Well here’s some sucky news, The Apple Stomp II has been postponed for “reasons beyond our control.” This year’s lineup Stubborn All-Stars, The Toasters, Big D, Slow Gherkin, Five Iron Frenzy, Dan P and The Bricks and others were set to play Irving Plaza on May 31st-June 1st. For those who were making plans for the 2-day ska festival will either have to come to NYC to see the (pre-show/after shows) Cake Shop Shows that Asbestos Records is putting on still or find something else to do. The festival will be announcing new details like new dates and potential new venue to play at maybe later this week.
Something was up when the Allstonians posting something the Apple Stomp was postponed and then shortly after, Apple Stomp posted this:
We are very sorry to announce that this years Apple Stomp will be postponed to a future date for reasons beyond our control. We will be announcing the rescheduled dates later this week. For those still planning on traveling to NYC Asbestos Records will be hosting shows on Friday – Saturday – Sunday at CAKE SHOP NYC featuring bands scheduled to play this year’s and Apple Stomp Alumni. The lineups will be announced ASAP.
