Quiksilver

This press release went out this morning...

QUIKSILVER PRO NEW YORK SURF CONTEST WILL RUN: Update from Long Beach

An important update from Long Beach - Quiksilver is working closely with the City of Long Beach to preserve the heart of the professional surf contest scheduled to start on Sunday, September 4 in light of the impact of Hurricane Irene and concerns for the Long Beach community, which suffered significant damage from the storm. The Quiksilver Pro is scheduled to start its 11-day "holding period" on Monday, September 5. The Quiksilver Pro Trials presented by Unsound Surf will run on Sunday, September 4.

The situation has been changing daily, and we recognize that City resources are focused on hurricane restoration and clean up as first priority. In that context, we have been informed by the City that the festival and music components of the event are no longer achievable.

The Quiksilver Pro NY is first and foremost about the surf contest and Long Beach has an incredible surfing tradition and spirit. We are committed to holding the ASP tour event at Long Beach so that together we can promote the sport by bringing together the best surfers in the world to this terrific community.

Damn. You can see the list of who was supposed to play, below...

This summer has been so whack with concerts and general events compared to the past. Let's hope the fall is better.

I hope the FLips add another show.

Now that I actually look at the set times and days, how the fuck was I going to leave the work midday to see these shows. It gets really busy at the vegan muffin stand in the middle of the day.

@ 1:44 loving the WAVVES reference. Are they having another free show here???

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2011 1:45 PM

I hope Badfish play somewhere else in NYC. The rest of the bands are weak anyway.

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2011 1:51 PM

damn, why was it going to be a disaster? serious question...

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2011 2:08 PM

Like we need another Flaming Lips show around here. Free or otherwise.

No more Lips shows until that bubble is gone.

You see what you did Irene?!?!? WHERE THE FUCK IS 1:51 GOING TO WEAR HIS BOARD SHORTS AND PUKA SHELL NECKLACE NOW???

If you don't fix this shit right away, he could leave us, go back to the ASU campus, and work as a lifeguard, until we've got our shit in order.

DON'T LET THAT HAPPEN!

1:51: I thought that read Beardfish there for a split second. Now THAT would be cool!

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2011 2:29 PM

well shit. id rather go see the lips play on a beach during a surf competition than be at work talking to you ass clowns all day.

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2011 2:32 PM

Are all these bands going to play "Pictures Of Matchstick Men"? That sounds like a pretty boring show, although I still kind of like hearing that song, once in a while.

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2011 2:39 PM

Posted by Anonymous | August 30, 2011 2:42 PM

I bet those Lawn Guyland land developers are starting to have some regrets about building on an ancient Indian burial ground.
