Bertrand Burgalat @ Pop Montreal 2012 (more by Dominick Mastrangelo)
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.

Heliotropes

To all Delinquency family, friends, performers, and promoters: We regret to inform that we have been forced to close temporarily and relocate all CMJ shows:(((( Please stay tuned for new show locations. We are supper bummed but will be back in a few weeks to continue spreading the loving party vibes and good times we have all shared this amazing summer. - [Delinquency Facebook]
As mentioned above, Bushwick venue Delinquency got shut down and will be closed for the time being, meaning all their CMJ shows are finding new homes. So far:

Tuesday's Permanent Wave/Greenpointers Blog/Campers' Rule Records showcase (10/16) with Heliotropes, Leda, Beach Day, Backwords, The Suzan and Easy Lover has been relocated to Public Assembly.

Wednesday's We Listen for You / The Needle Drop / Beats Per Minute day party (10/17) with Dent May, Mac Demarco, Teen Suicide, Poor Lily, The Deloreans, Attic and Abasement has also been moved to Public Assembly

No word yet on where Wednesday night's Mobil party (10/17 with Heems, Sasha Go Hard, Kitty Pryde + more) will end up, or Bird Dog day party on Thursday (10/18 with Ava Luna, Royal Canoe, Fegrus and Geronimo, Murals and more), or the Old Flame Records / Heist or Hit Record day party on Friday (10/19 w/ Caged Animals, Your Youth, Gross Relations and more) but Delinquency has been posting updates on their Facebook.

Deap Vally

As mentioned in What's Going on Monday, California rawk duo Deap Vally canceled tonight's Maxwell's show (10/15). But there will be no shortage of chances to see them this week, as their CMJ schedule boasts five shows, including the BrooklynVegan day party on Friday (10/19) at Public Assembly. They'll be on early (1:30 PM) and we'll be letting you in on the full schedule real soon.

They'll also play the Fader Fort at Converse Rubber Tracks Studio on 10/17, Bowery Ballroom on 10/18 with MNDR, MS MR, IO Echo, Sky Ferreira, and Gabriel Bruce, Rockwood Music Hall on Friday night (10/19) after our day party with Matthew and The Atlas, Foreign Fields, Matrimony, and KOOL A.D; and finally Cake Shop on Saturday afteroon (10/20) for the Village Voice party with Delicate Steve, Dent May, Heavenly Beat.

Willis Earl Beal

Willis Earl Beal was to play Bowery Ballroom tonight (10/9) but that show has been canceled and so far no explanation has been given as to why. No word on the remaining dates of his tour, which are listed below.

In happier news, last week we mentioned that Willis released a free EP, Principles of a Protagonist, which can be downloaded via BitTorrent client uTorrent. It's the soundtrack for his forthcoming, previously-mentioned animated short of the same name.

Screaming Females in LA earlier this month (more by Wei Shi)
Screaming Females

Some unfortunate news from Screaming Females...

Bad News

Since falling ill with mononucleosis in May, Marissa has been experiencing severe chronic pains that have rendered it very difficult for Screaming Females to tour. To ensure that Marissa has adequate time to heal so that Screaming Females can continue, it brings us great sadness to announce that all scheduled dates after October 10th will be cancelled. Thank you for understanding and we will see you all in the very near future.

Affected shows include the entire tour with Black Wine which was supposed to hit Maxwell's on November 11. Bummer to hear, but get well soon Marissa!

A list of all remaining dates is below.

Animal Collective at Prospect Park in 2011 (more by Vincent Cornelli)
Animal Collective

Animal Collective were scheduled to bring their tour with Micachu & the Shapes to Williamsburg Park tonight (10/5), but have cancelled. The band writes...

Hey everyone,

We really wish we didn?t have to be writing this right now, but after taking Dave to the doctor this morning it turns out that he has laryngitis and unfortunately we are unable to play the show tonight. We are already in the middle of trying to reschedule NY dates in the next couple of months to make up for this cancellation.

Due to circumstances beyond both our and the promoter's control, we are unable to honor the tickets for tonight's show. Fans that have tickets will be able to get full refunds at the place of purchase, and we will let everyone know as soon as we have new dates scheduled. Again, our sincere apologies to fans anticipating this show. We are always psyched to play NYC and will make it up to you.

-Animal Collective

Damn. Feel better Dave!

Micachu & The Shapes were supposed to open, but you can still catch them Monday at LPR. Micachu also DJs at Cameo tonight.

Animal Collective did play Fallon last night though. You can watch below...

John Legend on National Voter Registration Day

John Legend says:

Hey beautiful people,

I'm writing with a change of plans to share with you. As you all know, I've been working on my new album, Love in the Future, with Kanye and the rest of my creative team for a while now. I planned to release the album this Fall and go on tour to perform new songs from the album. We announced the dates before we'd finished the album because we were sure we'd finish the album in time. But, unfortunately, while the creative process has been exciting and I'm pretty certain we're going to deliver the best album of my career so far, the timing hasn't adhered to the schedule I originally envisioned. In other words, we're not done with the album. And my team and I have made the agonizing decision to put off the tour until 2013* when we know we will have the new music done and will be ready to fully unveil the creative vision through the album and the live experience.

I've never postponed a tour or done anything like this before. I've only missed a show due to illness a couple times in my eight-year career. I don't like letting my fans down, and I sincerely regret disappointing the thousands of you who have already spent your hard-earned money and gotten excited to see the show. Please know that we will try our best to make the music and the 2013 tour well worth the wait. In the meantime, ticket holders can get a refund on your ticket purchases now.

Thanks for your patience. I sincerely apologize if I've let any of you down. I'm going to get back to work and make sure we make this album the "best you've ever had."

John Legend was to be the first performer to play the Cushman & Wakefield Theater within the Barclays Center on October 29 which isn't happening now, and there doesn't appear to be any other "theater" shows on Barclays schedule for now. (though note: The Borgata Spa and Resort Event Center show in Atlantic City, NJ on Saturday October 27, 2012 is happening as originally scheduled.)

John Legend's tour opener was to be 2013 Mercury Prize nominee Lianne La Havas who is currently trying to put some headlining shows together in the wake of the tour cancellation. Stay tuned.

DeLon

Back in 2008 we posted a diss video by DeLon (watch it below), aimed at fellow Sri Lankan rapper M.I.A.. He mixed gruesome images with her popular song "Paper Planes" to get the point across that she was not a "freedom fighter", but in fact showing support for alleged terrorist group called the Tamil Tigers. M.I.A. responded, denying his accusations and claiming DeLon was just looking for publicity at her expense.

MIA and Delon

M.I.A. has continued to have an eventful life in the public spotlight since then, and DeLon (pictured above) is now just one of many on the long list of M.I.A. haters, but what has DeLon, who lives in Los Angeles, been up to for the past four years? Well, in addition to continuing his music career, which most recently included landing a spot on a tour with America's Got Talent artist Lindsey Stirling (I don't watch the show, so don't ask me who she is), DeLon has allegedly been dealing with "death threats and a vicious internet smear campaign aimed at destroying his reputation [that was] unleashed by Tiger supporters." Yeah, fun!

Now he says that campaign successfully cost him this latest tour. Today he announced that he was forced to quit the tour with Lindsey because "fans, sponsors and parents who took their kids to his concert were a Google search away from believing he was a criminal." In order to help clear his name, he has posted what looks like a letter from Sri Lanka Consul General Dr. Hector Weerasinghe in Los Angeles, which says DeLon is innocent of any crimes and backs up the allegations that "tactics" are being "used to vilify his character and sabotage his endeavors for peace". But now DeLon plans to take it even further and use his time off to work on scrubbing the dirt off the internet.

Check out a "news report" on YouTube that claims DeLon is a child predator, the original M.I.A. diss video, a video statement posted by DeLon today, and his full press release, below...

ATP

The first-ever ATP NY happened back in 2008, but up in the Catskills. That lasted three glorious years before moving to Asbury Park last year. Asbury Park was also great, but wasn't in the cards for 2012 so ATP moved the festival to NYC where it happens THIS WEEKEND at Pier 36 (you can see the location in the map above). Today's schedule looks like this:

Friday 21st September
Festival opens - 6.00pm

Stage 1:
Lightning Bolt - 8.30pm-9.00pm
Lee Ranaldo And Leah Singer Edan The Dee Jay - 9.15pm-10.15pm
Philip Glass And Tyondai Braxton - 10.45pm-11.15pm
Frank Ocean - 11.45pm-1.00am

Stage 2:
Kurt Braunholer - 7.05pm-7.25pm
Hannibal Buress - 7.30pm-7.55pm
Janeane Garofalo - 8.00pm-8.30pm

Films On Queen Of Hearts:
Koyaanisqatsi - 8.00pm
Quadrophenia - 10.00pm (featuring the brand new surround mix made by the Who)
+ Edan The Dee Jay

Poor Kurt B. And hopefully that 30 minute break between Glass and Ocean is enough time for the awkward changeover to happen. I mean, I love Frank and Philip, but I'm afraid that A LOT of Frank fans will be showing up just for his set, and many of them will have very little interest in the rest of the lineup, especially music you need to be very quiet during. Check out the full, three-day SCHEDULE. Get your TICKETS (THEY WILL BE AVAILABLE AT THE DOOR).

UPDATE: Lee Ranaldo has been replaced by Edan (a DJ who is also DJing later in the film room). We also recently found out Chavez was replaced by JEFF the Brotherhood on Saturday.

Listen to some music below...

Actress

Bummer news: tonight's Actress show at Cameo has been canceled "due to Visa issues" and "will be rescheduled to a later date. For those who purchased advanced tickets, you will receive an email with the option for a refund within the next few days. New date will be announced soon."

Meanwhile, Werkhaus reports:

Moiré (soon to be releasing on Werkdiscs) & ACTRESS have been secretly working on a score, invited by Tate Collective and the infamous immersive theatre co Punchdrunk, to collaborate as part of a live event with art, performance art and music this Saturday, 22nd Sept. Punchdrunk have in turn choreographed a live performance to the score. A first for us!
Werkdiscs is the label co-founded by Darren J. Cunningham, aka Actress. As for Moiré, not much is known but you can check out his (her? their?) "A number of Patterns" mixtape below.

Tornado

Authorities have issued tornado watches for the New York City metropolitan area as intense winds and rain and possible severe thunderstorms bear down on the region.

The tornado watch for the city, Sullivan, Rockland and Orange counties and all of New Jersey is in effect until 7 p.m. The watch was expanded Tuesday afternoon to include Westchester, Nassau, Suffolk, Ulster, Dutchess and Putnam counties in New York and Fairfield County in Connecticut. Those later tornado watches expire at 11 p.m.

Half-inch-sized hail, dangerous lightning and wind gusts of up to 70 mph are possible with this storm, meteorologists say. [NBC]

The Avett Brothers were scheduled to play outside at Rumsey Playfield aka Central Park Summerstage this evening (9/18), but Bowery Presents reports that the sold out show "has been rescheduled for 9/24 at 7:30. All tickets purchased will be honored at the gate on Monday night."

Samothrace

"Samothrace is very sorry to announce that we will have to cancel our part on the upcoming tour with Pallbearer and Royal Thunder due to an immediate illness in the family of a band member. The most important thing right now is family. We are stoked to have had the opportunity to do the tour and will be planning to make our way out east in the near future. We appreciate the understanding."
The cancellation includes their previously discussed date at Knitting Factory on 9/11. Tickets are still available for that show, which also features Inter Arma.

Big Freedia at Santos, May 2011 (more by Chris La Putt)
Big Freedia

Unfortunately due to the inclement weather in the Gulf region, Big Freedia cancelled her appearance aboard the Rocks Off Boat Cruise scheduled for tomorrow (8/29). So far no indication regarding a makeup date.

Le1f was to open the canceled Rocks Off cruise, but you can catch him opening for Das Racist at Irving Plaza on September 27.

I Break Horses at T5, May 2012 (More by Fred Pessaro // BBG)
I Break Horses

As tipped off by a commenter in our post about Psychic Paramount and confirmed by their publicist, but Sweden's I Break Horses have canceled their upcoming North American tour which included an appearance at ATP NY. Bummer. Not sure as to why, but we do hope you come back as soon as you can.

All affected dates are listed below...

Junip at Bowery Ballroom in 2011 (more by Winnie Cheung)
Jose Gonzalez

We're very excited to have finished writing and recording our second album with Junip. Currently we're working on the artwork and b-sides to upcoming releases. We had plans on trying out the songs live this autumn but circumstances beyond our control prevent us from touring. Apologies to those of you who had plans on going to the announced shows. As for now the Berlin, New York and LA dates will be cancelled. José's soloshow at I'll Be Your Mirror in New York on Sep 22nd will however go on as planned.

José, Elias, Tobias

Well that's a bummer. Jose Gonzalez will stil play ATP NY (Sept. 21 - 23) but his show with his Junip project at Le Poisson Rouge on October 10 is canceled. Come back soon, Junip!

Baroness at Terminal 5 in May (more by Joe McCabe)
Baroness

Earlier this week, we posted an update from Baroness showing that things were looking upwards for the band. Unfortunately though, with two members having broken vertebrae and frontman John Baizely having a broken arm and leg, it doesn't come as much of a surprise that Baroness have in fact cancelled some of their upcoming North American tour dates, including their NYC show at House of Vans and LA's FYF Fest. They will not be replaced on the House of Vans lineup, which happens on August 29 and now just includes Turbonegro, Doomriders, and Nightbirds. This is a bummer but it makes sense that the band takes the time they need to recover, and we wish them a speedy and successful recovery!

Meanwhile, FYF Fest, which Wild Flag also dropped off of, recently expanded its lineup. It now features The Faint (who just announced they'll be reissuing Danse Macabre and touring the album), Glass Candy, King Tuff, and newcomers The Orwells. Tickets for FYF Fest are still available. The updated lineup and flier are below.

Tonight's forecast
Weather

Just when we were getting you excited by the slight possibility of a Marshall Mathers appearance at tonight's Slaughterhouse show at The Well, Mother Nature has stepped in with a different agenda:

Due to inclement weather (including reports of severe thunderstorms and potential flooding this evening), The Well, located at 272 Meserole Street in Brooklyn, regretfully reports that our outdoor show featuring hip hop supergroup SLAUGHTERHOUSE, previously scheduled for this evening, August 10, has been postponed until Saturday, September 8.

We greatly regret any inconvenience this change causes. All tickets purchased for the August 10 show will be valid for the September 8 show.

Well there goes that.

Meanwhile other outdoor shows, like tonight's Little Dragon / Frankie Rose show at Prospect Park and the StePhest Colbchella show on the Intrepid with Flaming Lips, Grizzly Bear and Santigold, continue on rain or shine.

UPDATE: Lollapalooza reopens gates at 6pm (Chicago time)

Lollapalooza

Due to an approaching storm and warnings from the National Weather Service (NWS), Lollapalooza organizers have suspended the festival until further notice. Festival-goers are being evacuated from Grant Park and are being directed by staff and the Chicago Police Department to pre-established underground evacuation and shelter sites along Michigan Avenue.

The three emergency evacuation shelters are the Grant Park North, Grant Park South and East Monroe Street Garages. All can be entered through vehicle entrances on Michigan Avenue.

Lollapalooza officials are continuing to coordinate with the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications (OEMC) to monitor weather conditions and determine when the park is safe for festival-goers to return.

"Our first priority is always the safety of our fans, staff and artists," said Shelby Meade, communications director for C3 Presents, the promoter behind Lollapalooza. "We regret having to suspend any show, but safety always comes first."

This announcement definitely came as a surprise to the tens of thousands of people in Grant Park, who are evacuating as we speak. Meanwhile, C3 are "working w/ our team & city officials to survey the park after the storm to determine if it is safe for festival goers to return today." Stay tuned.

UPDATE: At 5:43 (Chicago time), Chicago journalist Greg Kot says "Possible reopen at 6 ish is latest word but still raining. A remote entrance gate open, apparently was never closed #lolla"

UPDATE: Lollapalooza reopens gates at 6pm (Chicago time)

Check out our pictures from yesterday, the first day of Lolla, HERE.

The Soft Pack

Bummer news: tonight's River Rocks show with Oberhofer, The Soft Pack and Royal Bangs has been canceled due to the Severe Thunderstorm watch that is in effect for this evening.

Soft Pack fans... they're playing Friday (7/27) and Saturday (7/28) at Union Pool.

Emil Amos of Om, before and after the accident
Emil Amos

Om reluctantly announce they will be postponing their upcoming tour dates following a skateboarding injury sustained by drummer Emil Amos. The trio, which is rounded out by bassist/vocalist Al Cisneros and multi-instrumentalist Robert AA Lowe, are working on rescheduling the full run starting in mid-November.

Get well soon Emil! Until then, at least we can crank some tracks from their new LP Adviatic Songs, out now on Drag City.

A list of postponed dates, which included Music Hall of Williamsburg on August 29, and song streams are below.

Dethklok
Dethklok

There were rumors this was going to happen, and then it was denied, but now it is official:

Due to the continued incarceration of LAMB OF GOD singer Randy Blythe in the Czech Republic, the band's co-headline tour with Dethklok scheduled to begin August 1st in Seattle is being cancelled. The band regrets the decision but the uncertainty of Randy's release makes it impossible to carry on with the tour. Upon Randy's release, it is the band's intention to rebook a tour in the fall and at this time the band fully intends to participate in the Mayhem Cruise in December.

LAMB OF GOD wishes to thank Dethklok, Adult Swim and Gojira for their support and patience as well as all of the promoters who had dates on the tour. Last but certainly not least, the band thanks all of the fans who bought tickets for the tour and who have been supportive of Randy and the band over the last month that Randy has been held in Prague. Without the fans, there is no LAMB OF GOD.
Adult Swim adds:
In light of circumstances beyond our control, the upcoming Dethklok and Lamb of God with Gojira summer tour has been canceled. Refunds will be available to customers who already purchased tickets through their point of purchase. We thank Dethklok fans for their continued support and look forward to releasing information about the band's upcoming third album and a planned fall tour in the coming weeks.
Gojira was scheduled to open the NYC show at Roseland Ballroom on August 29.

Os Mutantes

The Well, located at 272 Meserole Street in Brooklyn, regretfully reports that our show featuring Brazilian rock legends OS MUTANTES (previously scheduled for July 28) has been indefinitely postponed due to artist illness.

We greatly regret any inconvenience this cancellation causes. For all ticket buyers who purchased tickets via credit card, your purchase will be refunded automatically over the next few days. If you run into problems with this refund or purchased a ticket with cash, please follow up with us via email at refunds@thewicknyc.com

M.A.K.U. Soundsystem, DOM, and Citay were also scheduled to play the cancelled Well show, and we assume then that the Other Music Os Mutantes show will also be cancelled.

DOWNLOAD: The Toothaches - Pretty and Loud (MP3)

Tootchaches

To quote a June 7th press release in my inbox:

With the release of their debut studio album, O! Be Joyful (ORG Music), earlier this week, THE TOOTHACHES have unleashed their dynamic, dance-punk sound on the masses.

Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, THE TOOTHACHES are a five-piece band comprised of Zimmy (Guitar, Vocals), Rose (Keys, Vocals), Monica (Tambo, Glock, Vocals), Kiril (Drums, Vocals) and Chris (Bass, Vocals).
Chris, full name Christopher Rapoza, was one of the many shot by that psychopath in Colorado... To quote Gothamist:
With New Yorkers feeling the aftereffects of Wednesday's horrible massacre in Aurora, Colorado, it turns out at least two area residents were among the survivors. Christopher Rapoza, a musician from Brooklyn, and Stephen Barton, a Southbury, Connecticut native and recent Syracuse University graduate, were both at the midnight showing of The Dark Knight Rises when suspected gunman James Holmes began shooting; both were shot, but are recovering.

Rapoza, who plays bass for local punk band The Toothaches and was in Colorado on a trip with his girlfriend, received a grazing wound on his back during the shooting and was treated at an area hospital. He linked to photos of his wound and bloodied t-shirt on Reddit (and as the photos show, he's lucky!), "I'm doing all right just a little shook up," he wrote on the site. "Me and my girlfriend waited until it seemed the shooting was finished so we were some of the last people out of the theatre and there was a lot of blood." He had also posted on Facebook, "Perry and I were just at a midnight showing of Batman in Colorado when some f***ing psycho decided to open fire on the crowd. "I was grazed in the back with a bullet but am fine. Perry is unscathed, but unfortunately has lost her shoes. A lot of other people weren't so lucky."

So glad to hear Stephen and Chris and Perry (and many others) came out of there okay, and of course our condolences go out to all the families and friends of those who didn't.

The Toothaches, who maybe you caught at Hillstock in June or at Aputumpu Fest in March, cancelled a 7/20 NYC show at The Bitter End due to the shooting, but are still scheduled to play on 7/28 at Big Mouth in Brooklyn with Eula, Celestial Shore, and many more, and on 8/9 at Shea Stadium. You can download "Pretty and Loud" from their new album above.

Refused

Not surprisingly, Refused / OFF tonight at Williamsburg Park is, um, off. No word on a reschedule, but prepare for the inevitable "secret show" rumors on Twitter in 3.... 2.... 1... UPDATE: and here it is. Show is now at Europa!

At least you can catch Refused in their television debut tonight on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and refunds for the Brooklyn show are being offered.

Refused and OFF! also had their Philly Riot Fest show pulled out from under them. That was supposed to happen tomorrow.

Hopefully the Thursday show at Williamsburg Park, and the Riot Fest coming up there, fare better.

The outdoor show on the Intrepid is also cancelled.

You can go see JEFF the Brotherhood at Santos for free instead, or other stuff.

"Due to this insane weather and the fact that the Intrepid show is outdoors, the concert is officially postponed. We will let you know as soon as we have a new date! Thanks for your patience and support."

Refused & OFF! is also cancelled, and is now going to happen at the much smaller Europa.
