Save the Saint Asbury Park’s coolest club! UPDATE
This damn virus is hurting us all. We were upset to hear that the Saint Asbury ‘s independent rock club was thinking about selling. Unfortunately, clubs are going to be one of the last businesses to reopen. The Saint is owned by Scott & Meg, not a big corporation with deep pockets. Luckily, their bartender Marguerite set up a Go Fund Me page to raise the funds to get them through.
UPDATE: It is now over 5 months later, and the Saint still needs your help. The funds raised by Marguerite’s page got the Saint through the last few months, but have been depleted by rent and other expenses. But good news: if you can help this time; you get some cool Saint swag if you donate! “Donations of $25 will receive a classic Saint T-shirt. Donations $55 and up a pullover Saint hoodie. Donations $100 to 500 and more, a VIP pass to shows we host, a Saint hoodie, t-shirt and a surprise.” The new Go Fund Me page can be found here. Hopefully the club can reopen with larger capacity soon. But wouldn’t you hate to see them close and not have done anything about it? So even if you gave last time, reach in and give them a little more. I did.
Scott from the Saint is one of the reasons I decided to move my store here. We’ve been friends for years, since before he opened the Saint, and even before the days of his prior venture, T-Birds Cafe. He is major supporter of the independent music scene, and any city that has a venue like this is worth investing in.
Scott helped with my grand opening celebration in A.P., arranging for Richard Bacchus of D Generation to play a set at the party. The Saint has been our home for the Asbury Park Mardi Gras Masquerade Ball for the last 2 years. They’ve always been there to host numerous fundraisers for organizations in need. Now they need us.
Asbury Park without the Saint is unacceptable. Please donate to this good cause & help keep Asbury Park cool! Save the Saint!
