Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff Is Taking His Childhood Bedroom on Tour
Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff is about to release a new album, Gone Now, and like a lot of artists, he wants fans to experience their first listen in a certain kind of place. How about a comfortable, spacious environment with good acoustics? No: A small trailer full of music memorabilia, toadstool cookie jars, and (as far as I can see) only one chair.
“[Gone Now] is about moving on and how we can’t take it all with us,” Antonoff writes, and therefore, he’s extracted the entire contents of his childhood bedroom in New Jersey—although “childhood” is stretching it, because he lived there until age 27—and packed it in a trailer, which will accompany Bleachers on tour. It is, according to a press release, “a moving, living art installation that is the thesis of Gone Now.” (A map on his website shows where it’s moving.)
Here’s some more photos of the inside and outside of this thing (all via Bleachers’ press rep):
