Everclear and Sponge will perform together live on stage later this month.
The bands will share the stage Jan. 17 at the Masquerade Rock Music Festival. The festival will take place in Wantagh, NY. The Raskins will join the bill as a special guest for the event. That Metal Show co-host Don Jamieson will serve as the event’s emcee.
A trailer for the forthcoming show is streaming online here. The concert is sponsored by Mulcahy’s Pub & Concert Hall and WBAB 102.3 FM.
Everclear front man Art Alexakis said in a recent interview, he is looking forward to taking part in the concert.
“We’re excited to get back in front of our New York fans for Masquerade Music Fest,” he said. “It’s going to be a great show with a killer lineup.
Sponge front man Vinnie Dombroski shared Alexakis’ sentiments in a brief statement.
“Sponge is excited to be part of a great lineup,” he said.
The Raskins front man Logan Raskin said he was highly anticipating the concert.
“It’s an honor for my brother and I to have The Raskins playing with some of our favorite bands,” he said. “Listening to these bands for many years as fans and having the opportunity to share the same stage with them at the Masquerade Rock Music Fest is a dream come true.”
This year is the second time that Jamieson has served as emcee for the festival. He said he was looking forward to taking part in the event again.
“I’m really excited to host my second Masquerade Music Fest,” he said. “As a comic and a rock fan, these nights are a total blast. Come rock out with us on Strong Island!”
The Masquerade Rock Music Fest most recently took place Dec. 1 at The Space Theatre in Westbury, Long Island. The Raskins took part in that event, too along with Sponge. They were joined by Puddle of Mudd and Fuel.
Other Masquerade Rock Music Festival dates are planned nationwide and around the world. Information on those concerts is posted online at:
