Flaming Lips in Toronto (more by David Andrako)
The Flaming Lips were planning on landing in Simsbury, CT on July 15th, but Simsbury, CT has decided Wayne Coyne and crew will need to make other plans:
The town has decided against having The Flaming Lips play at the performing arts center at Simsbury Meadows this summer.Major bummer Simsbury.
First Selectwoman Mary Glassman said the concert was conditionally approved pending a permit but that after conversations with Police Chief Peter Ingvertsen officials decided against the concert.
Glassman said the issue came down to staffing, and that it would have been difficult to get the necessary police officers in place for the concert, especially since the previously approved Emmylou Harris concert is planned for the following night. [Hartford Courant]
Meanwhile, the Flaming Lips have arrived in the NYC-area for a three-night run that looks like this:
Flaming Lips are here:Tune into Fallon tonight, get your tickets for the NJ show, and make sure to get to Prospect Park on Friday by 6:15!! The Darkness, Flaming Lips and Yeah Yeah Yeahs all on one bill has the makings of an epic show. It's just too bad that the Lips go on so early, and it's even sadder that the Darkness play at 4:45!
May 15 - The Late Show with Jimmy Fallon
May 16 - Montclair, NJ The Wellmont Theater
May 17 - Prospect Park Brooklyn, NY - GoogaMooga
All tour dates and the band's newest (and very) NSFW video below...
DB & SV (more by Tim Griffin)
"DUE TO A SCHEDULING CONFLICT, THE JUNE 11th DAVID BYRNE & ST. VINCENT SHOW AT THE WELLMONT THEATRE HAS BEEN CANCELLED. REFUNDS AVAILABLE AT POINT OF PURCHASE. TICKETS ARE STILL AVAILABLE FOR JUNE 12th."Meanwhile "Here Lies Love" at the Public Theater has been extended and is going strong. More DB/SV tour dates, including the Capitol Theater, are HERE.
The picture above (via Governors Ball's Twitter) pretty much says it all. Death From Above 1979 have cancelled their appearance at this year's Governors Ball, which is especially unfortunate considering they were one of the ten bands we're excited to see. Apparently they're in the throes of finishing their new album and can't make it.
Taking their place at the actual festival is Foals, who just brought their tour to Terminal 5 last Friday (5/3) for a fairly insane, hyper-energetic shows. The crowd was pretty much going bananas the whole time (as was singer Yannis Philippakis who spent as much time in the crowd as onstage) so this seems like a good addition to Governors Ball, even though DFA1979 will be missed.
Regular Governors Ball tickets are totally sold out, but you can still get VIP Passes for Friday or all three days.
Bad news: Dan Deacon's high-concept show on Saturday (4/27) at the Metropolitan Museum of Art with ""audience-triggered sound and light, video projection with live and electronic sounds" has been canceled, as the above tweet from Dan states. All tickets will be refunded.
Good news: The afterparty that Dan is DJing at 285 Kent that same night is still on, though now it's just a "party." Doors are at 10 PM and tickets
are still available SOLD OUT. We're not exactly sure what to expect, but Dan rarely just DJs.
Steve Mason of the Beta Band was supposed to be playing some shows soon, Knitting Factory and Mercury Lounge included, but:
With regret we have to announce that the US shows have been postponed until further notice due to a visa issue. We are very sorry that this has happened and its unfortunately beyond our control we are doing all we can to resolve the problem and get the shows rescheduled as soon as possible. Obviously any ticket purchased will be refunded in full.The same thing happened in 2010, but that time they blamed zero interest in the show. We'll let you know if we hear about new dates.
A$AP Rocky at Public Assembly in February (more by Dylan Johnson)
As mentioned, the Jay-Z curated Budweiser Made In America festival is returning to Philly from August 31 - September 1 at Benjamin Franklin Parkway with a lineup of Beyonce, Queens of the Stone Age, Nine Inch Nails, Black Hippy (aka Kendrick Lamar, Schoolboy Q, Ab-Soul, and Jay Rock), Miguel, Solange, Phoenix, A$AP Rocky, The Gaslight Anthem, AlunaGeorge, Public Enemy, and more. Tickets for the festival are on Facebook Presale now. Password is "AMERICA."
Meanwhile, A$AP Rocky, who plays that festival, is on a tour with Rihanna now which hits the NYC area on April 28 at Prudential Center (tickets) and May 4 and 5 at Barclays Center (sold out). As mentioned, he was supposed to stop in NYC for his own late show at Highline Ballroom after the Prudential Center show, but his Highline show has been cancelled. No word yet on how to obtain refunds if you've purchased tickets.
UPDATE: A$AP Rocky & Rihanna's show in Houston tonight is also cancelled, though that is probably a coincidence.
Updated A$AP Rocky dates are listed, along with the Made In America flyer, below...
Production duo TNGHT (aka Hudson Mohawke and Lunice), who are playing this year's Pitchfork Festival, are about to kick off their North American tour this month, which surrounds their appearances at Coachella. That tour was initially supposed to hit NYC for shows at Webster Hall on April 16 and 17 but TNGHT have cancelled the April 16 date. They're still playing on April 17 though and tickets for that show are still available. Updated dates are listed below.
TNGHT also produced the track "Lay It Down," which appears on Lil Wayne's new album I Am Not A Human Being II. Nicki MInaj is also on that track and you can stream it below.
Wayne is supporting that album on a huge tour with T.I. (who recently played NYC at Best Buy Theater) and Future. That tour hits the NYC area on July 19 at Jones Beach and July 24 at PNC Bank Arts Center. Tickets for those shows are not on sale yet but you can check ticketmaster for updates.
All dates are listed, along with that song stream, below...

Foxygen's Jonathan Rado and Sam France @ SXSW 2013
Sounds like Foxygen need a rest. The band just canceled their European dates set for May and June, writing on their Facebook this morning:
We have some unfortunate news. We have to cancel our upcoming EU dates for May and June and upcoming EU festival dates. We'd like apologize to all our European fans and supporters. We know this causes frustration and headaches for ticket buyers and promoters alike. We assure you this is ultimately for the creative health of the band. We will back in EU very soon and promise to make this up to all of you. Please understand. Thank you again, all of you. Your time, attention and support mean the world to us. Love, Foxygen.The band have been nonstop touring since their release of their acclaimed new album, We Are the 21st Century Ambassadors of Peace & Magic. Their tour with Unknown Mortal Orchestra brought them to SXSW where they had a bunch of shows scheduled. That's where an exhausted Sam France lashed out at a fan during a Foxygen performance on the Thursday (3/15) of that week, and then ended up, as mentioned, canceling their appearance at our Saturday day party:
A couple more shots from SXSW and all tour dates are listed below. Rest up guys.
Local H (Scott Lucas on right)
Sometimes when bands cancel shows/tours due to illness, our reaction is "buck up, camper! Play through it!" But in the case of Local H frontman Scott Lucas... we'll let him explain (via facebook):
Here's what happened : A month ago, after... a date in Moscow, I was assaulted and robbed. The attacker came up from behind and put me in a chokehold until I passed out. When I came to, I was in a stairwell with all of my pockets empty. No phone, no wallet, no cash, and (worst of all) no passport. Nothing. Even my hat and glasses were gone. It wasn't until I found someone to ask for help that I realized something else was gone - my voice. When I opened my mouth to ask that person to call me a taxi, nothing but a scratchy croak would come out. I touched my throat and could feel that more damage had been done than I initially thought. A purple bruise began to form. I was having trouble swallowing. Russia...........Yikes. Bad news for fans is that all East Coast dates of Local H's tour, including Gramercy Theatre in NYC which was to have been tonight (3/27), were canceled. Great news is Lucas' vocal cords are gonna be okay and shows starting Saturday (3/30, Rosemont, IL) are back on. Here's more from Local H's Facebook:
When I got back to the states, I just figured that resting my voice and taking it easy would allow everything to return to normal. I'd lost my voice before and I knew the drill : shut the fuck up (basically). But it soon became apparent that this time my voice wasn't going to just heal itself and I had to see someone. The folks at MusiCares hooked me up with a voice doctor who found that one of my vocal cords had been damaged. How badly damaged, we're not sure yet - we need a second opinion. But the doctor said if they had to go in and POP(!) the cord back into place, then we have a limited window for that until the damage becomes permanent.
I saw my third doctor and the possibility of surgery has finally been ruled out. My vocal cords are definitely not disjointed and the medication I've been taking seems to be doing the trick. When they forced the last camera I ever want down my nose today - I could see how much better (and how much stronger) everything looked than it did last week. It was gross, but it was a major relief. It's been a very frustrating month, but last week was pretty fucking scary. I had a lot of help - and you all know who you are. Not to sound like a drama king, but I also really want to thank my doctors and MusiCares over at the Grammys - they're the bee's knees, goddammit (I think it's safe to assume THAT will be the last time I make a Grammys acceptance speech)...Here's to a healthy recovery, Scott. Local H's most recent album, Hallelujah, I'm a Bum, came out last year. All Local H tour dates are below.
...So let's go. I'm not suggesting that I'm completely out of the woods - and I'll be continuing the medication and doing everything I can to make my voice stronger. All I'm suggesting is, "Let's ROCK!"........cautiously - but we WILL see you out there.
UPDATE: Michelle issued a statement.
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.We don't know much about Michelle, who has since responded with a few tweets, but according to Wikipedia, she went from possibly being gay or bisexual herself to being a born again Christian (and not gay?). She (ironically?) showed her support of Occupy Wall Street at a concert in NYC in 2012.
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]
UPDATE: Michelle issued a statement.
The list of shows she was just booted from, SPACE in IL included, is below...

Animal Collective at Terminal 5, Dec 2012 (more by Greg Cristman)
To all of the AC fans out there. I feel its best you hear it right from the horses mouth. It kills me to have to postpone all these shows and it's something I could never even have imagined happening. I'm positive that we were as excited as you all to visit all of your towns and have a good time together. But because of the strain on my voice that's being caused by an intense case of strep throat, I am unable to play any of these shows. Unfortunately, I wasn't diagnosed soon enough and haven't been able to kick this in the right amount of time. We promise you all that we are doing everything we can to reschedule all these shows asap and we will be visiting your cities. We hope you can all understand and sympathize with the situation. It's been really fun for all of us to be playing these days and the energy you all give us makes us want to take it further and further with you and give it right back. Hopefully, we can continue to do this together soon. Until then. Stay Well.Animal Collective's March dates didn't hit NYC but the band will play here for the 2013 Governors Ball festival in June. The band's European tour, which starts in May, is still on. All dates -- postponed and not -- are listed below.

Bad news from UK band TOY, who were to have played their first NYC shows next month:
Bad news - the company processing our visas in the US have been delayed, which means that the New York shows have had to be cancelled. We were so excited about playing and are very sad and sorry to announce this.I, for one, am bummed. TOY's show at Mercury Lounge (3/19) is now Austin's Feathers, UK group Swim Deep and NYC's Tempers.
SXSW are trying to sort out things with customs so that we can still play the shows in Austin. We can't wait to play in New York too, and will be rescheduling as soon as possible! We will announce further info as soon as we have it. xxx
