Acrylics Playing After the Jump Fest; More Line-Up Announcements to Come Via Twitter


After the Jump Festival, the annual three-day local music convocation organized by local music bloggers–“the ones on the front lines, crushed into the barrier, braving bad music; earsplitting acoustics and drunken mobs, all to bring you a daily look at the New York music world”–has announced, dunh dunh da nah, Acrylics as the fest’s first 2009 act. ATJF, slated for August 28, 29, and 30 at the new Gowanus spot Littlefield, is going the Twitter route as far as announcing the rest of the line-up, promising “special announcements all week” as far as who will be playing. Acrylics, featuring one personal friend of SOTC and some ace, dazed male/female soft rock vocal interplay, are a good start. Watch the After the Jump Twitter this week for the rest of the bill.
