WHAT:

New Alternative Music Festival
Two day festival. Bands without dozens of corporate sponsors and beer logos.

WHERE:

Convention Hall, Asbury Park, NJ

WHEN:

September 16 – 17, 2016

WHY:

Music festivals have become the rabbit hole of a money suck and the millionth opportunity to show off hundreds of advertisements. The NAMF was conceived to spotlight the music and not the sponsors.

THE GOOD:

Great cross section of bands both known and unknowns. Highlights included The Screaming Females.

THE BAD:

Way too small of a crowd. If people want new music they had better support new music.

THE UGLY:

The dust and mold in Convention Hall is a real example of how Asbury Park let this amazing venue fall apart. New hope exists as Asbury is becoming (once again) the place to be. I still miss Asbury Lanes though. I sneezed for three days.
