You’ll still be able to see Chromeo this weekend (we think) but due to financial disputes between Open Space Alliance (OSA) and JellyNYC the Delorean show scheduled for 8/29 ain’t gonna happen. Here’s what OSA has to say about the matter:
“We are deeply disappointed that the August 29th show has been canceled due to the continuing unmet financial obligations of the event’s promoter, Jelly. OSA can no longer cover both the costs of putting on these events—equipment, labor, and payments to the State for use of their park — and Jelly’s substantial debt. Our primary concern is improving open space in North Brooklyn, and we will not endanger our mission by putting the finances and reputation of our organization at risk by allowing Jelly to slide on its financial obligations.”
This of course sucks. The Pool Parties have become a Williamsburg tradition and we will hate to see them end. We’ll post Jelly’s side of the story as soon as we hear from them.
