A brand new alt-rock music festival is coming to Atlantic City, NJ

NJ’s alternative rock scene must sometimes feel left out by tour managers and concert promoters. Unless a major headliner is coming to MetLife Stadium or the Prudential Center, your options for seeing an alt-rock concert are usually limited within the confines of the Garden State. It’s been a long time since Bamboozle.

That’s what makes today’s announcement of the brand new Frantic City Music Festival in Atlantic City all the more exciting.

The one-day festival will take place at the Orange Loop Amphitheater in Atlantic City on September 24.

The range includes:

car seat headrest

Yo La Tengo

Postal mail

The Devils of Murder City

Shannon and the clams

Superchunk

The Raveonettes

Crypt Rocket

Samiam

Titus Andronicus

Note: Yo La Tengo is originally from Hoboken, NJ. Titus Andronicus, meanwhile, hails from Glen Rock, NJ.

The festivities will be hosted by none other than Fred Armisan of “SNL” fame.

According to StereoGumFrantic City was booked by Todd Abramson, the longtime New Jersey indie rock promoter and WFMU DJ who was once a partner at legendary nightclub Hoboken Maxwell’s, along with co-creator Joe HoldFast of HoldFast records.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday, April 15 at the festival website.
