Supporting New Jersey's Local Music Scene Since 2000

Message From Lazlo

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to all who contacted their congressional leaders last Tuesday during the internet radio day of silence. While the new royalty rate is still in place to begin on July 15th, we did make politicians and the media take notice of this issue. Please continue to go to to see how you can help save internet radio.


A few announcements this week...

Since the first Wednesday of the month is the 4th of July, there will be no Folk You! show this month. But fear not, for Folk You! returns to the Goldhawk on Wednesday August 1st.


In honor of the 4th of July, Lazlo's Den will be playing fun Independent tunes on the show Wednesday. Celebrate Independence Day with Independents!

Also this week on Lazlo's Den will be some cool interviews:
Tuesday on Lazlo's Den


Thursday on Lazlo's Den



And while I have the space I want to mention 2 shows coming up in the next few months that you shouldn't miss.

On Saturday August 18th, The Black River Music & Art Fest returns to Chester, NJ. This free all day event is going to feature over 30 bands on 4 stages. More info is at

And on Saturday September 29th there will be a big all day/night benefit show at Buddie's Tavern featuring a plethora of local bands. The money from the show will be going to the Spondylitis Association Of America (

This is a very personal benefit for me, as my wife, Naomi, suffers from Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS), a form of arthritis that primarily affects the spine, although other joints can become involved. It causes inflammation of the spinal joints (vertebrae) that can lead to severe, chronic pain and discomfort. In the most advanced cases (but not in all cases), this inflammation can lead to new bone formation on the spine, causing the spine to fuse in a fixed, immobile position, sometimes creating a forward-stooped posture.

I will have more information on this benefit soon.


Album of the Month
The Chilling Details - "innerdialogue"

The Chilling Details push the boundaries of rock-based music. Armed with an arsenal of influences the trio takes the stage not just willing to entertain you but to challenge you to exist outside the box of your everyday life.

With just three members, some say The Chilling Details live performances emulate Spector’s legendary “wall of sound”. Decibel, amplitude, and dynamics can be wielded like crude weapons or controlled like a skilled craftsman’s tools in the hands of the group which consists of charismatic front man Frank Bressi (vocals, guitars) and the booming rhythm section of Chris Smith (bass,vocals) and James Griffith (drums,vocals).

In the recording studio The Chilling Details communicate the fire of their live shows with an added clarity that is sure to set them apart from their peers. Taking the collection of songs penned by Bressi to great heights of texture and depth without losing the energy that have made their live shows shine for the crowds who have been steadily growing in number like summertime sun worshipers drawn the beaches of the same Jersey Shore that The Chilling Details call home.

June 2007(Oradell, NJ) – The rock band Kosmic Daydream was selected by Mind Trip Productions for a feature role in the upcoming music film project, “Mind Trip to Musicland’s: In the Face of Destiny”.

The film is a ‘musicfiction’, the story centers around the subject of music and like science fiction, good against evil; a music science fiction fantasy. This film is the sequel to Mind Trip's current project on DVD called "Mind Trip to Musicland’s: Power Over Your Destiny”.

Mind Trip has cast actress/model Angel Monroe in a lead role. For the bands that are a part of this feature film, it would be like shooting a music video.

Kosmic Daydream, dubbed the originator of the neo-psychedelic genre, is comprised of Jeniffer De Los Santos (Kosmic Goddess), Jimmi Dylan (guitar), Adam Hirschman (bass), and Jose Cruz (drums). The group performs extensively in the NYC-metro area, and is currently recording an album.

Sol Music Management, which represents bands/artists like 'Anvil', 'Diamond David Lee Roth', 'Dokken', 'Paul Di'Anno', and 'Twisted Sister', is also involved in the project.
