goes on.

As always, do your part for your scene, NJ. It needs you more than you know. Find a ride, buy a ticket, and see a show to support your favorite local bands and some that you might need to take a chance on. Local bands depend on your support as individuals to build a fan base and in turn keep local venues alive. Without the fans and patrons of the arts, and of course, the random person that goes to see a group they've never heard of that's playing their first act at a little club, promoters will continue to lose business, clubs will start shutting down, and the bands we want to see will be pushed out of NJ. For many of them, that isn't an option because of the high cost of travel. So next time you get an invite from a promoter on Facebook, make sure you take a second look, and find out if you wouldn't rather get yourself out there.
