Snaps: Asbury Park / Nicole Atkins


Last weekend I went to Asbury Park to see one of my favorite singers, Nicole Atkins perform at The Stone Pony. I have been a huge fan of hers for about five years now, and I have seen her multiple times at different places in NJ/NY. You may remember my post about the record shop last year where I saw her perform her new album live.

I hadn't really visited the boardwalk in a long time and although I have seen some shows at the convention center and the stone pony, I never really spent time on the boardwalk itself. I went with my cousin and her fiancee Jeremy and we did some shopping in the boutiques, ate some ice cream and walked around enjoying the weather. Once we got to the show it was hard to get pictures because  I'm not exactly the tallest person, but listening to her was enough for me.

She's one of the only singers that literally gives me chills every time she sings. She is so talented, and seeing her live always reinforces how much I love her music. She also played some of her new songs, that she had never played live before. It's also pretty cool that she's a NJ native, and Asbury is her home, it's always nice to hear someone perform in their hometown. If you'd like to hear some of her music you can check her out here.
