If you were planning on seeing the veteran NYC ska band The Slackers Tuesday at Mountain’s Edge in Bend, you’re out of luck. It’s not happening.
I know. I’m bummed, too.
The show appeared solidly booked for a long time, but in the past few days, I spoke to Ben Mann (who originally booked the gig) and Mountain’s Edge General Manager Buck Bales (who took over the deal when Mann stepped away a while back) and both said it’s officially, assuredly canceled.
The reason? A mishmash of miscommunication too murky to bother with here. Over the last several days, though, I’ve seen quite a bit of chatter about the show online, so I thought it was worth some Frequency ink to make sure everyone’s clear: No Slackers in Bend Tuesday night.
ALSO: Tonight’s show at Mountain’s Edge by California ska/punk band the Voodoo Glow Skulls is still on. There’s been some confusion on this one, too, but it is happening, and it’s happening tonight. Things will kick off around 8 p.m. with openers Tuck And Roll and Danger Death Ray, and cover is $10.
