For 5 seasons, Brooklyn has enjoyed their summers because of Jelly. We’ve laughed, danced, slip ‘n slided, made out, gotten rained out, and been beyond hammered in their honor and because of their hard work. We all knew the Pool Parties were coming to an end, but not like this:
We are saddened that we were not given the contractual 24-hour notice of the final cancellation so that we could prepare our partners and bands that have supported this series and were booked for this date. Instead, we were met with calls last night from press entities asking for statements on a press release issued by OSA lawyer and board member Adam Perlmutter only hours after The Open Space Alliance rejected our offer for the non-contractually laid out extraneous fees brought up throughout the course of this summer. [...]
We regret that we are not being allowed for the reasons outlined above to give Brooklyn the “thank you” we’ve been planning all year—our five year anniversary finale show. With all our planned special guests and unannounced surprises, it was sure to be a day no one would soon forget.
After the jump is Jelly’s statement in full about the abrupt ending of the series, along with final words to you for your continued support, as well as couple of checked facts mainly about how much OSA is the worst. Now it’s up to all of us to rage harder than we’ve ever raged before this Sunday, preferably in home made I <3 Jelly shirts. We’ll be there for the next chapter and we’re all excited to see what these awesome kids will come up with next summer. Until then, we’ve got Rock Yard to hold us over– which is filled with good vibes from the days of yore.
