Jens Lekman @ MHOW in 2011 (more by Amanda Hatfield)

Jens Lekman, whose upcoming Brooklyn show with Of Montreal was moved from Williamsburg Park to McCarren Park, now reports:

"Regarding Northside Festival in NY this Friday - Me and my band had unexplained difficulties with our visas resulting in the band not being able to make it. This is very frustrating to me as I have been rehearsing with the band for weeks and we were going to perform a whole new set. Neverthless, I was able to find a way to make it by myself. So instead I will be doing a solo acoustic set before Of Montreal and YOU will have to be my band. I'll do some classics, you sing along, we'll have a good time. "
$37.58 tickets are still on sale or you can get in with your Northside Badge.

The BrooklynVegan showcase, which will have openers announced shortly, is also that same night at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Caveman and Frankie Rose. Tickets are also still on sale (or stop by with your Northside Badge).

I feel like more and more bands are having visa issues these days.

This sucks hard. But it makes it easier to skip Of Montreal.

Yeah, you wouldn't want to give everyone more than 48 hours notice of who is playing your showcase. It's not like people are planning their festival schedule in advance or anything.
