A crop of rising and established indie/alt-rock artists – including Snail Mail, the Mountain Goats, Meat Puppets, Girlpool and Sebadoh – will perform this summer at New Jersey’s Asbury Lanes. The bowling alley/venue opened newly-renovated in 2018 with a massive stage, a 700-person dance floor and a 24-hour diner, one of the many moves that breathed life into the Asbury Park waterfront.

The eclectic lineup also includes iconic reggae group the Wailers, indie-pop acts the Drums and Broods, jam band Papadosio, indie/art-rock band Foxing and a 50th anniversary tribute to the Beatles’ Abbey Road, among others.

Bruce Springsteen christened the venue last summer by joining Danny Clinch’s Tangiers Blues Band as a “special guest” for a set of rock & roll classics like “Rockin’ Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu” and “Down the Road Apiece.” Portugal. The Man faced the daunting task of following as headliners.
