Up until Saturday night I had only heard about Mackenzie Brown but was very interested in hearing and seeing her perform. MACK as she is called in the music world had her EP release show at The Saint in Asbury Park, NJ. Her EP Balance is a collection of a few songs that really shows her rage as a young artist. She resides in New Jersey and works as a music instructor at the Lakehouse Music Academy which is home and work to many bands and musicians from the area. Mackenzie’s voice is extremely refreshing and has a cool stage performance as well as she was backed up with some seasoned local musicians. Her EP Balance is available on iTunes and spotify I totally recommend giving her tunes a listen.

Lost in Society has been one of my favorite local Asbury Park bands who seem to keep striving towards bigger and better things. They are incredibly energetic on stage and pump out some cool punk songs to go along with their punk ass personalities. They have some cool stuff coming up like a new record “Modern Illusions” coming out February 26th 2016. There song “I Want To Know” is available now via streaming at Substream Magazine
They have some awesome shows coming up and was added to an already amazing lineup for the Panic State Records show Jan. 30th at Starland Ballroom with Catch 22.
Toothgrinder is coming out with some new music, Jan. 29th “Nocturnal Masquerade” will be available.
I remember being at one of Toothgrinders very first shows at Pauls Tavern in Lake Como, NJ and was so blown away by the energy these guys had on stage. There was no way in hell you could watch or listen to them without feeling it as well.
