Champagne Jam 2017 pics: Front Bottoms, AJJ, White Reaper, Slaughter Beach Dog & more

After supporting their new album Going Grey on a massive tour this year, The Front Bottoms headlined their annual Champagne Jam holiday show at Asbury Park’s Convention Hall on Saturday (12/16). It was the first Champagne Jam that took place in their home state of NJ, after previously hosting the others in NYC.

TFB worked a lot of treats into their setlist, including “Today Is Not Real,” a song frontman Brian Sella had written before TFB formed. They also made the live debut of a Going Grey bonus track, and they had “Christmastime Is Here” play on tape for the festive season. Their full 24-song setlist is below.

The many openers included AJJ, The Districts, White Reaper, Delicate Steve, Slaughter Beach Dog, Weakened Friends and American Trappist. Pictures, including portraits with some of the artists, are in the gallery above.

Watch TFB play “Today Is Not Real” below:
