On September 23rd, the Asbury Park Brewery held No Such Animals release show, with help from Aftermath Collective. The lineup included local favorites Have a Good Season, Freehold’s Good Luck Spaceman and The Vaughns from Springfield.
Good Luck Spaceman - "Center of the Earth"
Here is a clip of Good Luck Spaceman playing “Center of the Earth,” a song of their latest self-titled EP. Spaceman brought a lot of energy and a lot of gear, including a TV set that played throughout their performance. The combination of effects, guitars and volume made for a spacey performance, reminiscent of Sonic Youth.

Have a Good Season - "Joseph"
Have a Good Season kicked off the night with their nostalgic 90’s emo sound. This was their second show of the weekend and they made sure to switch up their setlist for the fans that were going to be attending both in a row. Since two of the members are in school their local shows start to slow down once the school year starts. Seeing them is always a treat and this night was no exception. Here is a clip of the title track “Joseph” off of their 2015 EP.

No Such Animals - "Suffer"
No Such Animals were the stars of the night. Performing as a three-piece, they really blew me away. I had never heard of them before, but they truly gained a fan. I talked to the guys and I am looking forward to reviewing their latest EP “Create/TV.” This is one of their newest tracks titled “Suffer.”
For fans of The Blood Brothers, Jimmy Eat World, Manchester Orchestra
The Vaughns closed the night with an acoustic set. They were the perfect ending for a night of loud rock and roll. Usually a loud four-piece, The Vaughns still blew everyone away without a drummer with their sheer talent in songwriting. It was tough to get up front for them, but here is a clip of a new song.
