Apple Stomp Postponed, Small Venue Shows to Take their Place

We were all bummed on Saturday to hear that The Apple Stomp ska festival in New York City this coming weekend was going to be postponed due to circumstances outside of their control. The good news is that the good people at Asbestos Records and Cake Shop are working together to to have a few smaller shows in place. This should give some solace to the bands that worked their schedules (touring or just getting people together for the reunions) and the fans who arranged travel and accommodations. The really good news is that Cake Shop is a tiny venue on the Lower East Side and promises a much more intimate experience for those who attend. Tickets range from $12-$15. Line-ups and details aren’t final yet, but we’ve gotta cut these guys some slack given the situation.

Here’s what we know so far:

May 30th @ The Cake Shop – NYC 8pm 21+
***super secret headliners*** (hint these musicians both were among the biggest acts of last years stomp.
+ 3 great regional acts.

May 31st @ The Cake Shop – NYC 8pm 21+
Dan P & the Bricks (members of Mu330 & Slow Gherkin)
Sammy Kay & The Fast Four
I Voted for Kodos
Johnny Too Bad & The Strikeouts
The Huxtables (members of Slow Gherkin)
Murphys Kids
And possibly more?

June 1 @ Venue TBA
***super secret headliner from stomp 1***
Slow Gherkin

And more tba.

Here’s the new Facebook Event and here’s the link for tickets. Big ups to Asbestos Records and Cake Shop for making some serious lemonade out of these rotten lemons!

If you’ve already canceled your travel plans, you can still catch Big D & The Kids Table playing a vintage set at Paradise Rock Club on Saturday, May 31st.
