Volcanic ash from Iceland severely disrupted air traffic across Europe for a second day on Friday, causing the cancellation of some 17,000 flights, according to the intergovernmental body that manages European air travel.

Eurocontrol said it expected around 11,000 flights to take place Friday, in contrast to the normal 28,000. The impact will last at least another 24 hours, Eurocontrol said Friday morning.

The ash has spread to parts of northern and eastern Europe and has forced the closure of some of Europe's busiest airports, causing more disruption to worldwide air travel than 9/11. -[CNN]

One unexpected consequence of this volcanic ash situation? Shrinebuilder won't be able to make it to Tilburg today to play the Roadburn Festival. That sucks for The Netherlands, but ends up being great for those of us (also) stuck here! The band was attempting to fly out of NYC, so they've decided to add a last minute show at Europa in Brooklyn TONIGHT (4/16). Tickets will be $10 and are on sale now and at the door. Show is all ages. 7pm. Get stoked!

This is the first example we've heard of the volcano actually causing the addition of a show in the United States. Los Campesinos! couldn't fly which means no show at Purchase tonight, and The Cribs have had to cancel their appearance at Coachella today. Other artists are in jeopardy of missing the west coast fest still too.

Roadburn runs through Sunday. So far Jesu also had to cancel for the same reason. They were replaced by Church of Misery. More about that fest shortly.

Shrinebuilder recently played the Scion Rock Fest in Ohio and before that NYU.

Scenic email said show is at 8pm - 7pm might be doors...

Hey all! I spoke with Scenic directly, he said 7PM doors.

There's something else scheduled at 10 that Europa is charging for, so I would guess Shrinebuilder will be done playing by 9:30.

I just heard from someone who spoke to the booker (second hand but still reliable) they got a last minute opener.

7 doors
8 opener
9 Shrinebuilder

I will say with 100% accuracy that curfews at Europa for live shows begin at 10:30. So that is NOT right.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2010 3:51 PM

curfews? do you think this is outside? I've been at many shows there that ended well after 10:30, some that didn't even start then.

there is no curfew on dancing to shitty music!!!

All weekend shows have to end by 10:30, or at least thats the plan

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2010 4:32 PM

Well and good, but if they have something else scheduled at 10:00 that they are charging for they will want the other group and fans out before that start time...

stop arguing about the curfew!

Everyone is on the same page...whether the formal curfew is 10 or 1030 they have an event planned for 10 tonight.

How hard will it be to get Shrinebuilder off the stage by 10? They have one album.
