Caleb Scofield (Cave-In, etc) killed in automobile accident; fundraiser launched to benefit his family

This is a truly devastating story to have to write for myriad reasons, but Caleb Scofield, bass player for seminal Boston-area post-hardcore band Cave In (as well as founding member of Zozobra with Cave In’s Adam McGrath and he was bassist for Old Man Gloom and probably a few other bands I’m missing right now) as killed in a single car accident in his home state of New Hampshire yesterday. He was thirty-nine years old.

The horrific crash occurred at the northbound tollbooth of the Everett Turnpike in Bedford, a location that yours truly has passed through an incalculable number of times over my several decades in the area. He left behind a wife, Jen, and two children (Desmond, age 10, and Sydney, age 7). A YouCaring page has been set up in their name here; please consider helping out.

Rest in power, Caleb. You’ll be deeply missed.

 



Fat Mike Announces “Camp Punk in Drublic” Festival with N

Nofx’s Fat Mike has announced the first edition of a new music festival. The event is called Camp Punk in Drublic and will be a three day celebration of punk rock, craft beer, and general debauchery. It will be held on the first weekend of June, from the Friday through until Sunday in Legend Valley, Thornville, OH.

Comprising the line up will be many Fat Wreck favourites plus a few other legendary punk rock bands. These will include: Nofx, Rancid, Goldfinger, Pennywise, Lagwagon, The Bouncing Souls, Face to Face, and many more. There will also be various other attractions such as flea markets, funfairs, and camp fire stories from the likes of Jello Biafra, Eric Melvin, and Mike himself.

Fat Mike had the following to say about his new venture:

“The thing about camping is that really nothing can go wrong, because everything is already wrong. Punk rockers don’t really know how to camp. They know how to wear hoodies, drink, and lean on each other… 

“…Let me be clear: A rabbi, a priest and a few thousand punk rockers go camping in Ohio…Sorry, no punchline. But there will be 17 great bands, 2 mediocre bands, and 5,000 kegs of beer. What could possibly go wrong?”

If you’re interested in attending the first Camp Punk in Drublic, head over to the official website to check out all the details.

It’s weird we’ve been gone for 8 years and when I started writing in November 2017 it felt fucking good, I guess that’s all thats matters.”
