Bouncing Souls ‘Home for the Holidays’ is underway (sort of)
The Bouncing Souls were supposed to kick off their 4th annual 'Home for the Holidays' run of shows at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park last night (12/26), but...
"We are concerned for everyone traveling and have no choice but to postpone. [Sunday]'s events will be moved to THURSDAY Dec 30th. Show time will still be at 7pm. The Great Explainer
and Strike Anywherewill still play, but sadly A.O.D. will not be in NJ by then. We are also moving the afterparty at the Asbury Lanes to Thursday night. We will still be playing the first 2 albums on Thursday. The other nights' schedules will remain unchanged. We hope you can join us on Thursday. If you can't, please request a refund at the point of purchase by noon on Thursday. Be safe, stay warm. With heavy hearts we remain yours."
As you can see, I crossed out "and Strike Anywhere" because they have since announced that The Loved Ones will replace them on the rescheduled show.
Meanwhile the 2nd, which is now the 1st, show hopefully happens tonight, though opener Fake Problems have so far announced that they can't be there.
UPDATE: Tonight's show is cancelled too:
Holy smokes!!! For those of you outside the Jersey Shore zone of disaster: there is a lot of snow (2-5 foot drifts!!) and gnarly winds. We are under a state of emergency and transportation is impossible. The roads are not plowed in Asbury park and are impassible. We have no choice but to cancel tonight's show. Please go to the point of purchase for a refund. If you purchased your ticket from Chunksaah Online, we will refund your PayPal account in the next 3 days (4 day pass holders will get back $25). This is really disappointing for all of us, not the festive holiday party we planned at all! I just spoke to the Fake Problems camp and they are unable to get a flight. Lemuria were more than willing to attempt to get here but I told them to stay safe in Syracuse. The crazy kids in The Swellers made it all the way to the Asbury exit of the Garden State Parkway (represent Flint, MI!!!). We are so grateful to everyone for these heroic efforts!! The poster signing for 4-day pass holders will now be on Wednesday at 6pm. The shoe sale will be Wednesday at 7pm. If you are stuck in town... Check back later, we will try to have a get together later if we can ever get anywhere... With sighs and mopes we deliver these sad tidings... -K8
