CocoRosie posted the following message on MySpace today
dear lovesAccording to a commenter on Punk News, "some of the band members didnt have work permits to get into the US." Whether that is true or not remains to be seen, but I think it is safe to say that neither Marc Hogan nor Antony were involved in any way. Whether or not Cocorosie or their band met Paris in Jail is also still a mystery.
we are so sorry to announce that we cannot play the rest of the us tour dates
the band got arrested, thats all i can say
we love you all
we are playing a free show in New York on may 19th
please come if you can
