(As just posted) Kristeen Young dropped off the Morrissey tour. Her voice is shot.

UPDATE: Minutes after I posted that Vetiver ARE opening for Morrissey, Vetiver sent out a second message. Now they are NOT opening for Morrissey....

Subject: ok...now this is just plainly ridiculous

hey everybody....

ok, so....basically we just got a call a half hour ago to find out that we in fact ARE NOT now opening for Morrissey after all. as it turns out, friends of his, a NYC band called "Girlfriend In A Coma" are now opening up the shows, and
Morrissey has apparently apologized and told us that he is "very, very sorry",
that he likes Vetiver very much, but that "it just doesn't make sense".

you're telling me!

so anyway, no hard feelings, we're all actually very excited to head home and get some rest, and i'm sure all of this will be for the best.

tour w/ Morrissey? we Never Had No One Ever!

love to you all,

Vetiver

Continued below.....

here is the whole original post when they were playing......

Vetiver just opened for the Shins at Terminal Five (twice). Now Vetiver has been asked to open the next four Morrissey shows. Vetiver sent out a cute message with more details, so here it is:

Subject: How the heck did this happen???

We're still trying to figure it out, but Vetiver has been invited to open up 4 shows for Morrissey a.k.a. "THE MOZ" in New York and Boston! I know, right? CRAZY!
We think there still may be tickets available online.

Shows are:
10/26 Hammerstein Ballroom - New York, NY
10/27 Hammerstein Ballroom - New York, NY
10/28 Hammerstein Ballroom - New York, NY
10/30 Orpheum Theater - Boston, MA

Thanks to everyone who came out to see us play with the Shins this past week. We had an awesome time! We'll try to post some pictures on our website, www.vetiverse.com.

Also, Andy will be playing guitar and singing with Devendra Banhart across Europe in November...check Devendra's MySpace for details.

Love,
Vetiver

There are still tickets online. In fact, now the Boston shows have been reduced to $20 (thx John!) (also).

Pylon have some NYC shows coming up too.

i would have much rather had Vetiver open the boston show than girl in a coma.

Vetiver are the hippie/folk equivalent of Kristeen Young's voice: BORRRRING!!! Girl in a Coma (from San Antonio,Tx) are a much better live act!!! Great songs, great vocals!!
