The show, from 8 p.m. to 1 a.m., will feature Mt. Hebron parent rock ‘n’ rollers, playing with their bands to raise money for the school’s PTA.
The Thousand Pities will take the stage first. Singer/guitarist Matt Davis started out in the ‘80s and ‘90s playing in the western Massachusetts indie band, the Vestryman, touring a lot and sharing stages with the likes of Robyn Hitchcock, Aimee Mann and Green Day. He took some time off for family and to set down some new Jersey roots, then started playing again with The Thousand Pities. Davis will kick off the night singing and playing an acoustic set of his jangly power-pop originals, with special guests—he'll be joined by some of his friends from Speed the Plough.
Next up will be Whatserface, five local moms who met while their kids were at Rand School and decided to start a rock ‘n’ roll band. They bring a girl-powered approach to their quirky pop and rock songs, some familiar and others from a little further down the charts.
Last up will be Sock Monster, who play a power pop/punk mix of shoulda-been-hits that span the time from the ‘60s through the present, from the Kinks to the Replacements to the Plimsouls and the Gin Blossoms—all the great stuff that should and would get played on the radio if radio was good!
The event will raise money for the Mt. Hebron PTA.
The show begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $20 until midnight Friday, February 26, from
Brownpapertickets.com, or $25 at the door that night—all money raised goes to benefit the Mt. Hebron PTA. Tierney’s is located at 136 Valley Road. Montclair.
