Nemo

Travelers are already finding Nemo a pain in the butt.

The massive nor'easter has caused a wave of flight cancellations as it prepares to smother the city under up to 14 inches of snow.
United Airlines canceled 900 flights in advance of the storm, and Delta Air Lines crossed off 135, plus more regional flights.

As of Thursday, before Nemo even touched down, Newark Airport had the most Friday cancellations nationally, followed by Boston's Logan Airport, and LaGuardia Airport, according to FlightAware.

Most airlines issued so-called "weather waivers," allowing passengers in the storm-affected areas to change their flight date without paying a change fee.
Gov. Cuomo is opening an emergency operations center to help with "coordinating response efforts using all state and local resources," he said in a statement Thursday. [Daily News]

A winter storm is upon us, fashion week is totally fuct, and other NYC show cancellations are already coming in.

Williamsburg club Union Pool reports:

DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER, [TONIGHT]'S SHOW HAS BEEN CANCELED AND WILL BE RESCHEDULED FOR A LATER DATE:
EXPLORER'S CLUB/MINIBOONE/CHEERS ELEPHANT/HARTWELL LITTLEJOHN. WE APOLOGIZE.
Apology accepted. Hartwell Littlejohn adds:
THIS SHOW WILL BE RESCHEDULED. IF YOU WERE PLANNING TO ATTEND, THANK YOU. WE'LL DO IT AGAIN SOON.
Nemo is all about screaming your cancellations in caps.

Also: tonight's show at the Rock Shop in Park Slope with the Lovehowl + Bangladeafy + Hannah Vs the Many + Luminous Flux "has been canceled due to Nemo."

As of 11am, we haven't heard of any other concert or comedy show cancellations yet, but we'll keep updating the site and this post as things get called off, hopefully not Passion Pit at MSG included. If you know of other postponements, please leave them in the comments.

NOON UPDATE:

Tonight's show at Shea Stadium is CANCELLED.

The early show at Cameo is CANCELLED. UPDATE: The late show is cancelled too.

James T. Cotton (JTC)'s flight was cancelled so can't make it to 285 Kent, but so far the party is still on.

2PM UPDATE:

Holopaw were scheduled to play Knitting Factory and Permanent Records tonight, but the record store just sent out this note:

"Hi all... sorry to say we just got the word from Holopaw that due to this impending storm they aren't gonna make it to NYC tonight and have had to cancel their scheduled in-store performance with us. Darn! Hopefully we'll be able to reschedule, but for now let's just wish them safety in their travels.

As of now we're still planning to be open with normal hours all weekend so if you were planning to come by tonight, that is still an option! It's warm in here!"

UPDATE: Despite what Permanent Records says about the band making it to NYC, the band and venue are currently saying Knitting Factory is still a go.

SOB's reports that "tonight's Salsa Groove event with La Excelencia is canceled and will be rescheduled for a later date."

Naming snow storms now? The weathermen have way to much power over us.

passion pit can get canncelled bc of snow when its really bc of poor ticket sales - nice cover.

you shouldn't call it nemo. it's made up BS.

In my day (10 years ago), a foot of snow led to just smaller crowds, rarely cancellations (bands getting stuck out of town).

If this is because of fear of the weather, then it shows how coddled these yuppie transplants are, that they've turned NYC into the "we can't handle 2 inches" shithouses of suburbia. Congrats.

Sorry old man, they definitely cancelled shows because of weather and/or expected weather 10 years ago. Nice try though...

Right on 12:29, I was on the LIRR on way into NYC for a show and they stopped the train bc of weather - had to get to the show so I got out of the train and just started walking. Finally got to the venue 4 hours later, had missed the show but I showed them.

SnowStorms are likely named now for Added media attention and power over the people creating an entity which people are more weary about, rather then snow storms which were just a part of life.

Named storms conjure the thoughts of Hurricanes.

People spend more at stores and gas stations.

^-_-^

you know what this sounds like?

hey, how can we get the ratings we get when we nut all over ourselves everytime a hurricane hits? i know! let's start naming winter storms and nutting all over those too! the nutting goes all year long!

im so sick of this drama queen bullshit. sit in your apt., drink some beer, and deal with this in the am.

Don't stay in. Go support local music. The bands still playing are dealing with the weather just like you, but playing their asses off for you.

The National Weather Service is not naming the storms. The name comes from a corporate entity, The Weather Channel, trying to cash in on a major storm.

Don't buy into it. Don't use their corporate names.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2013 2:09 PM

Then name asteroids AND storms after porn stars.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2013 2:21 PM

Yeah, it's the weather channel naming this shit. Not the National Weather Service or NOAA. It's completely a weather channel gimmick. Don't allow them to perpetuate this stupidity

are they really going to have this Passion Pit show?

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2013 3:18 PM

Whatever crap was going to be at T5 tonight was canceled.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2013 3:19 PM

passion pit will be less than half full of the already half full it was going to be anyway.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2013 3:25 PM

Doubtful any of these shows can happen. Have any of you actually been outside yet? We have not even gotten close to the brunt of the storm and already it is coming down like mad. This is going to be a brutal one when it is all said and done.

The Wedding Present are heading over to Maxwells so I guess the show is on.

92Y really? I braved about 12 inches of snow to see Grant Hart at 92Y Tribeca in 2008 or 2009, December show. Great night. No talk of cancelling for that.

In my day, we used to trudge through ten feet of snow and wrassle wolverines just to hear the drum solo in inagaddadavida. Or was it wipeout? Nurse, my colostomy bag is full of hummus sausage. It looks like sausage hummus. Mmmmm, sausage hummus.

funny, but I'm talking about 2008, not 1968.

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2013 4:43 PM

Posted by Anonymous | February 8, 2013 4:49 PM
