After a while of silence, Brooklyn-based band On The Fifty announced that they are taking a break from music. However, they have announced a final show at the Knitting Factory on Saturday, March 29th, supported by fellow Brooklyn band, August on Sunday. You can grab tickets to the show here, and you can find the band’s statement after the insert.
As you may have been expecting after a long time going under the radar, this is it. Our last show. After some good years of playing amazing shows with amazing bands, making a record that we are all proud of, and having an awesome time being able to play for friends, family, and fans, we feel that it is time to quiet things down.
Unfortunately, music is something that takes a very special level of commitment, and in a situation where four people are not on the same page but still have great love for one another, this is what we have decided.
You never know though. Maybe there will be a change of heart. And we’re always open to the idea of playing music if the opportunity happens to come up. But right now we have to officially step away and be happy with what we have done and thank anyone and everyone who has ever shown us an ounce of support.
Luckily you guys are in for a treat though. Our boys in August On Sunday will be playing with us, and we can’t think of anyone else we’d rather have help us out shut down the Knitting Factory in our hometown of Brooklyn.
Other bands TBA.
