NJ ska / post-hardcore blenders Folly recently gave their 2006 sophomore album Resist Convenience (originally released on Triple Crown) its first ever vinyl release via the band’s current label home, Bad Time Records, and now they’re celebrating the reissue with a home state show on June 21 at Crossroads in Garwood. Their old friends Paulson are reuniting for the first time in 12 years to open, and the show also has support from three great newer NJ bands, indie-punks Teenage Halloween, fellow ska / post-hardcore-blending Bad Time Records band The Best of the Worst (who take clear influence from Folly and released a split with them in 2022), and hardcore band Silk Sheets. Tickets are on sale now.

We are incredibly proud to announce the Resist Convenience LP reissue party, which will take place on Friday, June 21, 2024 at @crossroadsgarwoodnj in Garwood, NJ. We are even more excited to let everyone know that our brothers and oldest band-friends in @paulsonisaband will be making an exceptionally rare appearance. This will be their first show in 12 years and we honestly can’t wait! We’ve toured the country together, played countless shows together, and those guys are integral to our existence over the years. @alexburton5000 and @jesseburton put out the For My Friends EP in 2001 on their label. Jesse did the original artwork for Resist Convenience as well as countless shirt designs over the years, so it’s one of those real full-circle moments for us. Also joining us will be some of our current Jersey faves in @teenagehalloween @thebestoftheworstnj and @silksheetshxc. DO NOT MISS IT! Hire your babysitters now. The ticket link is live so get on it ASAP. Crossroads is a small room and space is very limited. Join us! As always, thank you and love you. Head to the bio for what’s really good.
