Punk/indie concert at Embassy Vinyl in Scranton on Nov. 7 benefits robbery victims
If there’s one thing you can count on in the Northeastern Pennsylvania music scene, it’s the generosity of its musicians.
Ralph Castner and Courtney Passikoff, who run Lonesome Waltz Records from their bedroom in South Philadelphia, were recently robbed and lost thousands of dollars in personal possessions. The independent record company has produced cassette tapes for several bands from NEPA and Philly, so now musicians are giving back with a benefit show at Embassy Vinyl (352 Adams Ave., Scranton) on Saturday, Nov. 7.
Doors open at 7:30 p.m., and the music starts at 8 p.m. Admission is $5, and all proceeds directly go to Castner and Passikoff. Those who can’t make it can also support the couple through GoFundMe.
The lineup includes:
Old Charades (Scranton/Philadelphia punk rock)
Better Days (Wilkes-Barre acoustic emo/indie)
Sad Boys (Philadelphia pop punk/emo)
