For the last few days, tortured ticket holders for the massive Punk in the Fox concert at Fox Pomona on July 3 have been waiting to see if the show would get the axe or go on as scheduled.
Originally announced last March, the Punk in the Fox line-up was a proverbial smörgåsbord of circle pit pleasure, filled with 11 well-respected bands from past and present. Recently there was internet talk of the show being moved to Redlands, denied by show organizers. Yesterday, a MySpace page set up for the concert announced that event organizers were still in talks with the Fox about whether or not the show would be cancelled. According to them, things were looking up. However, today, the Fox website posts that the show is officially cancelled. Obviously, it's got to be shitty news for Pomona punk fans. But at least it's a definitive answer, right?
In the meantime, check out a little old-school footage from one of the last '70s punk bands on Earth that can claim to sport their original line-up.
