SVIIB @ LPR, May 2012 (more by Amanda Hatfield)
SVIIB

Bad news School of Seven Bells fans looking forward to seeing them tonight (11/28) at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Singer Alejandra de la Deheza has laryngitis, which forced them to cancel last night's show in Philadelphia and they just posted this to their Facebook:

Dear Brooklyn,

It totally breaks my heart to say this. We've had to pull out of tonight's show at Music Hall. I tried absolutely everything I could. EVERYTHING :( I'm still sick as ever. I was so looking forward to this show. I was waiting until the last minute before I called it. I was hoping so bad that I could still do it. You guys mean so much to me and I'm so sorry. We'll reschedule as soon as possible. I promise. -A

Twin Sister and Moon King will go on as scheduled and the show now opens with Leapling at 9 PM. Feel better, Alejandra!

Suicide

Due to illness, Suicide has cancelled their previously discussed appearance where they were planning on perforiming their first LP in its entirety. Bush Tetras, originally scheduled for the support slot at LPR on 11/29, has now moved to the top of the heap alongside supporting band Sediment Club.

All tickets will be honored for the show, which is now billed as a release party for Bush Tetras new LP Happy. The record, laid tape in 1998, was released last week via Reachout International. The first 50 people through the door get a copy for free.

Starland Ballroom (more by Tim Griffin)
Starland BAllroom

Another victim of Sandy. The NJ music venue writes:

A MESSAGE FROM THE STARLAND BALLROOM:

The last two weeks in New Jersey have been a testament to our state's resilience. We've witnessed New Jersey's worst days, but also its greatest humanity. We've seen destruction, but we've also seen ho
pe, hard work and determination.

Our situation at Starland is a microcosm of these scenarios -- yet one we realize is significantly less important than one's home, family or livelihood. Hurricane Sandy devastated our electrical system and damaged our sound, lighting, heating / cooling and plumbing systems - all necessary ingredients in operating a public venue. Given the demand for these components in the regional housing and commercial sectors, we do not anticipate being able to open again until Spring 2013.

Speaking of 2013, it's the year in which we intend to celebrate Starland Ballroom's 10th anniversary. So we're dedicated to taking this time to rebuild the state's best concert venue, and make it even better. We'll take inspiration from all of our New Jersey neighbors who are working hard to get their lives back to normal. When it's all said and done, we'll be here for some of the best live concert celebrations available.

You can help in this effort: Send us an email to info@starlandballroom.com with your suggestions and ideas on how to make Starland even better. We'll read every last one of them.

Most of our shows will be canceled. A few will be moved to new locations. We'll have them listed here and at Starlandballroom.com ASAP.

Fans holding tickets to the canceled shows will receive a full refund, including fees. If you bought tickets online or via phone, you will receive an automatic refund within 7-10 business days. If you bought your tickets from a Ticketmaster retail outlet, you may return your tickets to that exact location for your refund. Tickets purchased here at Starland can be turned in for a full refund plus service fees during new hours of operation - Thursdays and Fridays from 3-6pm and Saturdays from 11am-2pm. The Box Office will not be open on Thanksgiving. Fans holding tickets to relocated shows, but unable to attend due to the new location, are also entitled to a refund. 2012 Starland SeasonPass holders will be permitted to use their passes for shows in 2013.

We regret that any of these shows are going away, but not as much as we regret the pain, suffering and destruction experienced by our customers throughout the Garden State. Much like the spirit of New Jersey, you can't stop rock n' roll. And we don't intend to.

Jersey proud, Starlanders. We'll see you soon.

Damn. See below for a list of shows affected:

As many of my fans know, I've been suffering from angioedema. It can attack at random & is extremely frightening and dangerous when it hits my throat, windpipe, or tongue, and I've been hospitalized for it eight times since the first attack, 2 DAYS AFTER MY RECORD RELEASE.

Since then, I worked very very hard with all the best allergists, cardiologists, neurologists, accupuncurists, homeopathists & renowned healers that I could find, Body Talk, Reiki, Yoga, etc. so that I COULD DO THIS AMERICAN TOUR.

I did my best & I want to do MORE & BETTER.

The American tour has been wonderful and amazing, and with me being unable to AFFORD to bring my show with full production, (which i helped create) to Europe, financially, really dumped a huge additional amount of stress on me as i was and still am fighting trying to get tour support.

I have to postpone my European tour until early next year, so I can return home and re-engage myself back into my health regimen.

I fucking love my fans.

Everything I do regarding my career, I FIRST, think of my fans and this world we all share.

But right now, I HAVE TO think of myself because I have to learn trough meditation & being clear from alcohol & cigarettes & red meat and lots of rest amongst my menagerie of doctors.... I have to think of MYSELF right now because I have to now LEARN to heal myself.

Through that, I can learn to help others to heal themselves.

I know my fans will understand and I thank them and love them much more than I believe they could ever know.

I am here and do what I do, for them and because of them.

You have kept me alive this long, I refuse to give up on you OR MYSELF.

And that goes to all the journalists who write a true story as well. To you all in the struggle. May light be on your path at every step.

Love always

NYC Marathon

After harsh criticism, the city has cancelled Sunday's NYC Marathon after all.

UPDATE: a statement from the Mayor:

"The Marathon has been an integral part of New York City's life for 40 years and is an event tens of thousands of New Yorkers participate in and millions more watch. While holding the race would not require diverting resources from the recovery effort, it is clear that it has become the source of controversy and division. The marathon has always brought our city together and inspired us with stories of courage and determination. We would not want a cloud to hang over the race or its participants, and so we have decided to cancel it. We cannot allow a controversy over an athletic event - even one as meaningful as this - to distract attention away from all the critically important work that is being done to recover from the storm and get our city back on track. The New York Road Runners will have additional information in the days ahead for participants."
In related news, power just came back in the East Village and Lower East Side.

The WFMU Record Fair is cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy. All dealers will be refunded their payments, and the Fair will return in the Fall of 2013. We're very sorry about this, but the Pavilion has no power, WFMU has no power, mass transit in NYC is still not working and there are no estimates as to when electric or transit will return to normal. Our apologies to anybody who is inconvenienced by this.
The record fair was set to happen from 11/2-11/4. Meanwhile, Other Music is also closed and their website is down.

Happy Halloween!

Smashing Pumpkins

After the parade, probably the biggest NYC Halloween cancellation is now Smashing Pumpkins at Barclays Center which officially has been postponed "due to the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Ticket holders should keep their tickets for an upcoming rescheduled date. We will announce more information soon."

This is now the fourth Barclays Center concert to be cancelled or postponed. Two of those, the other being Journey, were because of the hurricane.

UPDATE: The parade still may happen!

2011 NYC Halloween Parade (more by Chris La Putt)

The really wanted to keep it happening, but...

For the first time in our 39 year history, the Mayor's Office of Emergency Management and the NYPD have CANCELLED the Parade.

We hope that everyone who would have come to the Parade is safe and that those who can volunteer to help out at one of the Emergency Outreach Centers near you.

We will surely miss all of you!

Hallelujah Halloween!

We had a feeling this would happen. Still a bummer.

The Park Slope Halloween parade is also cancelled.

Aimee Mann

Aimee Mann and Ted Leo, who played Town Hall together on 10/27, were supposed to play Bowery Ballroom last night (10/29) and Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight (10/30). As mentioned before the power went out, the Monday Bowery show was postponed to Wednesday/Halloween, but tonight's Brooklyn show was just officially cancelled moments ago, one of the last hold-outs (pretty much every other Tuesday night show was already cancelled).

It's unclear now if they'll reschedule and what will happen to Wednesday's show... Aimee tweeted, "So sorry to report that my show in Williamsburg tonight is canceled...I guess they were just afraid no one could get there. Argh!! I think they are considering an option of doing two shows tomorrow? But not sure where that would be. I'll keep you posted. If we do two tomorrow, it will probably be in Williamsburg, since the power is still out in lower Manhattan." Stay tuned.

UPDATE from Aimee: "Ok, here it is: I'm playing tomorrow at the Williamsburg Music Hall & both Williamsburg tickets AND Bowery tickets will be honored. AND... We're working on rescheduling to play at the Bowery next week, if you can't get to Williamsburg. Whew! #sorrytimesamillion"

Aesop Rock in Austin, August 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
Aesop Rock

More Hurricane Sandy concert cancellations, though this doesn't affect a New York show, bad news from Aesop Rock:

***After consulting with venues, agents, managers, promoters, etc - due to the weather emergency, tonight will be the last show of this tour.

We WILL play NC tonight, but VA, MD, MA, VT, RI, CT are going to be postponed. Check the venue sites for updates.

We don't know if we could make it to the cities, or make it out, or if y'all could make it to the shows. As is - some of us can't get home.***

A list of affected tour dates are below, and you can check out pics of Aesop Rock's show at Austin's Mohowk from back in August here.

In happier Rhymesayers hip hop news, we're glad to report that P.O.S.'s kidney transplant fund has exceeded its $25,000 goal and you can still donate to help. The emergency transplant forced the rapper to cancel his fall tour which would've hit Irving Plaza on November 7.

UPDATE: The Village Halloween Parade is now cancelled too.

Halloween

As mentioned earlier today, the famous, annual Village Halloween Parade seems determined to happen, but is "awaiting the Mayor's Decision...". Meanwhile, the less famous, more family oriented parade that happens in Park Slope each year (it starts right near the currently damaged Bar 4), is officially not happening...

NYPD and NYC Department of Sanitation are focusing on clean-up and safety efforts, post Hurricane Sandy. Therefore, the annual Park Slope Civic Council Halloween Parade will be cancelled this year. The parade WILL NOT be rescheduled.

Best wishes for your safety during the post storm clean-up, and we'll hope for better luck with the weather next year.

Oh well. More pictures like the above, by Chris La Putt, HERE.

UPDATE: The Village Halloween Parade is now cancelled too.

Andrew WK
Andrew WK

Even the hardest partier in the world was forced to succumb to Hurricane Sandy. The Andrew WK Halloween show at Autumn Bowl, which was supposed to go down this Wednesday (10/31), has been added to the long list of cancelled shows this week due to the natural disaster that we've been hit with. As mentioned in the tweets above, tickets can be refunded where purchased. And it looks like Andrew will still be partying wherever he is on Wednesday night, so if you were gonna go to the show, you should find a way to do the same. It's what Andrew WK would want.

A video of Andrew WK the weatherman below...

Green Day

Barclays Center has only been open for like a month and they've already racked up three cancellations. Green Day, who previously cancelled some stuff when they announced Billie Joe was going to rehab, has appropriately chosen the day of Hurricane Sandy to announce they're cancelling even more:

Green Day announced today they will cancel their club tour that was due to launch in Seattle at the Paramount Theatre on September 26th and wind down in Tempe, AZ at the Marquee Theatre on December 10th. Tickets for these clubs shows will be refunded at point of purchase. Additionally, Green Day will postpone all scheduled appearances for the months of January and February 2013. New dates for these rescheduled shows will be announced shortly and previously purchased tickets will be honored on the new dates.

"Obviously the timing for this isn't ideal, but Billie Joe's well-being is our main concern," said Mike Dirnt. "We are happy to say that Billie Joe is doing well, and we want to thank you all for the outpouring of support and well wishes that we have received, and we can't wait to see you all again soon.

Green Day also announced they would move up the release date of Green Day ¡Tré! to December 11, 2012 from its original date of January 15, 2013.

"We feel bad we have to delay our tour, so to make up for it we want to give our fans the music earlier than we had planned," said Tré Cool. "If we couldn't be there to play it for you live, the least we could do was give you the next best thing."
