Bleachers aka Jack Antonoff will be the featured guest at the Grammy Museum in Los Angeles this fall, when he sits down and speaks with the venue’s Executive Director Scott Goldman on Oct. 2 at part of the venue's Drop Series. Announced late last week, the upcoming event will shed a light on Antonoff’s career as a pop/rock guitarist and singer under the Bleachers and fun. banners, in addition to writing and producing some of the biggest names in commercial music including Lorde and Taylor Swift. The 33-year-old musician is also scheduled to deliver a performance at the end of the event as well.
Some of Antonoff’s latest projects include producing Lorde’s highly anticipated sophomore album in 2017’s Melodrama, and co-writing Taylor Swift’s recent single, “Look What You Made Me Do." He’s also scheduled to host the one-day mini music festival in his home state of New Jersey this coming Saturday with Shadow of the City. The event will feature performances from various indie artists including Khalid, Brick + Mortar, Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and of course, Bleachers. The best part about the one day event is that it's set to take place in the parking lot of the famous Stone Pony in the beachside neighborhood of Asbury Park, NJ.
Antonoff was also a part of a yearlong series focused on music and activism in collaboration with the Grammy Museum back in 2015 titled Audible Impact. The initiative brought together high school students, community leaders, activists and entertainers, in hopes of raising awareness for stopping the “discrimination, hate crimes and homelessness that disproportionately impacts the LGBTQ community.”
In addition to the event at the Grammy Museum in early October, Bleachers will continue to tour across North America this fall in support of his 2017’s Gone Now LP.
