The sold out Cold Cave / Boyd Rice show scheduled for tomorrow (6/28) at TT The Bear's in Boston, MA, a Bowery Boston production, has been cancelled. Venue manager Kevin Patey commented on the cancellation to Vanyaland:
"We've made the decision we didn't want this person in the room. After researching the artist and discussing it with promoters in other cities, we made it clear to the agent that we didn't want this person to perform at our venue. We weren't canceling Cold Cave, but the agent said the show wouldn't happen without the opener. It was the agent's decision. So regrettably, the show was cancelled.""This person" is of course noise artist Boyd Rice, the controversial former Death in June member whose ties to Nazism, satanism, and accusations of misogyny continue to follow him. Some argue that Rice is just a provocateur using "shock tactics." What do you think?
In the show's stead, the Boston venue is holding a benefit for "local womens' groups and/or shelters."
This is not the first cancellation of this tour. Dates in Toronto and Montreal were also called off for the same reasons. Rice's inclusion on the Cold Cave tour also enraged Philly ANTIFA folk, where that stop ended up being canceled, resulting in last week's late night Saint Vitus show. Chicago ANTIFA are none too pleased either, and claimed to have shut down the Empty Bottle show on 6/24 with a smoke bomb (though the show went on as planned). Cold Cave's upcoming dates with Rice (who performs with the band) include Montreal tonight, and a sold-out Brooklyn show at 285 Kent on 6/28.
Don't have a ticket? Don't want to support Boyd Rice, but not holding it against his collaborators? Cold Cave also just announced a September 4th Brooklyn show at Glasslands.
UPDATE- The Philadelphia show is not happening.. So we've added a second show in Brooklyn on June 19th at St. Vitus!And with that announcement, Cold Cave & NON have added a second NYC show which happens before the previously discussed and now sold-out show at 285 Kent on June 29. Tickets are on sale for the Saint Vitus show.
In other Cold Cave news, the band has posted stream for the "Black Boots" and "Meaningful Life," both available on the Black Boots 7" out now on Heartworm. Check out those songs, and their updated tour schedule, below.
