The Front Bottoms formed in the mid 2000s, and self-released their first album, I Hate My Friends, in 2008. Their sound blends rock with a bit pop and punk and witty lyrics for an overall sound that's reminiscent of the Mountain Goats. Their latest album, Going Grey was released in late 2017 and features singles Raining, Vacation Town and Peace Sign.
Brick + Mortar are another New Jersey band. They toured with the Front Bottoms back in 2016, but have also been playing gigs and releasing albums since 2008. The duo released their latest single, One Little Pill, in 2017.
The final band on the line-up are Australians the Smith Street Band. Their songs feature their unmistakeable Aussie drawl, with a laid back style that still knows how to rock.
