Back To School Jam 2017 drama, new lineup

Back To School Jam 2017 GameChangerWorld
As you may recall, Back To School Jam 2017 was announced last month and had been slated to take place on September 9 at Starland Ballroom in Sayreville, NJ. However, following drama between agents, promoters, and venues, the event has been moved to GameChangerWorld in Howell and will now feature an entirely different lineup. The new roster can be viewed below.

Regarding the change of venues, organizer Greg Falchetto had this to say: "Truth be told a lot of things got messed up through all of this. I liked the idea of having a mixed bill and seeing hardcore bands get to play to a bigger audience but my attempts failed and I wanted to go back to what I am personally comfortable with. I appreciate everyone at Starland Ballroom for how insanely helpful they were however this is what should have happened from the start. For those that purchased tickets already those refunds are being processed and you will need to purchase a new ticket for the event."

Meanwhile, GameChangerWorld has posted a lengthly explanation, during which the venue assails agent Brad Wiseman (The Story So Far, State Champs, Emmure, etc.) for "overstepping his boundaries and rights as such." According to GameChangerWorld, "Mr. Wiseman believed it was in his best interest to strong arm Greg Falchetto and Back To School Jam to reflect a line up that included only his artists, a move to Starland Ballroom supported to swing the show away from GameChangerWorld where the event originated and has seen years of success. Brad Wiseman, single handledly forced every credible hardcore and scene act away from this bill, to protect his own personal roster, and those within his companies."

Back in 2015 seminal hardcore and punk rock fest collectively known to fans and tentatively titled the "Back in School and We Jammin it all Night Boys!" Fest was shook to its core when Gary "care bare" was indicted on abuse. His lawyer Gregory Falsetto stated "a tornado of Chinese whispers flooded my client brain, causin him to go insane as the Chinese accented voices took hold of his insane mind"
Care barry was found guilty on 6 charges, electric chair his family survives

To make matter woRse, that same day drummer "TOM ANDERSON" of seminal legacy act "CROSSFIT" was beat to a bloody pup. It was a major blow to the hardcore punk rock scene and says LIFELESS frontman, "these thing happen, and it did happen, to TOM ANDERSON". The hit was carried out by all the members of legendary hardcore rock acts- SUBUBURAN SCUM and punk rock veterans HEAVY CHAIN

Scene act is a genre of hardcore rock with its roots in the hardcore sand pit. Know for soaring leads and a aggressive rhythm section, while the bass is known to hold down the low end! Vocalists are known for their handsome, boyish looks while they reputation in the 'scene' is determined by they pimp status and street knowledge, the more hoes in ones warped tour march stable, the bigger billing on the next tour package! :)

While they music is a mix of 80 synth pop, 70 disco and 90s hip hop, the aesthetic is more a mix bag, with styles ranging from cowboy look all the way to "pbr dad" providing influence for the scene look! :) check out the next "Taste the chaos" tour for an example of the hard hitting snares coupled with the signature bravado providing by the celestial tone of schecter guitar research! Seminal hardcore legacy act "Jonny Craig" coined the term 'scene' on his single "dance Gavin dances"

While the boisterously crude slipnot brain child "Sean the clown" made a name for himself in the early 80s underground EDM scene, acts like MCR, marlen Manson and cult icon Reba of coded orange fame forged they own musical scene, a rejection of the corporate sterileness made famous by Sean clown and close friend, Corey tyler on they single "hope is gone now". Those 3 spearheaded the scene movement of the 2000s. Shifting the industry onto a different position, like on they head

Since Joe Hardcore chimed in on a lot of the posts on facebook to defend his sh*tty friend, Greg aka Pikachu. Figure I'd ask here, will Back To School Jam feature any LARP'ing? Or does Joe HxC have to go to a Alt-Right Nazi rally that day?
