In last week’s GO! Magazine, I wrote about a house show scheduled for tonight featuring Los Angeles punk/metal band ACxDC and a bunch of other bands that was supposed to take place on a property on Bend’s east side.
As of yesterday, the show is not happening in that yard, or even in Bend. It has been moved to Salem. Below is a poster with the address, if you’re interested in making the trip. (Please note: I cannot vouch for any or all of the bands being there and performing. I can tell you that I saw a couple of Facebook comments from ACxDC frontman Sergio Amalfitano indicating that his band would play, and that there has been a swarm of activity on Facebook trying to get all other bands and their gear to the new spot.)
Here’s that poster. Below it is more about why this happened.
So … why the switch? I’m not even going to begin trying to explain why. I’ll let Preston Krull, one of the organizers, explain. Late Monday night, he announced via Facebook that the show was canceled. I’ll paste that announcement below, but it’s worth clicking here to read not only Krull’s message, but also 115 comments worth of Oregon punk and metal fans rallying and scrambling to keep this show alive.
