Die-hard punk acts such as Earth Crisis, Sick Of It All and Murphy's
Law are expected to draw legions of moshers out to the first-ever Alive And Well
festival in Asbury Park, N.J., on Aug. 29. The event, to be held at the Asbury Park
Convention Hall and the Stone Pony Club, will also feature booths where the genre's
fans can buy and trade rare records and memorabilia. Among the two dozen bands on
the bill are such newer groups as Orange 9MM and H20 and such
veteran acts as the Misfits and Seven Seconds.
