Welcome to Ashley to Reunite for One-Off Show

Chicago post-punk group Welcome to Ashley will be reuniting for a one-off show at Township (formerly Pancho's), 2200 N California, on Friday, March 16.

WTA was building steam after the release of 2010's Beyond the Pale when drummer Sherrlia Bailey had to leave the band to take care of a family matter. The remaining members (Coley Kennedy, Pete Javier and Jeremy Barrett) soldiered on with The Buddies, an Irish punk side project.

Several weeks ago, The Buddies drummer, Kim Collins, was diagnosed with breast cancer (there is an online fundraiser here), and Welcome to Ashley decided to step in for the Township gig, which was originally offered to The Buddies.

WTA will be joined by Pistols at Dawn and Fly Over State at Township, and the group will be interviewed on WLUW on Thursday, March 15, at 7PM.
