December 12, 2015, Me Versus I decided to part ways after being a band together since June of 2010.  This year, they’re making your new year going into 2017 that much better by playing a one-off show.

A lot of the members are now doing their own thing, or actively involved in other bands now.  My mans Jaz is managing Glassboro’s hottest vegan restaurant, Prime Burger, while Jon Sudano is internet famous for the greatest set of vocal covers ever made.  We’ll get to those later.  Oh, Jaz also pays my best friend/Fellow JI blogger, Alex Lavallee, to make those hot vegan burgers.  Just figured I’d mention that because it’s very important.  (Disclaimer: Prime Burger is a Burger place - they don’t have vegan options and are in no way, shape, or form Vegan.  Thank you.)

February of 2015, MVI released a video for their song “Following Feathers” which you can check out below:

This show was originally supposed to be at the Hammonton DAV, however, some stuff went down and the venue has been changed to the American Legion Hall in Hammonton instead.  

Also, as mentioned above, it’s not easy to pay for a venue, even when it's an American Legion Hall, so get there before the first band (6pm), and save yourself some cash for Wawa or something.  Otherwise, you’re paying $8 which is still well worth it, but you don’t extra get Wawa anymore.

Me Versus I’s drummer, Jon Sudano, is now widely known for his incredible talent and prodigy capabilities of being to sing “All-Star” by SmashMouth over nearly any song ever.  That guitar saying “Anyway - here’s Wonderwall” has a whole new meaning.  This shit is revolutionary.

This show has not only hype in our area, but was recognized by our beloved future president, Donald Trump!  Look at this shit, it’s real. 

Like I said, this show will be held on January 6th, 2017, at Hammonton’s American Legion Hall from about 5:30pm-10pm.  It will be 5 bucks before the first band and 8 doll hairs after that - you should get there early to catch teethforteeth anyway because they make some bops.

A message from Me Versus I to the bands:

“***BANDS: 
bros, set up your shit before you go on the stage.
When you're done, take it off the stage and break it down.
we have 15 minute change overs and we dont wanna cut sets so put some fucking pep in your step.”
