Remember Jones will perform at House of Independents in Asbury Park.

It was announced last week that the Asbury Park nightclub House of Independents will reopen in the summer, under new management. And today, the first 14 shows — and a very diverse batch of shows, at that — have been announced. They include local rock scene veteran Remember Jones as well as comedy, a musical based on the movie “The Call of Cthulhu,” and lots of dance-oriented shows.
