Having grown up in New Jersey, Jack Antonoff (Bleachersfun.) knows that while you live there, you’re always in the shadow of New York.

And that’s the inspiration behind the name of a new festival that he’s curating starting this year: The Shadow of the City.

Taking place Sept. 19 at the legendary Stone Pony in Asbury Park, N.J. (both in the club and in the parking lot outside), the event will feature Antonoff’s Bleachers, Charli XCXVic Mensa, the Front Bottoms, MisterWives, Cults, How to Dress Well and Robert Delong.

In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Antonoff discussed New Jersey and its influence on his life and music.

“I grew up in New Jersey, and it’s one of those places where you spend your life trying to get out,” he said.

What does Antonoff really think of New Jersey?
