[POSTPONED: March 17, 2020] Anti-Flag / Grade 2 / Doll Skin

indexMarch was going to be a very busy concert month for me.  This was to be the fourth of four shows in five nights.  This show was going to be for me and my son and his friend T.

I had just recently heard about Anti-Flag, who have been around forever.  I was interested in seeing them and then I heard C playing them on his Spotify account so I asked if he wanted to see them.  He said yes.  They were playing at The Foundry, a tiny place that I really like.  But it turned out to be on a night that we had something else planned.  (That turned out to be incorrect, that event was the week before, so we could have gone to the Foundry).  But on this night they were playing in Asbury Park (about the same distance from my house).  House of Independents is a great venue and is arguably a better venue to see a punk show (it’s much bigger).

He asked if his friend could come and I thought that sounded like a great way to spend a Tuesday night (even if school would be very sleepy he next day).  I even told him that if we really liked the show we could go Thursday night as well–to see them in a venue the size of our living room.

Opening for this show were Grade 2 and Doll Skin who I don’t know.

This turned out to be the fourth of dozens of shows cancelled or postponed by the coronavirus.

Obviously, my main concern is for everyone’s safety, including the bands!

My selfish concern though is that once the shows are rescheduled that all of these shows will be scheduled on the same day!

Let’s hope the rescheduled dates also do some social distancing.
