“FLEMINGTON DIY (Do It Yourself) is an organization whose mission is to inspire social change by fostering and cultivating projects that connect the local community with musicians and artists in Flemington.” Flemington DIY is a non-profit organization dedicated to the arts in all forms. Besides serving as a creative art space, hosting poetry nights, film viewings, cultural meetings, etc., this space is known as the center music hub for the area. They have hosted a number of up and coming bands previously such as Petal, Dowsing, Jank, Spencer Radcliff, and many more.
For this show, the art space will be hosting mostly New Jersey bands, as well as Johnny Mays a.k.a. WATERMEDOWN from Georgia. The gig is on Friday, February 3rd, 2017, and doors are at 6:00pm. There are 5 bands, on top of watermedown, so make sure you get there early. It’s a stacked show with some of the best bands (and the best people) in the tri-state area. They’re making moves, and you don’t want to miss this show.
This show is very special because watermedown is finally releasing new music after his initial release of Somewhere Sleepless in 2015, which you can listen to via Spotify below:
Since then, watermedown has released two singles off of the new record:
and “Dead Things”
The record is called “the same view with a new light” and will be released the day of the show, February 3rd, 2017 via Equal Vision Records.
