Who’s paying attention to the Asbury Park music scene?

President Barack Obama.

“Shows were sold out at The Stone Pony,” Obama said during his remarks outside of the city’s Convention Hall on Tuesday.

The Stone Pony reference came during a listing of happenings at the Shore this Memorial Day weekend.

The shows Obama referred to were two Gaslight Anthem concerts, Saturday and Sunday, at the outdoor Stone Pony Summer Stage.

That's very cool. One nit-picky thing though... It's too bad he didn't mention TGA by name. It's not like it would've been irrelevant, they're Jersey natives so it's like "look how this native jersey band helped an important local music venue kick off the summer with two sold out shows".

I feel like saying "shows were sold out at the stone pony" makes everyone go "who was the artist?" so it seems almost deliberately left out, which is awkward. But again, it's still cool and I'm nitpicking.
