If you were confused, like I just was, as to why The Babies opened for Yuck at Music Hall of Williamsburg the other day, and why Gross Magic's name has been removed from the upcoming EMA show at Bowery Ballroom, well, this 10/13 Facebook post from Gross Magic clears it up:

Blues Explosion @ SSSeaport in 2009 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
"Everywhere we go, people ask us, When will the Blues Explosion record a new album? And while I respect that spirit, and we are flattered and feel the passion of our fans, the reason to make a new record has to reside inside the Blues Explosion. And a show at the world-famous Maxwell's club in Hoboken New Jersey is a perfect opportunity to perform some new material before taking it into the recording studio." - Jon SpencerNothing serious, but Russell Simins is sick, and so Thursday night's Jon Spencer Blues Explosion show at Maxwell's is unfortunately cancelled. Rescheduled date
Adele @ Joe's Pub in 2008 (more by Bao Nguyen)
Adele's reps say:
Adele has been forced to cancel her upcoming 10 city sold-out tour of the U.S. due to a haemorrhage into her vocal chord. Vocal chord issues forced the British singer to postpone dates earlier this year as well. Adele has just wrapped up touring around the UK and was preparing to kick off her US tour on October 7 in Atlantic City, NJ when her illness reappeared (see below for full list of cancelled US tour dates). Renowned for her powerful live vocal performances, Adele has been advised by doctors that she'll need an extended rest period in order to begin to recuperate properly. Further details to follow regarding these cancelled dates. Refunds may be obtained at point of purchase.You can read a more personal letter along with a list of the cancelled dates and Adele's new video for "Someone Like You", below...
Mos Def at House of Blues Chicago w/ Black Star on 9/23 (more by Zach Pollack)
Back on 9/28, just five days after Black Star played two shows in Chicago, Talib Kweli tweeted that "Due to irreconcilable differences with Live Nation, Black Star will not be performing in Atlanta tonight." He then said the show WAS happening, and then again that it wasn't. On 9/30 he said, "Regarding Black Star cancellations, I am just as frustrated as I can imagine many are. If it was my decision it would not go down like this. It is not my decision however, and its frustrating especially since I'm the one who gets to break the bad news and deal with the responses. Either way, some dates are cancelled, some arent and we are trying to book shows on our own to replace the cancelled ones." Then yesterday was his birthday. Then he pointed out that "we debuting new Black Star/Madlib on Colbert Report Oct 5th." October 5th is also the day they were scheduled to play Irving Plaza in NYC, which, as you can see from Ticketmaster, is also cancelled. According to a statement someone issued, "Due to unforeseen circumstances, the remainder of the Black Star tour has been cancelled." Bummer.
Both Talib Kweli and Mos Def, though not as Black Star, are still scheduled to play the Restoration Rocks event on October 8th though.
Ringworm at SXSW (more by BBG)
"Unfortunately, we've had to cancel the upcoming US fall tour due to circumstances out of our control." - RingwormThey say that bad things come in threes, so let's hope that Ringworm's announcement is the last (after Mogwai and The Radio Dept). No word on rescheduled dates. Their tour with The Greenery was supposed to hit Public Assembly on 11/19. - BBG

"Dear fans, due to an unfortunate injury, we are going to have to cancel the rest of our North American tour with a possible exception for Chicago. As of now, the European & UK tour are still going forward as planned. We will keep you updated as things progress."That seated tour was set to hit NYC at Florence Gould Hall on 9/21. Refunds will happen I assume. The list of cancelled/happening dates is below...

Chairlift @ All Points West 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
After realizing that I couldn't find any info today confirming that James Murphy was DJing a VPL block party on Mercer Street tonight (9/8), I looked into it a little more and found out that the block party is cancelled, James Murphy included. Instead, and as listed at the Fashion's Night Out website, VPL (5 Mercer Street) is having this @ 6:30PM --- "Seldom House: A Covers Set by Caroline Polachek (Chairlift), Jorge Elbrecht (Violens), Will Berman (MGMT) and Leo Fitzpatrick." That's inside the store.
If you still want to some DFA action, Holy Ghost! plays the Prada store @ 6PM.
You can also catch Andrew VanWyngarden from MGMT aka DJ iDEATH with DJ Patrick from Chairlift entertaining people for Fashion's Night Out at Curve @ 8PM (that's at 83 Mercer St).
Also Tanlines AND MNDR AND Freelance Whales play Theory (38 Gansevoort St) starting @ 6PM.
Upcoming Chairlift shows are listed HERE.
Once again, Langerado is gone.Death Cab for Cutie, Trey Anastasio Band, Ben Harper, Ween, Thievery Corporation, Arctic Monkeys, G. Love & Special Sauce, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Wolfgang Gartner, Etienne De Crecy - Live Show, Ghostland Observatory, Das Racist, Portugal. The Man, Friendly Fires, Childish Gambino, Smith Westerns, Super Mash Bros., Savoy, Mates of State and The Whigs were all on the bill of the cancelled Florida fest.
An attempt to revive the South Florida music festival ended up failing, as the concert, scheduled for Oct. 8-9 at Davie's Markham Park, was canceled by promoters Boros Entertainment. It's the second time that Langerado has been canceled in the last three years -- in 2009, the show was canceled due to economic reasons after being slated for Miami's Bicentennial Park.
Tickets were initially selling for $150 in advance, $180 at the gate, although The Miami Herald reports they were dipping in price to as low as $75.
The lineup included Death Cab For Cutie, Arctic Monkeys, Trey Anastasio, Ben Harper and Ween. The Herald reports that the lineup had been getting criticized on Facebook since it was announced back in June.
On Twitter, Death Cab lead singer Ben Gibbard, whose band was also part of the canceled 2009 festival, expressed his apologies to fans: "Sorry to all who were looking forward to seeing us at Langerado. Very upset that we've had to say this twice in the last 5 years." [PBPost]
Due to unforeseen circumstances the Plastikman 1.5 live show will not be able to proceed tonight as originally planned.Damn (thx Hiro).
Electric Zoo will now be presenting a special one hour Richie Hawtin DJ set with the Ali Demiral LED visuals show. This will take place at 10pm-11pm in the Hilltop Arena - the same arena where Plastikman would have performed.
From Richie Hawtin, "Plastikman Live is a technically challenging show that has appeared successfully in over a dozen countries over the past year. The shows systems are well-tested but rely on specific requirements from the festivals where we perform. Without full compliance of these requirements we can find ourselves in a frustrating situation. My production team has been on site in NYC since Tuesday working alongside the Electric Zoo production team preparing for this show, and they have done everything within their powers to address the challenges that have been presented at the event. Sadly it has not worked out and we regret to announce that Plastikman will not perform in New York this weekend. We are excited, in light of the situation, that we are able to present this LED visual show similar to the shows that we present at other festivals around the world".
Richie Hawtin will also still headline the Sunday School Grove on Sunday at Electric Zoo.

QUIKSILVER PRO NEW YORK SURF CONTEST WILL RUN: Update from Long BeachDamn. You can see the list of who was supposed to play, below...
An important update from Long Beach - Quiksilver is working closely with the City of Long Beach to preserve the heart of the professional surf contest scheduled to start on Sunday, September 4 in light of the impact of Hurricane Irene and concerns for the Long Beach community, which suffered significant damage from the storm. The Quiksilver Pro is scheduled to start its 11-day "holding period" on Monday, September 5. The Quiksilver Pro Trials presented by Unsound Surf will run on Sunday, September 4.
The situation has been changing daily, and we recognize that City resources are focused on hurricane restoration and clean up as first priority. In that context, we have been informed by the City that the festival and music components of the event are no longer achievable.
The Quiksilver Pro NY is first and foremost about the surf contest and Long Beach has an incredible surfing tradition and spirit. We are committed to holding the ASP tour event at Long Beach so that together we can promote the sport by bringing together the best surfers in the world to this terrific community.
Lauryn Hill reacts to reviews from her Saturday appearance
at Rock The Bells in Mountain View (more by Andrew St. Clair)
Any music event that pins its hopes on Lauryn Hill -- one of the most maddeningly disappointing performers of recent years -- is fighting an uphill battle right from the very start.I'm guessing he didn't like Lauryn Hill. Judge for yourself when she headlines the upcoming Rock The Bells date in NYC this weekend (9/3). The shows goes down on Governors Island (may the weather gods be nicer to hip hop than they were to Dave Matthews) Tickets are still available and set times have been announced, though NOTE:
Fortunately, the 2011 Rock the Bells festival tour, which stopped Saturday (8/27) at Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View, has so many other things going for it -- so many, in fact, that it's a shame to have to even bring up the headliner. But organizers made their bed, by picking Ms. Hill for the prime time slot, and now they have to sleep in it.
What's ironic, however, is that this was arguably the best performance locals have seen from Hill in many a moon. And it still sent thousands scurrying for the exits, with some complaining loudly about the 36-year-old soul singer's poor outing, midway through the set.
That's how low Hill has set the bar -- basically at ground level -- and anything greater than a complete train wreck will clear it. That fans weren't demanding refunds, like they had when Hill performed a 2007 show at Oakland's Paramount Theatre, can be seen as a kind of victory for this troubled performer.
Still, it was disappointing, especially for those die-hard fans hoping against all reason that Hill can someday return to the heights she reached in the '90s. And it was the only disappointment during an otherwise splendid day of hip-hop, which ran some 12 hours.
"DOOM will no longer perform on the remaining scheduled festival dates. He extends his apologizes to fans for not being able to make the US shows but looks forward to performing on Rock The Bells soon."Curren$y also had to cancel the 8/27 show in California due to a broken ankle sustained at the 8/20 California date.
In related news, Erykah Badu (who is on board for Rock The Bells) will be in NYC early to spin at Le Poisson Rouge on September 1st with Adrian Younge. The event is FREE with RSVP (send to firstname.lastname@example.org..Please include date of show in subject line). The event is one of two FREE Wax Poetics/Skullcandy events at the venue, with the second taking place on 9/29 with DJ Premier and Kendra Morris. RSVP with the same email to that show as well.
Check out some videos/interviews from California below...
With multiple rooms and over multiple hours, West Village music venue Le Poisson Rouge manages to cram a lot of events into a single day. Today, Saturday, August 27th, they were planning on hosting six separate events.
They're still planning on hosting three of them! Head there at 7pm to play bingo with Linda Simpson and stick around for late night dancing at "I Love Vinyl" in the Gallery (DJ Scribe, Amir, The Twilite Tone, OP!, Jon Oliver and Ge-Ology) and with San Francisco's Mark Farina in the main room (along with Sleepy & Boo , Mikey G vs. Dan Fischer and Beyrouth).
UPDATE: An hour after they said they were saying open, and 15 minutes after I posted this, LPR announced: "ALL SHOWS AT LPR THIS WEEKEND ARE CANCELED. REMEMBER TO GET DISASTER RELIEF SUPPLIES, LIKE CHEX MIX, GIN, AND TONIC."
Three of the cancelled events on Saturday are also part of the Fringe Festival, and they cancelled one of those that was scheduled to happen on Sunday too.
Death By Audio, who as of this morning were planning on opening tonight, have posted an update: "PERSONAL AND THE PIZZAS HAVE CANCELLED, SHOW IS CANCELLED TONIGHT AND MOST LIKELY SUNDAY AS WELL, IM SORRY, AND MAY GOD CONTINUE TO FUCK THE MTA!"
UPDATE: Sunday as well:
Very sorry to announce that tonights Personal & the Pizzas show, as well as, tomorrows Hand Cream show have been cancelled due to touring acts not being able to enter the city, i wouldve gladly hosted these shows as death by audio wont be heavily effected by the storm, but i respect the touring bands concerns for their safety in the end times. Hopefully see you monday when you all break free of your cocoons and emerge as beautiful butterflies.--
