Teengirl Fantasy, whose July Brooklyn show was moved from the closed Coco66 to 285 Kent, lost two NYC shows to Irene: Warm Up @ PS1 today and a Sunday night appearance at The Museum of Art & Design (both cancelled). Their friends Lemonade were supposed to play the cancelled Out In the Streets Fest Sunday.
All is not lost though, as all signs point to Zebulon still being open tonight (8/27) with Teengirl Fantasy, Callan Klein (Lemonade), and Pasternak (Lemonade) all on the bill.
Exactly two weeks ago Lemonade posted a new song to Soundcloud. Download it above. Stream it, and check out all current Teengirl Fantasy tour dates, below...

You might have missed it, but Boston Strangler released an incredible demo with the ultra-limited Outcast cassette last year. The band, which is primarily the brainchild of vocalist Ban Reilly (also of the incredible Scapegoat) (get their latest now... highly reccomended), has enlisted members of Mind Eraser, Rival Mob, Social Circkle, and a few notable others to churn out some incredible early 80s-style negative hardcore. The band plays a rare show at Acheron on September 17th with Beware (mems of Mother of Mercy). check out some live video below.
The show cancellation count keeps growing. The previously discussed cancellations of shows at the Acheron (including Victims/Defeatist on Sunday), is joined by the latest victim of Irene, Vreid, Kampfar, Necronomicon, and Grafvolluth at Europa. As more shows cancel, we'll keep you posted.
Unsane is working on new music.
Easy Action (with John Brannon of Negative Approach) will team with Kicking Spit (who we previously profiled) and Foster Care to play Acheron on September 26th. Negative Approach makes their return to Fun Fun Fun Fest in November.
Krallice played House of Vans on Wednesday, and in addition to their previously discussed show at Union Pool on 9/17 with Urfaust/Black Anvil, the band has added a show at Death By Audio on 9/14 with Wolves In The Throne Room and Thou.
DC's Give will headline Acheron on 9/9 with Devotion and Too Many Voices (mems of Kill Your Idols).
Karma To Burn are back on the road, and hit Saint Vitus with awesome Black Pyramid and Bezoar on Sept 8th. Full tour schedule is below. KTB's newest album, V, is out now.
Stream three new Speedwolf songs from their forthcoming LP on Hells Headbangers.

After moving their show from upstate to Brooklyn Bowl which was then followed by a 50% reduction in ticket price, Saturday's Daytrotter show is now not happening at all, as the bowling alley venue has cancelled all Saturday and Sunday shows "due to the hurricane. Ticket refunds will be offered." No bowling or food on those days either. Affected artists include JBM, We Are Augustines, Guards, Doug Paisley, Des Ark, Christopher Paul Stelling, The Loom, Williamsburg Salsa Orchestra and (DJ) Talib Kweli.
Daytrotter's Monday show at the Living Room is still on though, and you can head to Brooklyn Bowl tonight (8/26) for a free show by Slowdance. The Dex Romweber Duo and Birds of Avalon show tonight was also cancelled, but that was a coincedence.
cooling down (more by Erez Avissar)
After holding out, MoMA now reports that "sadly, we have to cancel #WarmUp tomorrow because of the hurricane & the subsequent mta closures. Be safe & see you next Saturday, 9/3!", BUT "we are trying to reschedule some of this weekend's performers for an additional #WarmUp on September 10th. We'll keep you posted ;-)" Scheduled performers were Tanlines, Nguzunguzu, Teengirl Fantasy, Sun Araw, and Physical Therapy.
You can still catch Sun Araw at MHOW tonight though (8/26)
Victims @ Best Friends Day (more by Chris Boarts Larson)
Due to the oncoming apocalypse (how they are selling it anyway), the previously discussed Victims show with Defeatist, Grudges, and DBCR at Acheron on Sunday (8/28) has been cancelled. Stay tuned, as this show MAY be rescheduled. Saturday's show at Acheron, featuring Brickeater, Gang Signs and VYGR is also CANCELLED.
Evacuate to the Bell House tonight (8/26) to catch a show by punk veterans Deniz Tek & Ivan Julian, but then stay away for the rest of the weekend because David Kilgour & Richard Buckner and the rest of Saturday & Sunday's shows at both the Bell House and Union Hall are all cancelled.
With our Ted Leo show cancelled too, there's now a lot less music to see in Park Slope this weekend.

Blackout survivor Ted Leo in the rain (more by Chris La Putt)
You know, I've been bugging BV to put on a show with me since I became aware of just how much I missed helping put together our RoFL shows at Pianos. Doesn't it figure that when we finally get it happening mother nature sends along one of her most loathsome weather systems to go head and destroy my, our, dreams. Folks, it is with a heavy heart that I must inform you that the BrooklynVegan and Klaus Kinski present Ted Leo, Doug Gillard, Broadcaster, and Dave Hill scheduled to take place at the Rock Shop on Saturday August 27th has been CANCELLED.
If you've been a good little pup and have been reading BrooklynVegan over the past coupla days, you'd know that shows all over the city this weekend are being cancelled. I was really hoping that we could hang in there. However, with the MTA closing down tomorrow at noon, and with the very real possibility that bridges and tunnels might also close, we've got no choice but to cancel the show. What's the point of having a show if people can't even get to it? And Broadcaster has to get to and from Providence. During a hurricane? What're you, some kind of a masochist?
Ideally we would like to reschedule this somewhere in the near future, with the same Dave Hill and the same bands performing. It is a pain in the ass to try and get so many schedule's to sync up, but I am tenacious and really hope we get a mulligan. Refund information to follow.

Dr. John at Bonnaroo (more by Graeme Flegenheimer)
Katrina activist Dr. John and friends are playing (ironically) a soulfire4thegulf benefit show at Public Assembly tonight (8/26) with Sera Solstice, Mz. Imani, and Aliza Hava and the Rhythm Shamans. Tickets are still available.
Tonight's show will be the last at Public Assembly until next week because the Brooklyn venue is closed for the weekend due to Hurricane Irene. All events scheduled to take place this Saturday and Sunday are postponed until further notice.
In other show cancellation news, Union Pool's Summer Thunder Series, which was scheduled to continue this Saturday with Blues Control, Soldiers of Fortune, Coconuts, and DJ Dream Weapon is cancelled. According to Union Pool's facebook, they will "work their hands chapped to reschedule the bill."

Just when it looked like Q-Tip (who recently cancelled a Brooklyn Bowl gig, a European tour and a Quicksilver free show appearance) was going to DJ a show this weekend, well, "The MJ party at irving plaza will be rescheduled due to irene. NYC." There will still be a 3-hour party in Prospect Park Saturday morning though.
Saturday and Sunday of the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival are both now cancelled (previously it was just Sunday).
Bethel Woods Center For the Arts has cancelled a Sunday night NY Pops concert, and they've postponed a wine festival scheduled for the same day. Saturday night's Stevie Nicks concert is still a go for now though.

Jonny Corndawg at Brooklyn Bowl in April (more by Chris La Putt)

"Ticket holders for Saturday and Sunday are invited to attend the Friday, August 26th event at Governors Island. The Governor of New York has issued a state emergency, therefore the DMB Caravan events on Saturday, August 27th and Sunday, August 28th have been postponed. We will announce the new Caravan Governors Island dates as soon as they have been confirmed. We will continue to post updates to the Caravan website as they are confirmed."There is of course temptation to be snarky here, but I do feel bad for all involved.
According to Toro y Moi and Das Racist, this weekend's free Afro-Punk festival is unfortunately cancelled due to Hurricane Irene. That said, as of this post, the festival itself hasn't said a word about it.

"Sorry to all at Pukkelpop who endured the disastrous storm. Tune-Yards will be back and we're sending strength out to those injured!" - merrill garbus
Translated to English by Google:
Pukkelpop is in deep mourning. We feel much sympathy to the families and friends of the victims. Words can not describe. We can therefore not easy to reconcile the festival continue to take place. Therefore, we decided to Pukkelpop 2011 for the rest of the weekend to stop.Tons of bands were set to play the Belgium festival on Friday and Saturday (and Thursday). Those include Deftones, Suicidal Tendencies, The Antlers, SBTRKT, WU Lyf, Crystal Castles, Eminem, Bouncing Souls, Fucked Up, Off!, A-Trak, The Kills, Lykke Li, Sebadoh, Mount Kimbie, Matthew Dear, Wild Beasts, Yuck, Twin Shadow, Odd Future, The Horrors, Blonde Redhead, Warpaint, and many, many more.
What happened here is exceptional and has been very unpredictable. We are very touched by all the spontaneous help that our festival goers and we received.
We call on all Pukkelpop Press on to a serene way back home again. There are extra buses and trains loaded to everyone back home.
Many of you are undoubtedly a lot of practical questions, we urge you to focus on this firstname.lastname@example.org .
We ask everyone to bring understanding to this very difficult decision.
