Killswitch Engage Booked For Second CBGB Festival
Now, I will definitely be attending the CBGB Festival, which is set for this weekend.
Killswitch Engage have been announced as a last minute addition to the second annual festival, which goes down at Santo’s Party House in New York Saturday.
Killswitch will be honoring the CBGBs spirit with a special, intimate show at Santos Party House, making it one that New York area fans and festivalgoers won’t want to miss.
“I am excited to be a part of the CBGB fest,” declares Jesse Leach, frontman for the band and GSA columnist.
“The music that came out of the early punk and hardcore scene changed my life and CBGBs was a big part of that scene,” he says. “Playing a smaller intimate venue like Santos Party House gives us a chance to change stuff up and give fans a different KsE show with a diversified set list. Saturday will be a night to remember!”
Proceeds from the show will be donated to The Fuck Cancer Foundation, an organization whose mission is to fight cancer by raising awareness and to educate about early cancer detection, ultimately putting an end to late-stage cancer diagnoses.
Eye Ra Haze will also be playing.
Tickets go on sale tomorrow, October 8, at 10 a.m.
Get ‘em here for $25.
Doors will be at 6 p.m., which is fucking rad.
