Organized by Southside Johnny & the Asbury Jukes guitarist Glenn Alexander, the sixth annual Pig Gig returns on Sun., Oct. 24 from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Italian American Club in Scotch Plains, New Jersey.
Pig Gig 6 is a benefit with all profits going to the The Fibrolamellar Cancer Foundation in honor of Glenn’s nephew, Jay, who lost his battle to the disease in 2011. Fibrolamellar carcinoma is a rare cancer of the liver that typically grows in teens and adults under 40 years old. Sadly, no one has ever survived it.
Glenn, who has also played with Bruce Springsteen and Conan O’ Brien’s band, will be performing this year with both Shadowland and Blue Americana. Other acts include The Lonesome Pines, James Maddock, The Weeklings, and none other than Southside Johnny!
All attendees must be vaccinated. Tickets can be purchased at this here.
