M.I.A. peeps (more by Andrew St. Clair)
MIA

M.I.A.'s free Brooklyn Bowl show will happen on on Wednesday, October 6, 2010 (the day after she plays Boston). A press release reads that "Tickets are on Maya. Venue is 18+ and it will be first-come first-serve to capacity. Doors open at 9.30 p.m. Lining up begins at 7pm that night." M.I.A. also just tweeted the date (thx Mike).

Meanwhile, M.I.A.'s Terminal 5 show happening tonight (9/27) is starting late due to electrical problems. M.I.A. is tweeting about that too. So far we got: "SUP WIT NYC+ME, EDISON POWER SAYZ THE BUILDING CAN SHORT CIRCUT IN THE RAIN! POWRCUT AT VENU/NO SOUNDCHECK/ GENORATOR JUS BLEW 2ND COMIN IN" and "ON THE BUS waiting for city to tell me the status of their power !" and "MIA COMIN BACK WIT POWA POWA /\/\/\y/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\/\\/\/\\\\\\///". I think the last one, which is the most recent one, means that things are looking up.

This is going to be horrific. This is the perfect storm for the worst sound at a concert this decade. Thats not even hipster hyperbole.

lt's face it, she is terrible. stick some hummus in her and it might be tolerable.

i feel bad that there is a child that has to be raised by this woman

looks like her English skills also had a short circuit.

Anyone who types like that isn't worthy of success or the ability to charge $40 for tickets. Still cannot believe she has fans. Stop supporting this shit, morons.

I hope a lightning bolt from the heavens strikes while she's playing Paper Planes and she becomes MIA.

Clusterfuck of the year.

How is that not straighforward? Her nickname is Maya isn't it? And the show is free? 1+1=2 kids.

"How is that not straighforward? Her nickname is Maya isn't it? "

I get it now. I knew it was her name, but read "Tickets are on Maya" like "Tickets are on Ticketmaster", as opposed to Maya is paying for the tickets. post updated. thanks

The best thing about her playing at Brooklyn Bowl is that the snack bar does indeed sell Hummus. But it's $8.50!

say what you will..that is sincerly a very diverse group of people..1 white chick, 1 black chick, 1 black dude, 1 indian chick (maybe just jewish) and 1 latin chick (maybe just jewish too)..

Posted by Anonymous | September 27, 2010 10:01 PM

Yes, that is a diverse crowd... I wonder which one eats hummus most regularly? Any guesses??

Posted by Anonymous | September 27, 2010 10:05 PM

NO FAIR! NO FAIR! M.I.A. how could you? This one was for us, the ones who actually paid $50+ for HARDNYC and deserve the free show!

Im pretty sure it has rained before when there was a show at Terminal 5 and everything was ok, sounds like more bullshit

Posted by Anonymous | September 28, 2010 7:08 AM

So if it rains, the INDOOR venue Terminal 5 cancels its shows. That place is fucking amateur hour.

M.I.A = Missing In Action

Posted by Burg | September 28, 2010 9:03 AM

so... was it definitely cancelled?

Posted by Anonymous | September 28, 2010 9:36 AM

whow, settle down...nothing worng with being a jew. Just would not really be adding to the diversity of the pix...you know, being in nyc and all.

besides, judism is a religon, not an ethnic group..lot of jews just have darker skin. so, she looks indian, but maybe she's just a jew from JAP from LI.

Posted by Anonymous | September 28, 2010 10:06 AM

are you sure of that? have you tried to get married in Israel lately?

you're right about being jewish isn't being that diverse in nyc. but neither is any of those other groups you mentioned.

Judaism is an ethnic group though. read about it.

jews.

am i right?

Posted by Anonymous | September 28, 2010 11:01 AM

All this talk of diversity, jews, and hummus is lame. STEP YOUR GAME UP BOARD...

Oh & how come their isn't a free show in LA after the HARDLA cancellation

Posted by JP | September 28, 2010 1:14 PM

5:35 ^ Defensive Jew is defensive.

hey, 5:35, i wrote the original comment and i'm not jewish -- just pointing out the subtly fucked up logic of jewish not being part of the diversity of nyc or anywhere else for that matter, so fuck off...
