August Burns Red, Punchline are the first acts announced for Altar Bar send-off


The beginning of the end is upon us: Today Altar Bar announced the first round of shows for its "Farewell & 10 Year Anniversary Series."

Metalcore outfit August Burns Red will play two nights at the converted church venue, July 25 and 26.

Local acts Greywalker (July 25) and Arcane Haven (July 26) will serve as support. Tickets for those shows go on sale June 22 at noon. Well-loved Pittsburgh-based pop punk band Punchline will play 37 Everywhere in its entirety July 29 with support yet to be announced.

"We're considering the whole remaining schedule at Altar Bar the Farewell Series but are adding a handful of very special performances," Says Drusky vice president/partner Josh Bakaitus. "We're hustling to get as many awesome shows booked as possible within a short period of time."

After a 10-year run, Altar Bar will close it's doors as a music venue at the end of July, with a new tenant lease starting Aug. 1. More concert announcements are still to come for the farewell concert series: you can keep track of them at Drusky's website
