"Maxwell's, come on! Don't let me down, LCs!" - Anonymous

Los Volcanes

"As ash continues to belch into the atmosphere from Iceland's now world-famous Eyjafjallajokull volcano, stranding thousands of travelers around the globe, two main questions are: How long will the eruption last, and could it eventually affect the world's climate?

Unfortunately, scientists appear uniform in their uncertainty.

"We don't know how long this eruption will go on," says Stefan Wastegard, a geologist who studies ancient ash falls from Icelandic volcanoes at Stockholm University in Sweden. "That's the problem with volcanic eruptions, you really don't know how they're going to go.""
[USA Today]

The other problem with volcanic eruptions is that they totally mess with bands' ability to travel the world freely. After already being forced to cancel their Friday night Culture Shock show, Los Campesinos! have announced they also won't make it in time for Saturday's show with Cymbals Eat Guitars at Maxwell's either.

Luckily they have some free time in their schedule though (LC! are scheduled to play Toronto on April 20th and Irving Plaza in NYC on April 22nd), because they're going to make up the NJ show on Wednesday, April 21st. All tickets from Saturday will be honored, and I assume there will be refunds and new tickets opening up as well.

Their tour is with NYC's Cymbals Eat Guitars who are still scheduled to appear, earlier in the day, at Generation Records this Saturday (unlike Walter Schreifels who was forced to cancel because of the volcano). (thx Adam & Chris & Chris)

Stay tuned for more Volcano updates as we hear about them.

Volcano, let me guess a "man-made" source of climate change? Damn, if only I recycled more the World would have been safe from hot, molten lava!

I always knew it was a blast in Iceland, especially with their nice thermal pools.

First your economy collapses and now you can't keep your volcanoes under control. WTF Iceland! How about you get your shit together and stop embarrassing yourself.

OK lets be nice to Iceland and the glaciers, volcanoes, and the damn economy.

Too many folks are inhaling the mercury from those phony spiral energy saver light bulbs.

Bands that don't travel due to volcanic eruptions are pussies!

Folks--going to Hoboken is really about the same as going to Williamsburg. Yes, there's a bit of a walk involved, but it's not a big deal. Particularly when you consider the band playing there traveled from across the sea--you can make it across the river.

I wish the PATH train could drop you off in some other place in Hoboken besides the main train terminal. Way too far from Maxwell's.

Just so everyone knows, cabs in Hoboken cost $5 anywhere in the city. You can get one right outside of the PATH station and it will take 2 minutes to get to Maxwell's
