A good classic rock band, like someone eating a snowman, must deliver face-melting licks while munching carrots as loudly as possible. Lap up some old-fashioned rock 'n' roll with today’s Groupon: for $18, you get one general-admission ticket to witness the classic rock of Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes on Friday, July 8, at 8 p.m. at Bourbon Street's The Ballroom (a $37.50 value). Doors open at 7 p.m.
The New Orleans–themed Bourbon Street welcomes Jersey's Southside Johnny and the Asbury Jukes for a rollicking all-ages show at The Ballroom, its 1,100-capacity venue. Closely associated with rock giants Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi, Southside Jonny belts tunes such as "The Fever" and "I Don't Want to Go Home"—which he penned after entering a combination KFC/Taco Bell for the first time—in his rip-roaring live shows. The band pull tunes from a three-decade-strong catalog of harmonica-filled rock 'n' roll, including the 2010 studio effort Pills and Ammo. Though the lineup has changed over the years, Southside Johnny still commands the stage with his high-energy vocals, and the band's signature mix of melodic horns, Garden State earnestness, and scintillating basket-weaving remains unchanged.
