South Jersey punk band Aspiga will be rocking out with Ex-Friends at the North Star Bar tonight. Aspiga released their second full-length Every Last Piece a couple of months ago via Paper + Plastick Records and found some time between East Coast tour dates to record a crushing Key Studio Session (listen back here). Aspiga will be joined by Ex-Friends (bassist Joel Tannenbaum of the recently re-banded Plow United), Relatives and Goddamnit. Tickets and information can be found here; below, stream and download “On The Defensive” from Aspiga’s Key Studio Session.
New Jersey rockers Ominous Ominous Ominous play The Balcony at The Trocadero tonight. The Woodstown, NJ natives have varied influences – ranging from metal to synth-pop to “circus punk folk” band The World/Inferno Friendship Society – but the quartet’s own sound falls steadily in the pure-fun-indie-rock category. Also playing tonight are Come and Get It and The Ridden Fifths. Tickets and information for the 21+ show can be found here. Below, stream and download Ominous Ominous Ominous’ song “Spaceman Date.”
