Pop-Break Live: Convention Hell at Convention Hall in Asbury Park

The event featured: Members of The Parlor Mob (and friends) performing as INXS, The Shady Street Show Band performing as No Doubt, Deaf Rhino performing as Black Sabbath, Des and the Swagmatics performing as Michael Jackson, Matt Wade and Friends performing as Elton Johnson, Karmic Juggernaut performing as YES
and The Vansaders performing as New York Dolls, and Johnny Thunders. DJ Mike Merrell spun in between sets.
