Indie Folk Band AJJ To Perform At Chronic Town

The Asylum Music Club recently announced that indie folk band AJJ (formerly know as Andrew Jackson Jihad) will be performing at Chronic Town on October 28.

The band was formed in Phoenix, Arizona in 2004 and has since obtained cult status among many indie rock/folk fans, especially for its aggressive folk punk sound and lead singer Sean Bonnette’s distinctive vocal delivery. AJJ recently released its sixth full length album, The Bible Part 2 last August.

The group is touring in support of the 10th anniversary of its 2007 album People Who Can Eat People Are the Luckiest People in the World.

The concert will not include every member of the band. Instead, Bonnette and band member Ben Gallaty will perform songs from the aforementioned album, along with more recent works, as an acoustic duo. Fellow folk punk act and Pittsburgh native The Homeless Gospel Choir will also be performing, along with local acts that will be announced at a later date.

The Asylum will be holding a student ticket presale on October 11 at Table No. 5 in the HUB from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tickets will be $5 and a Penn State student ID must be shown when purchasing your ticket. Tickets for non-students are $10. There will be a limit of one per student and the sale will be cash only. All remaining tickets will be sold at the door before the event.

Doors open at 8 p.m. and the concert begins at 9 p.m.
