In addition the Eric Hutchinson show scheduled for Monday, 10/29/12 has also been cancelled and will be rescheduled for a later date."

I called Bowery and said " I assumed tonight's concert is cancelled" they said no. Figures SWANS wouldnt be afraid of a little thing like the Wrath of God. How can I get there from Washington Heights and make it back without cab money.

Bowery Presents are dick heads for doing this. The show will be half empty tonight and tomorrow when the storm is full blast they will be forced to cancel.

If you have a ticket and you cannot get there tonight just call ticketmaster and they will give you a refund.

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2012 5:32 PM

Every other bowery presents show is canceled or postponed, so it's clearly Gira who is insisting the show go on.

Posted by Anonymous | October 28, 2012 5:39 PM

Will tomorrows show @ MHOW be on? If so, perhaps we can use our tickets for tonight to attend tomorrow?

Posted by x | October 28, 2012 5:41 PM

Well then Gira is a dick head. Also, you can pretty much bet 5:41 that tomorrow's will not be on. The storm is supposed to be the heaviest at that point making Gira's wishes moot.

He is after all a cowardly homosexual, so should be no surprise when it happens. Not to me anyway.

...Yet I'm sure your office that is still open is in the city, and that you live in the city, or have a car to get out of the city (if you don't live there), and can probably spend the night there if you had to.... but most of all, I'm sure your office doesn't have a sold out live show that more than 1/2 of the ticket holders cannot get to. So what's your point?

From some guy's twitter who is there:

Swans set-up at Bowery Ballroom with currently empty sold-out show. http://instagr.am/p/RWKNSRq7s1/


Fuck you BP and Gira. It's not about being tough. It is about caring about the safety of the people who bought tickets and the realization of what the situation is out there.

Yes and we all hope its not a bad storm hurricane but the truth is that the NOAA and other weather centers have said NYC is due for a bad storm.

I am a grown woman, not a "men"... And my name isn't Sally, silly boy... You are a very fortunate soul that you are able to walk there and then home. ALMOST ALL OF US CANNOT. Enjoy the show for all the rest of us... and post it on youtube. I want to see how many were able to get there.

Posted by cemeterri | October 28, 2012 9:40 PM

I read this blog regularly and I do t even k ow what this so called "buckeye shrimper" is.

I mean, I really enjoy the comment section and also enjoy obtaining the occasional hummus recipe, but this shrimping buckeye thing is basically as lame as the comment-bots from Nigeria.

1:13 = one of buckeye's multiple personalties. Another one of them is a sausage rocker from Brooklyn. Pray for buckeye.

They really should have either cancelled the show or honored tickets. I don't give a fuck about bad weather, but the lack of mass transit means pretty much no one could get to the show unless they leave nearby or found a cab. And even then, might not be worth it for most folks.

Bowery should do the right thing and stop being cocksuckers. And Swans should book another show that honors those tickets (even the folks who did go tonight).

^ Why don't you just cry about it? I'm sure it'll make a difference.

Amirite?

1:46 so now Swans should play a free show for you because you're an entitled kidult who never grew up and bought a personal vehicle? Because becoming a self-reliant adult (who's independence isn't at the mercy of a "down" mass transit system) is just asking too much of you, I guess? That's fucking precious. Swans were at the show, right? Then why weren't you?

LOL, just think of the money you payed as a small reimbursement for all the music you've stolen from them on the internet over the last ten (plus) years.

I mean, we can all assume you've been steadily fucking them over for years, right? Then why can't they fuck you back just a little bit?

3:57.... So then were you at the show? I fucking hope so....

Quit fucking whining, you fucking trust-fund babies. It's a concert. There are people dying right now from shit they have no control over. G E T O V E R Y O U R S E L V E S.

I understand both sides of the argument. I know swanswere already at the venue and the logistics of rescheduling would be a tremendous pain in the as. all the same tho, from where I live and back in a cab would cost me eighty bucks I don't have and walking would take me about eight hours. I just wish there could have been a better solution, ive been looking forward to this show for months

Despite many of these snarky comments, bummed ticket holders should simply complain to Ticketmaster that the show went on despite the mass transit shutdown and NYC being declared in an official state of emergency and you will get a refund. Ticketmaster would rather do that than deal with disgruntled customers and potential bad press.

^ hahahahaha. i'm sure that's exactly what customer-friendly Ticketmaster will do. Good call.

10:37 has been nominated to the BV Troll Post Hall Of Fame.
Nice one, my good man. I found it to contain just right amount of false empathy, possible truth/reasonable doubt, and helpful non-suggestion. Really a master at work here, kids.

Only mass transit was shut down. The roads were still open. Just drive, no excuse. It wasn't hard to park near the Bowery, but local residential parking spots might be hard to find since few people were driving.

the festival loses tons of appeal if they leave the polo grounds. the venue is why most people go!
