Chalk Zone is a DIY living room venue located in Cape May, New Jersey. If you’re looking for a place to drink beer, listen to tight ass music, and possibly pet a dog, this is your place. It may be a DIY house venue, but the reviews on Facebook are better than 95% of your town's local business' Yelp reviews. I mean, they have entire walls that you can draw on with chalk. It’s 2017. It’s revolutionary. It's freakin' Chalk Zone, brother.
This show is held by “Loser Casual Booking” who mostly books shows at Chalk Zone in Cape May, NJ. If you’re looking for the address to Chalk Zone, or have booking inquiries, you can email Dijon Justice here - firstname.lastname@example.org.
For this show, it’s Dylan Justice’s 22nd birthday, and he decided to make this a benefit show to help out some other DIY-promotin’ friends over in San Antonio, Texas. Bring some bills. Bring some friends. Support yer scene(s).
INFO ON THE ORGANIZATION WE"RE HELPING OUT!
This show is being organized in an effort to raise funds to be donated to The Land In Between DIY based in San Antonio, Texas. Here is a statement from the group:
'The Land In Between DIY is a vision to create, build, strategize, and foster the capacities of Do-It-Yourself culture in the framework of radical punk, and hardcore music politics. We will be accountable for providing all ages an affordable, youth-accessible, and autonomous proactive space to collaborate for creative arts, music, and other events with locals, and internationals who have shared-knowledge, and values as our San Antonio DIY community. Our anti-colonial principles are influenced by non-hierarchical critical decision-making, anticapitalist resilience, and an ideology of inclusivity and community empowerment by womxn, queer, transfolx, youth, and people of color participants whom have been excluded from unjust institutions.
As a decentralized space from a larger DIY community(ies)... our long term goal is to center those made invisible by encouraging transformative self-worth, and multicultural collective radicalism.'"
The gig is on Wednesday, March 29th, 2017, and doors are at 6:00pm. There’s 6 bands, and they’re all from our beautiful tri-state area. Most bands are from NJ, some are from PA, and one is from NJ, PA, and DE. Organizing practice for them must really suck, so come to this benefit show to make sure it doesn’t suck.
