Local Bands

Snakes Got Local Bands

Thomas Francis Takes His Chances
-A Family band out of Central NJ. Recent performances @ The Stone Pony have shown that this group of potty-mouthed kids can tear the roof off of any establishment. With songs referencing the darker side of children's nursery rhymes and on and off-stage antics requiring the assistance of the entire Asbury "fuzz" patrol, Thomas Francis is sure to excite your senses. Upcoming live dates can be found on their Myspace so take your Chances and head out to show support to these up-and-comers.

I Don't Think So Dracula
-Another Central NJ act that refreshingly brings back indie rock in a way that "modest mouse" once paved roads of gold with. Although dormant for the most part, when awakened, the natural collective ability of these guys is something to sing about. We patiently wait until a day when torment and affliction no longer holds this trio back from creating and refining more tunes like this one:

No Use For Humans
-These NJ Electronica veterans have been riotously making noise on stages up and down the 13 colonies since 2004. With percussions that own your ears and a style that has all but been swept under the carpet, No Use For Humans is the bloody nose of this area. Recently selected to represent the USA in a YMCA sponsored music festival held in Prague, they deliver the sound one would imagine happening only in Frank Zappa's dreams.

Finkle and Einhorne
-Whimsical and calm, these cubs just emerged onto the local scene with melodies sounding like the peak of an opiate high. Incomplete beginnings show promise that there is more than meets the ear here and we will keep an eye out on them to see where they go from here. Enjoy this debut-in-the-making and as always happy listening.
