Record Fair

oh man:

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 at Terminal 5 in 2011 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
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."

Louis CK

Louis CK was set to wrap up his run at the New York City Center tonight but has postponed until March 2. Here's a letter he wrote about it:

Dear New York ticket holding folks....

Okay. I thought about this very carefully and I really started to worry about making 4300 people come into midtown manhattan on Sunday night, which is just when the stormatron 5000 is supposed to crush our empire. Things i worry about include that Mass transit might shut down in all of New york, at 7pm tomorrow, stranding everyone who comes to the shows and that the second show ends at midnight, sending people back home just as it's starting to pick up.

I know that a lot of people are excited to come and they are fine with taking the chance but I really don't want a pole to smash your face in because you saw some comedy.
So i asked the City Center (where the shows are supposed to happen) if we could find another date for tomorrow's shows and they gave me March 2nd. The City Center, being really cool, has agreed to let us do the shows on that night and your tickets that you now hold will be honored on that night. the same seat, same everything. If you can't come on that night, we will either do another show soon after that, or find another show for you in the area in the future. Or you still have the option to get a full refund for your ticket. If you already asked for a refund, we can reinstate your ticket if you want to go to one of those shows.

Listen. I know that probably tomorrow it's going to be a starry clear night and the trains are going to be just gliding up and down the traks and a baby zebra is going to whinny as he trots by the City Center on a night that is going to break records for being placid and perfect for a night of comedy. And I'm going to feel like an asshole. And I know that some people had their plans set and are going to be pissed off at me. I know. but I also know that some of you are struggling with whether to come in or miss the show and this is the closest I can get to a solution. You don't have to take a chance and you don't have to miss the show. Just come see me in a few months.

If it's any consolation, I'm eating a pretty staggering fee for cancelling the show. But I can take it. What I can't take is the thought that there's a CHANCE 4300 people will be in danger trying to get home from my stupid show.

Please email molly@etix.com and tell us what you want to do, and ask any question you have.

So that's that. Cancelled. Rescheduled. Please forgive me. Please be safe.

Your dumb friend

Louis CK

Lots of other stuff is cancelled too.

Blue Oyster Cult

Ten years? That's impressive. Twenty? Dedication. But forty? That's commendable. Legendary hard rockers Blue Oyster Cult are touring and were set to celebrate their 40th anniversary at a NYC show tonight (10/28) at Best Buy Theater, but it has been postponed to November 5th due to hurricane. Expect "special guests and other surprises." Tickets are still available.

They were also scheduled to appear at iHeartRadio Theatre on 10/30, but that small capacity radio contest/streaming show is cancelled, though the invite says a new date will be scheduled too.

The appearances are also in celebration of the band's new boxset, Blue Öyster Cult - The Columbia Albums Collection, which gathers the band's fourteen Columbia releases with newly remastering jobs and bonus material. All tour dates and some classic video below...

To quote singer Jessie Lauren Stein's tweet, "You're on the guestlist! Pass it on!"

Updated Luyas tour dates are below.

P.O.S. at Fun Fun Fun Fest 2010 (more by Tim Griffin)
P.O.S.

Rapper P.O.S. (aka Stefon Alexander) was supposed to tour this November and would have hit NYC on November 7 at Irving Plaza, but he was forced to cancel his entire tour due to trouble with his kidneys. He needed an immediate transplant and found some candidates for kidney donation but it, of course, is a very expensive operation and he's asking for your help...

In October of 2012, Stef made a public announcement about his health. His kidneys had been lousy for a long time, he explained. Ever since he was a kid, they had been deteriorating, though no one was sure exactly why. Recently, however, his condition worsened. His doctors told him that it was time for a transplant--and quickly. Stef had to cancel his fall tour and begin dialysis immediately.

The good news: Stef has found several strong candidates for kidney donation. The less-than-totally-good news: this stuff gets pretty damn expensive. Transplants create life-long prescription costs. And, as you'd imagine, rappers don't have robust benefit packages. So, we've started this portal to allow people to donate to Stef's recovery. The funds will be used to help pay medical bills, prescription costs, and to cover living expenses while Stef is off the road, getting better. Any money raised will go directly to him. Many of you reading this have already donated--thank you. It's meant the world to Stef, his family, his crew, and the rest of us rooting for him.

You can help Stef out by donating here. He's just over halfway toward his $25,000 goal as of this post, with 120 day left. A video of him explaining his health situation and tour cancellation is below....

Ghoul sprays the crowd with blood at MDF 2012 (more by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
Ghoul

We are very sorry to announce that we have to cancel our appearance at St Vitus in Brooklyn this coming Sunday (10/21) due to massive shitdickery on our part. We'll try to make it up to anyone who was planning on going in the coming year. There's still an awesome show happening with Satan's Satyrs, No Stayer, and Destroyed In Seconds, so by all means go to the show! And if you don't mind traveling a little we will still be playing at NJDF on Saturday night. Right across the river. One PATH Train ride and you're there. -[Ghoul]
Sad to hear it. The ticket page still list Ghoul as part of the show, so no word as to refunds, etc. right now

Of course there are a few metal shows going on in NYC on that Saturday night (10/20) if you dont head to New Jersey, including the BV-BBG showcase with Yakuza, Royal Thunder, and many others (tickets).

Bertrand Burgalat

Zut alors! Bertrand Burgalat's CMJ appearances (tonight [10/16] at the "France Rocks!" party, tomorrow [10/17] at Fat Baby) have been "postponed" according to a post last night on BB's Facebook. These were to be his first NYC shows in 10+ years. Let's hope Bertrand gets whatever issues he's having sorted out and have him over soon. (I am personally really bummed.) His new album, Toutes Directions (listen on Spotify), is quite good.

The rest of tonight's France Rocks! show (Yan Wagner and Juveniles (UPDATE, they canceled too), who are both supposed to be quite good live, and We Are Evergreen) is still happening and if you want to go it's free with RSVP. Tomorrow (10/17) at Highline Ballroom, there is another showcase of French bands, headlined Air side project World of Tomorrow.
