Anchored in Asbury #5: Happy Mondays Returns with Brian Erickson & Biff Swenson

Check out The Pop Break Today Feed of The Pop Break Podcast Network — on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Anchor.

Welcome to Anchored in Asbury, a monthly music interview podcast that revolves around the rich musical culture of Asbury Park, New Jersey.

Each month we talk with musicians, promoters, and people behind the scenes about their journeys in the music industry and how Asbury Park has been and is such a vital part of it.

The podcast is hosted by Bill Bodkin, editor-in-chief of ThePopBreak.com, who not only has covered the Asbury Park music scene for 19 years but produced and sponsored live shows throughout the city for the past decade.

This episode, your host Bill Bodkin, is joined by two veterans of the Asbury Park music scene — Brian Erickson (The Extensions, Paper Jets) and Biff Swenson (Yawn Mower, Grasser).

The reason these two rad humans have joined the podcast is because they are bringing back Happy Mondays — a free weekly show for local bands (and touring acts) to perform in front of the insatiable music fans of Asbury Park — to The Wonder Bar.

Biff and Brian talk about having the same idea of bringing Happy Mondays back unbeknownst to each other, how much the night means to them, the bands they’ve booked that you should be keeping an eye out for, their own personal projects and their opinions on the current Asbury scene.
