Episode Guide »
The New Jersey-based rock band The Smithereens brings down the house with their unique driving guitar sound. The group performs a number of their hit songs, including "Blood and Roses" and "Behind the Wall of Sleep." From their humble beginnings in 1980 in Carteret, New Jersey, The Smithereens have become an enduring facet of alternative rock and acquired a cult following. Initially formed following the members' graduation from Carteret High School, the group became popular with catchy, power pop hits. Drawing on inspiration from The Beatles and Kurt Cobain, The Smithereens have honed a style all their own. With a sound described as a blend of American garage-band rock and British pop, The Smithereens have had an impressive 30-year career. Partnering with artists like The Kinks and Graham Parker, the group has produced over 10 studio albums and 4 live albums. With an extensive touring schedule, the group continues to excite devoted fans across the country. Combining the musical talents of Pat DiNizio, Jim Babjak, Dennis Diken and Severo Jornacion, The Smithereens offer something not seen everyday: a lively, fun, and entertaining performance. A true pillar in the underground music scene, The Smithereens are a great addition to INFINITY HALL LIVE.
