Beaching and Wining

Far enough from the city but close to my heart, Far Rockaway Beach was our poor man’s retreat. We escaped every weekend, rain or shine, and acted like shipwrecked Bohemians, sipping boxed wine and sharing hand-rolled smokes. We were glamorous castaways, clad in straw hats, bold prints, red lips, and vintage shades. Deliberately stranded, we imagined ourselves on a remote island, abundant in fish tacos, fresh coco water, and endless rolls of film. Sometimes you don’t have to travel great distances to go far. Aloha Far Rockaway, see you soon!

Song by Morning Benders

Like a deserted beach in the midst of a chilling winter, The Judy Blooms are love and depression; only highs and lows lead by desperate manic vocals pleading over frivolous love and missed connections. Grieving guitars wailing in regret and drums that beat like a breaking heart mold their despondent lullabies of infatuation and self-loathing. Influenced by bands like Nirvana and The Walkmen, The Judy Blooms write romantic anthems for the troubled and the emotionally unavailable. Originally from the Gem City, a proletariat factory hub in Dayton Ohio, The Judy Blooms exert just the right touch of Retro and Grunge smudged in a little elbow grease.

Curious? Check them out Saturday, April 16th at Lit Lounge.

Listen, Befriend and Go!
