Andrew WK at Webster Hall in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Andrew WK

Back before Bamboozle started hitting Asbury Park (or other nearby places in NJ) every spring, the similar Skate and Surf Festival used to go down there, but hasn't been in active in eight years. Following the announcement that there will be no Bamboozle in 2013 (but they say, "keep your eyes peeled for 2014 info"), it was announced that Skate and Surf Fest is being revived this year, and will happen from May 18 to 19 at Plaza Green at iPlay America (110 Schanck Road) in Freehold, NJ.

Though we'd never turn down a solo set by Andrew WK, the rest of the lineup is not one we particularly care about, much like most of Bamboozle's lineup in years past. Other bands playing include Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Saves the Day, Bayside, Into It. Over It., Hopsin, and more. Tickets go on sale Saturday (1/12).

Full lineup and flyer below...

I like saves the day, but wouldn't really go out of my way to see them here.

I would go if the rumors of a Midtown reunion were true.

Wait...Hopsin is good. Why don't you care about him?

I'd probably go to this just for Transit, A Day To Remember, and Into it Over it. I haven't decided if its worth the long drive though..

Rx bandits are playing thats the reason that will make me drive from buffalo just to see them again. Best live performance you'll ever see. I could listen to them just jam for 2 days straight, no offense to the other bands there but thats who I'm goin for. All the bands are great but the bandits are the shit.

I like to think that this is how Andrew WK acts on a normal day.
