Artist To Watch: Big Jesus

What do you get when you mix 90s-alt rock, loud guitars, and ethereal vocals?  BIG JESUS.   These Atlanta, GA natives are ready to kick down any walls you’ve built around your music loving hearts and they’re hoping you’ll invite Big Jesus into your life.  And trust us, you do!

The band just released their debut album called “Oneiric” to much fanfare from Alternative Press to Rolling Stone – and we’re no exception. This album sets out to punch you in your gut with vocals that you wouldn’t expect to pair so effortlessly and perfectly with the fuzzy, grungy guitars.  If you don’t believe us, check out Big Jesus’ brand new video for “SP” below.

NKOTB To Play Coney Island August 4th

In true NKOTB fashion, the guys just dropped some HUGE surpise news on us that got us really excited for summertime (as if we weren’t already!)  Danny, Donnie, Jordan, Jonathan, and Joey announced that they’ll be headlining a very special show at the brand new Amphitheater at Coney Island Boardwalk this August just before Mixtape Festival.  While they had insisted Mixtape would be their only show of the year, they couldn’t resist throwing a “warmup” gig in NYC a couple of days before.   Of course we’re going to both shows!

Like any true Blockhead knows, Coney Island is a special place for NKOTB – it’s where they filmed their first music video for “Please Don’t Go Girl.”   It’s also the home of Wahlburgers, with its rooftop overlooking the Wonder Wheel and the rest of the iconic beach park.

Be sure to get your tickets because this will sell out fast and maybe you’ll get to ride a roller coaster with your favorite New Kid just like in all of your fangirl dreams!   Pre-sales for Block Nation members start on Tuesday, June 7th at 10am.  General tickets are on sale Friday, June 10th!  Beach + Boy Band + Burgers + Roller Coasters .. what more could you ask for in a Summer concert?   And as you know, NKOTB always BRING.  IT.
