We laughed, we cried, and we all learned a lot, but it appears that Jelly's Rock Beach is no more. After a sparse turnout at the second date of the free concert series held at the Aviator Sports Complex next to the Rockaways, today Jelly redubbed the events "Rock Yard" (which was the title of their series of shows in Williamsburg earlier this year) and moved it to East Williamsburg at The Morgan. We were never able to hit the Slip N Slide this year, but just throw a few trash bags and some Vaseline down on this sunny lot and we'll be in business!
Although the bands appear to have all stayed onboard, it looks like main sponsor Topman has left for greener pastures. Jelly's email blast should soothe the brokenhearted:
We would like to thank everyone showing so much love this summer out at Rock Beach! We love doing what we do and we love you. Our new Rockbeach.us has been updated with some major improvements. We made a few casual decisions and the result couldn't have turned out better :)
