Dent May

Bad news, my friends. I'm down with what my doctor now believes to be the dreaded H1N1 flu virus. I was especially bummed to cancel my hometown Halloween show on Saturday, but now I'm sorry to announce the following performances w/ Fiery Furnaces and Cryptacize have been cancelled:

11/4 hoboken, nj
11/5 northampton, ma
11/6 troy, ny
11/7 toronto, on

I'll be back in full force for a special headlining show at Schuba's in Chicago on Tuesday, Nov 10th, and I'll continue on with the Furnaces and Cryptacize to finish out the tour. I can't apologize enough to you guys, and I hope to make it up to the aformentioned cities sooner than later. - Dent May

As noted by the date above (11/4), that Maxwell's show is tonight. According to the venue's website, there is no one replacing him and tickets are still on sale. Feel better Dent!

Tickets are also still on sale for the two shows the Fiery Furnaces are playing in NYC in December (MHOW with Private Income and Bowery Ballroom with opener TBA).

Its very easy to get a cold and flu in upcoming cold months, especially if people don't wash their dirty clothes properly. I once got infected because I shared laundry with my ill room-mate. This is what happens a lot in musical bands - members often share all kind of utilities without being aware of the virus spread.
