Probably because it hasn't been promoted really at all. I would imagine that the presales were too low to afford the event cost. Lineup was so bad ass too.

On a good note for people, The Promise Ring is now playing the First Unitarian Church.

And Warped is the next day, no one wants to die from heat exhaustion two days in a row.

As long as they don't cancel or move the Chicago date I'll be ok.

Thats weird that it is not promoted well there. In Chicago there are flyers and posters everywhere. They even had a huge tent at Warped. This event may just work better running like Lollapolooza where its just in Chicago.

i remember seeing a flyer at the GK tour back in april and havent heard a thing outside of AP since. I dont know why it wasnt hyped up more.. its not as good of a lineup as Chicago's. but its not AWFUL. I think Philly's too busy being all stoked about that Jay-Z concert festival thing.

Most of the bands involved plan to play shows in Philadelphia that day to make it up, apparently.

Such a bummer, had a ticket too. Nothing like getting all pumped on seeing Refused & The Promise Ring and then being let down.

Really bummed about this. I had won free tickets, I wonder if those will still apply when it's rescheduled.
