Extract from a press release:
Wilkes-Barre’s concert hall Karl Hall reopens in January, which means Barnstorm Booking is returning as well.
The local promoter’s first gig since February 2020 will be a release show for “When It’s Over,” the new four-song EP from the Plains pop punk group Into Sunday, on Friday, January 7th.
“We are a group from Plains, PA. We formed about five years ago and we do mostly emo / pop punk music. We really love to play and make music together. It really binds us all together, and we all really love it, ”the group told NEPA Scene.
“As for the show, this will be our first show in a while, and it’s our first since our EP was released in November, so we’re really excited and ready to knock the house down with this one!”
The other pop punks Second Suitor, Stay Loud and Starving Hysterical Naked will open the show for all ages.
“All we can say is it’s good to be back. We can’t wait to play with everyone again. It’s been a long time and we’ve all missed you, ”said Brian Kelly, owner of Barnstorm Booking.
The doors to Karl Hall (57B N. Main St., Wilkes-Barre) open at 6:30 p.m. and music begins at 7 p.m. Tickets, which cost $ 10, can be purchased at the door. This event is BYOB for ages 21 and over. Proof of vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours of the show is required to attend. For more information, see the Facebook event page.
Second Suitor is a punk rock trio from Binghamton who embody the high energy of 90s pop punk. Melodic with an overall positive attitude behind their music, their performances never lack energy and good vibes.
“I’m glad to be back in concerts and happy to be back at Karl Hall after two and a half years. Be careful, get vaxxed and wear a mask. Sprinkles, ”they said.
Stay Loud is a Wilkes-Barre-based band that has been playing strong punk rock music in the region since 2017.
“Last year we mainly focused on recording a new album and we didn’t play a lot. We are delighted to return to Karl Hall! It’s one of our favorite places, and the shows are always a lot of fun!
Starving Hysterical Naked are an indie punk group “based on the poorest households of the small, upper-middle-class town of Mountain Top, PA,” they described.
“After a long and terribly dormant between announcements of new strains of coronavirus, we are extremely excited to play our first show in over a year and release new material in support of the excellent talent around us.”
