White Lung at Bowery Ballroom 4/20/2013 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Bummer: White Lung have canceled tonight's (4/25) Empty Bottle appearance. You you'd like a refund you can call TicketWeb at 866.777.8932. The other bands on the bill -- Magic Milk and Polish Gifts -- are still playing and they're currently looking for a third band.
UPDATE: Catchy garage punks Meat Wave have been added to the bill.
UPDATE: Michelle issued a statement.
As mentioned on BrooklynVegan, Billboard reports:
Michelle Shocked has gone silent after a homophobic rant at a San Francisco concert Sunday night that has left her without a U.S. tour. Ten out of eleven of her upcoming concert dates have been canceled by the venues themselves, Billboard has confirmed.Michelle is no longer completely silent on the matter, but almost all of her upcoming shows have been cancelled by the promoters including May 5th at SPACE. The Evanston club wrote on Facebook:
Clubs from Santa Cruz, CA to Evanston, IL have pulled Shocked from their schedules. Meander's Kitchen in Seattle nixed her April 26th show "due to her homophobic performance in San Francisco last night, during which she actually said 'God Hates Fags,'" the club wrote on Facebook. [Billboard]
Many of you have reached out already following an ugly rant given by Michelle Shocked at her show in San Francisco last night. After speaking with the promoter of that show about the nature of the remarks, it's clear that this is no longer a show we're willing to put our name on. The May 5th performance at SPACE has been cancelled and refunds will be issued at point of purchase.UPDATE: Michelle issued a statement.

Morrissey @ Radio City Music Hall, October 2012 (more by Chris La Putt)
Morrissey can't seem to play a Chicago show without postponing at least once. In all seriousness though, the guy has been battling illness over the past few months, including a bleeding ulcer, Barrett's Esophagus, and double pneumonia. As you may recall, Moz was slated to finally play The Chicago Theatre on March 23. That show, and all other North American tour dates, have now been canceled. Official fan site True to You report that these dates will NOT be rescheduled.

M. Ward @ The Vic (more by Sarah Frankie Linder)
First Morrissey, and now M. Ward, who says:
Due to illness M. Ward has been forced to cancel his upcoming appearance at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame series, Roll Over Beethoven: The Life and Music of Chuck Berry on October 27th at Playhouse Square's State Theater in Cleveland.Feel better M!
He has also canceled his upcoming October 25th show at Park West in Chicago. Refunds available at point of purchase. Last Sunday's postponed Los Angeles performance at the Orpheum Theatre is now rescheduled for February 7, 2013. Tickets for the October 21st date will be honored for February 7th.
Unable to fly last week due to doctor's orders, Ward is on his way to a full recovery and is deeply disappointed that he won't be able to complete these scheduled performances in Chicago and Cleveland.
In a statement released on Monday he said, "Out of millions of lead guitar players in the world, Chuck Berry stands alone as a true inventor of the artform. Everyone who plays guitar is indebted to his creations whether or not they realize it. "Roll Over Beethoven" is a perfect song - one that we recorded a few years ago, released this year and continue to play every chance we get. I am honored to have been given an opportunity to share a stage with Mr. Berry but, unfortunately, a stupid virus has kept me home in bed. I'll be there in spirit."
Hum @ A.V. Fest 2011 (more by Matt Ziegler)
As mentioned, Sleigh Bells were one of the many acts slated to perform at the 2012 Pygmalion Music Festival in Champaign-Urbana, IL next weekend. Due to "a recently sustained injury," SB have been forced to cancel their appearance at the fest. Taking their place as the opening night headliners at the Canopy Club, are Champaign-based alternative rockers Hum. Hum's most recent reunion was right around this time last year, when the group performed at the A.V. Fest and Fun Fun Fun in Austin, TX. Tickets for Hum are on sale now, and festival passes are also still available.
Sleigh Bells are also scheduled to play Metro on September 28, which is the first date of their tour with Araabmuzik.
There's no word on whether the injury will affect that tour.
UPDATE: The "recently sustained injury" is a fractured radial bone in guitarist Derek Miller's right arm, due to a fall at a Florida skatepark. The Metro show has been moved to November 4, and the entire tour has been rerouted.
An updated list of Sleigh Bells dates and a couple of Hum videos are below...

1000s evacuating Lollapalooza (via BVChicago Instagram)
Thousands are flooding out the gates of Grant Park as we speak. C3 Says:
Due to an approaching storm and warnings from the National Weather Service (NWS), Lollapalooza organizers have suspended the festival until further notice. Festival-goers are being evacuated from Grant Park and are being directed by staff and the Chicago Police Department to pre-established underground evacuation and shelter sites along Michigan Avenue.Meanwhile, C3 are "working w/ our team & city officials to survey the park after the storm to determine if it is safe for festival goers to return today." Stay tuned.
The three emergency evacuation shelters are the Grant Park North, Grant Park South and East Monroe Street Garages. All can be entered through vehicle entrances on Michigan Avenue.
Lollapalooza officials are continuing to coordinate with the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) to monitor weather conditions and determine when the park is safe for festival-goers to return.
"Our first priority is always the safety of our fans, staff and artists," said Shelby Meade, communications director for C3 Presents, the promoter behind Lollapalooza. "We regret having to suspend any show, but safety always comes first."
UPDATE: At 5:43, Greg Kot says "Possible reopen at 6 ish is latest word but still raining. A remote entrance gate open, apparently was never closed #lolla"

Passion Pit at Governors Ball in June (more by Amanda Hatfield
The following was posted to Passion Pit's website:
Thanks to everyone for all of their love and support throughout these past couple weeks. While we're excited to see you over the next two weekends at Lollapalooza, Osheaga and Outside Lands, we're sorry to let you know that we need to postpone our upcoming weekday shows in Colorado and Salt Lake City in order for Michael to continue to improve his mental health and complete a procedure that week.As mentioned in the note, Passion Pit's appearance at Lollapalooza (8/3) and their aftershow at House of Blues (8/2) are luckily unaffected, as they fall right in between the newly cancelled dates and the July shows that were cancelled earlier this month. Feel better soon, Michael.
We know that this is disappointing to fans who were planning on coming to these shows, and we want you to know we're doing everything we can to try and make it up to you. In fact, we are happy to announce three rescheduled dates from last week in Charlotte/Nashville/Knoxville-- the shows will take place in September as part of our fall tour. And we'll keep you posted on Colorado/Salt Lake City as soon as we can. Please visit the TOUR PAGE for a list of all current tour dates.
We appreciate everyone's support and patience. We'll see you soon.

As we reported on BV, all the best to Matt Pike of High on Fire who starts on the road toward sobriety. The also-Sleep-er (who recently played Scion Rock Fest) will sit out their upcoming slot on the Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival Tour, that will include their stop at First Midwest Bank Amphitheater on July 21. Major bummer, but can't wait for him to come back stronger than ever.
I Break Horses @ the Riv earlier this month (more by James Richards IV)
Dear Chicago.I Break Horses played the Riv earlier this month with M83 and were scheduled to headline Lincoln Hall tonight (5/29). As you can see from the above message from the band, that won't be happening.
We've driven from San Francisco to Chicago over the last 3 days expecting to play our show tonight at Lincoln Hall. We've heard many amazing things about the venue, and we love Chicago. But unfortunately Maria is still quite ill, and we are unable to play for you all this evening. We hope we will get to come back and play for you another time. Thank you for understanding. [I Break Horses]
Feel better, Maria!

Watain at Santos Party House (more by BBG)
"It's not the first time the law stands in our way trying to prevent us from doing our work, and just like all the previous times it will lay broken and humiliated eventually. We are content we will be victorious, meanwhile we ask all our U.S. supporters to have patience and prepare themselves for the coming of WATAIN!"No word regarding a make up show, but we'll keep you informed.
Wolvhammer is still on board for the Chicago show, and will tour with the mighty Dragged into Sunlight in May/June.
Well, the above tweet pretty much says it all.
