If you’re looking for a powerful sampling of the artistic diversity and talent of Jersey City, make your plans for a special show at White Eagle Hall on Friday, January 19.
While the event is titled Jersey City Rocks, expect to hear a mixture of genres spanning power pop, hip-hop, indie rock, dub sounds, and even a bit of psychedelic metal. Oh, and add a DJ, and MC and an art exhibition to the mix.
The night has been organized by local rocker Debra Devi. “I want this show to turn people on to the multicultural, loving and accepting energy of the Jersey City music scene, which makes this such an amazing place to live and create,” Devi told hMAG. “In this town, we hang out together and we create together, across racial and genre boundaries. I hope this show is just the beginning of many more to come that will illuminate the quality and diversity of the music and art being produced in this town.”
They’ve even created a video to give you a sampling of the evening:
