Death Grips

Death Grips

Death Grips kept their word. They wrote that "there are no longer any scheduled shows", and sure enough they didn't even show up to the one-off gig they had scheduled as part of the Sacramento Electronic Music Festival (aka SEMF) in their hometwon of Sacramento on Saturday night. Are they even telling the truth about needing to finish an album? Nobody seems to know where they are. Their Facebook message was a hit and run. Since our post about it, Music Hall of Williamsburg, the Brooklyn venue Death Grips are scheduled to play in June, even tweeted that they're "still waiting on official word about possible Death Grips cancellation. If show is cancelled we'll issue refunds. Please stay tuned." It's not looking good.

Shlohmo, who is back at Glasslands later this month, did play SEMF 2012 though (as you can see in one of the tweets above). As did Sacramento artists Little Foxes, Paper Pistols, Tel Cairo and the Portisheady Dusty Brown, as you can see in the videos below...

all of your racist comments only further solidifies your ignorance and lack in taste for good music.
