Aesop Rock in Austin, August 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
More Hurricane Sandy concert cancellations, though this doesn’t affect a New York show, bad news from Aesop Rock:
***After consulting with venues, agents, managers, promoters, etc – due to the weather emergency, tonight will be the last show of this tour.
We WILL play NC tonight, but VA, MD, MA, VT, RI, CT are going to be postponed. Check the venue sites for updates.
We don’t know if we could make it to the cities, or make it out, or if y’all could make it to the shows. As is – some of us can’t get home.***
A list of affected tour dates are below, and you can check out pics of Aesop Rock’s show at Austin’s Mohowk from back in August here.
In happier Rhymesayers hip hop news, we’re glad to report that P.O.S.‘s kidney transplant fund has exceeded its $25,000 goal and you can still donate to help. The emergency transplant forced the rapper to cancel his fall tour which would’ve hit Irving Plaza on November 7.
