Shows return to former Pinball Jones location
You read correctly. The shows actually go back to the old pinball jones location on West Campus and I live.
At the time, PBJ was THE place. Hosting some of the coolest shows, featuring a fantastic collection of playable pinball machines/arcade machines, and despite serving over 21 drinks, this was one of the few venues for all ages. Everyone was always welcome to join in the fun.

Unfortunately, on March 18, 2020, the West Campus location closed forever, although you can still visit the Old Town PBJ location, despite being strictly a 21+ arcade.
Flash forward a year later and Eco-savingsa locally-run, eco-friendly thrift store, announced the opening of a second location, Functional by Eco-Thriftwhich gave new life to the vacant space.
To celebrate its first anniversary, Funktional has teamed up with Blast N Scrapto host a masquerade-themed launch show featuring The red fear, Flahoolaand Race to Neptunewhich marked local history since these groups were the first to play in this space since the closure of PBJ 2020.
The place had undergone some pretty cool updates. Blast N Scrap the shows are non-profit venues for all ages, so donations are suggested and the shows are always welcome for all members of the community. Functional also stayed open all night giving customers a chance to get their dose of late night savings AND there were some incredibly talented local artists selling their work like Fresha Peppa and Aiko Grease Paint. All of this has been incredibly well documented by @focofanpage on Instagram.
