Short Lived Affair will rock you, Evesham Township

Anyone who follows college basketball will tell you that the best teams in the March Madness tournament have a roster filled with experienced, hard nosed players who have tournament experience. The four Cherokee High School senior rock artists of Short Lived Affair will tell you the same thing, as they are looking to successfully defend their title and perform at the Bamboozle Festival again this summer.

The all-girl rock band Short Lived Affair is looking to repeat as one of the winners of The Break Contest, an invitational tournament that offers local bands the opportunity to win a slot at the annual Bamboozle Festival, which is held each year at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park.

The band consists of Monica Kelly on vocals, Kaitlyn Young, on guitar, Taylor Coigne on bass, and Rachel Visitacion on drums. All four girls attend Cherokee High School and all four are seniors.

Last year at The Break Contest, Short Lived Affair tore up the contest and claimed one of the spots at the Bamboozle Festival. The girls opened for such established bands as The Wonder Years, Hawthorne Heights, and Cash Cash, Young said. They played on the Zumiez stage, a large venue at the festival.

“It’s a contest where bands compete against each other for a spot,” Young explained. “There are three rounds and we won the first round about a month. When we played Bamboozle last year it was definitely awesome, we can’t wait for this year.”

Despite all of the members of the band graduating this year, Young said they will all be attending online universities or community colleges in the area so they can continue with their band.

Why break up after graduation when the group just released its first EP, which is available for free at all of the bands gigs.

“This album is going to be released by us. We’re giving it away for free on our Break gigs and any show we play we’ll have free copies for the audience,” she said. “Hopefully we’ll be putting it up on iTunes or Bandcamp, any of those selling places.”

The band is also setting their sights on the Warped Tour, which is hosting a similar contest to the Bamboozle Festival. Short Lived Affair has already been booked for the Ernie Ball Competition, with winning bands reserving a slot to play on the Ernie Ball stage when the tour comes to Camden, N.J.

The band will play a gig to get into the tour in April, she said, and could possibly be in the running for the grand prize winner to tour around with the festival for two straight weeks.
