Shane Mauss
Thursday, June 1
Doors 7:30pm, $15/$20
The Saint Presents Comedy feat. From Los Angeles, CA, Shane Mauss / Joe McAndrew / JC Hendricks. "A Good Trip" 100 City Tour comedy show about psychedelics and special guests.


A GOOD TRIP is a stand-up comedy show about psychedelics. Shane Mauss has too many credits to name. Since winning HBO's Comedy Arts Festival "Best Stand up Comic" Award, he's gone on to be a favorite on Conan, Jimmy Kimmel, Comedy Central, Netflix, and Showtime. His latest album, 'My Big Break,' debuted at #1 on the iTunes comedy chart and now he's diving into a brand new hour about one of his admittedly controversial lifelong passions: psychedelics.

A self-described insane teenager, Shane seems to have done every drug he could get his hands on while constantly in trouble with the law. Since then, however, he's gone from barely getting a high school diploma to interviewing the top scientists in the world about the meaning of life on his hit podcast 'Here We Are' while headlining comedy clubs all over the world. Throughout all of this there appears to have been only one constant in Shane's life: TRIPPING BALLS.

Take a journey down the rabbit hole for some deep, authentic laughs about mushrooms, LSD, DMT and more. Shane will question our fickle perceptions, share personal experiences, explore the history of psychedelics and modern scientific research. All with a lot of laughs and a whole lot of weird in one of the most unique and thought-provoking shows you will ever see.

NOTE: No prior drug experience is required to enjoy this show. It will be entertaining and educational for all.

WARNING: This show is about PSYCHEDELICS! It's about learning about ourselves and looking at life differently. If you are a fan of meth, heroin, or any other idiotic drug like that, this show will probably only make you feel worse about yourself than you likely already do.

FINALLY: To answer your question, no! Shane will not actually be on drugs during the actual performance, mostly because tripping at work is a waste of good drugs. But regardless, we're all going to have a good trip.

Moonrise Nation
Wednesday, June 7
Doors 7:30pm, $10
Rock Indie Folk: From Chicago, IL, Moonrise Nation (A young fresh ensemble with a pop sensibility, the girls speak for an upcoming generation. As musicians and writers, they craft songs that are anchored in alternative folk with meaningful lyrics and deliver with compelling stage presence in their live shows.) and special guests.

At turns ethereal and powerful, Moonrise Nation - releasing their debut album, Glamour Child, on July 28 - create aural experiences that pulse from ear to heart. The Americana-pop trio of keyboardist Arden Baldinger, cellist Eva Baldinger, and guitarist Emma McCall (all share songwriting and vocal duties) hails from Oak Park, Illinois, also home to Ernest Hemingway and Frank Lloyd Wright. Like those kindred spirits, their storytelling begins in a very personal place, but is always sculpted into something universal. Its first single is the title track, about a toxic relationship, which has already tallied more than a half-million streams. A vivid, sonically ambitious time capsule of the trio's growth from teenagers to adulthood, Glamour Child captures the vertiginous, Millennial high-lows of self-confidence and doubt, happiness and practicality, innocence and reality.

Saturday, June 10
Doors 7:30pm, $12/$15
UMT and The Saint present The Billy Walton Band (Premiering their new album "Soul of a Man") with very special guests Colossal Street Jam + Strumberry Pie.

There was a time when the Jersey Shore represented the best in American entertainment. Count Basie, Lionel Hampton, the Rat Pack, Dick Clark, Chubby Checker, they all made stops on the Jersey Shore. Tony Mart's was the club Levon Helm was playing when Dylan called. Of course we all know what happened in Asbury Park. The town, ravaged by riots in the late '60s, became a melting pot of musical experimentation. Late night jams that ended when the sun came up were the norm. Bruce Springsteen & Southside Johnny were the two acts that made their way to an international stage from these humble beginnings.

For decades musicians have come and gone, always hoping to make a living and pursue a dream. Billy Walton is no different. Billy's proving ground was Long Beach Island. There he was chaperoned from gig to gig by his Mom, two young to drive around and enter the clubs on his own. He was always up for a jam and looking to learn some new tricks. For years Billy spent his time sharpening his skills, developing his stage act until he decided to step to center stage with the Billy Walton Band. The band has focused its effort in Europe. 20 tours since 2007 have established the group in the fertile British Blues Rock scene.

In 2010 Billy got the call to join with one of the masters of the Asbury Park sound, Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes. For years Billy toured with the Jukes. Most people don't know that the creative force behind Southside was none other than Little Steven. A highpoint in Billy's tenure with the Jukes was when they recorded a live version of Southside's interpretation of the classic Little Steven album, Men Without Women, with Little Steven performing in the band!

This show will present the Billy Walton Band with horns, organ, keys, and kazoo! It's a can't-miss show as the band will be presenting its new release, Soul Of A Man, for the Asbury Park scene. Recorded in Hawaii and Philadelphia these new songs represent 10 years of hard work and development.
