The Front Bottoms. If you’re from Jersey, you know how far these guys have come. I can remember seeing them in 2011 opening up for River City Extension at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park. They were the first band on stage, but they absolutely stole the show. Their infectious energy captivated the rabid crowd who ate up every note the band played. Fast forward four years later and TFB rules the world. Their fan base is even more diehard than ever, and now with a record deal with Fueled by Ramen, this band is about to get the much-deserved rocket strapped to their back.

Last month, Pop-Break’s Dana Mansbart caught the boys in action along with openers Elivs Depressedly, and the Smith Street Band.
