Cat

After getting what I thought was a suspicious looking email from JellyNYC about six free Saturday shows coming this summer, and in light of the recent incident, I forwarded the email to a Pool Party publicist who told me it was fake! ENDS UP, they just weren't informed it was happening (because they aren't "Pool Parties")... BUT IT IS HAPPENING!

Well wait will these line-up be better than Sunday line-up now? Maybe gang gang, man man, iggy, spoon.....you know

It's not a very official email "To Whom It May Concern", so I wouldn't have trusted it either. Also, why the fuck does JellyNYC wait so fucking long to announce this shit. Just send an email with the bands and be done with it. This Hipster Marketing is getting on my nerves.

who cares. you should just report it when it's official. it's not like you need tix so it doesnt matter if they dont announce it until the day before.

As long as the concerts are not in Williamsburg/Greenpoint/Bushwick, I will be happy!

i've heard these are just duplicates of the sunday line-ups. apparently someone is pissed about getting muscled out of the waterfront venue space, so they're just booking all the same bands a day early. word is it's going to be held in an indoor/outdoor venue on South 5th or 6th.

why wouldn't the publicist for jelly confirm if it was real or fake first with jelly? not cool on both ends. you guys fucking stink.

Posted by Anonymous | July 9, 2010 7:22 AM

why? because Jelly is a clownishly inept company propped up by shameless sponsorship funding and favors from politicians

When will Maxwell's confirm that the Time Kinsella gig is actually Cap'n Jazz? Oh wait, they already did!

stop hating on jelly. they are giving us free shows. ingrates

Posted by Anonymous | July 9, 2010 10:37 AM

lots of people "give" us lots of things. Jelly isn't getting a raw deal here, they get to make tons of money throwing corporate advertising events on public land

and somehow, with all that money, Jelly still manage to be incompetent boobs.

Hmmm well seeing as it's summer already and tomorrow is saturday who the fuck is playing? Incompetent boobs is a compliment to these clowns...Incompetent boob is the dude who wrote the ny times puff piece and failed to or didn't want to follow the money from schumer's warchest back to one of the jelly founders parents hence the uber aggressive nonsensical protection of jelly at the waterfront by schumer.

Ahh if only I could tell my Jelly stories here....

Must be fun to be on their side at least.
