Apostle of Solitude
Everyone, I have some bad news: due to a serious illness in his family, Jason has had to go to Utah for a couple of weeks, and we have to drop off SHoD XI [Stoner Hands of Doom] and the Slow Southern Steel premiere in NYC. I hope that you all understand... it's not something that we wanted to do, frankly we'd hoped to start getting busy again... but family has to come first. - [Karl of The Gates of Slumber]Quite the past few weeks for BrooklynVegan metal events, with Loss cancelling their appearance at Saint Vitus (and subsequently being replaced by Unearthly Trance) and now the cancellation of The Gates of Slumber. Luckily, we roll deep and The Gates of Slumber will be replaced by fellow Indiana doom breathren Apostle of Solitude!
Apostle of Solitude's last LP, Last Sunrise, saw release on Profound Lore Records last year, and the band recently released a pair of splits with Dawnrider, Rituals of the Oak, and The Flight of Sleipnir. For the unfamiliar, Check out some audio of the old-school doom band (featuring members of The Gates of Slumber) below.
As discussed, CT of Rwake will be in the house to present his film Slow Southern Steel, so expect this Arkansas madman to do some collaboratiing with either Cough, Apostle of Solitude or Earthling on stage. Doors are at 10PM, tickets are on sale (limited seats available), and there will be a bunch of free Jagermeister for all of you maniacs.
Cough, Apostle of Solitude and Earthling are all on board for Stoner Hands of Doom XI, an annual festival in Frederick MD. The show will feature numerous doom luminaries over its three days (August 12-14), including Earthride, Hour of 13 and Windhand among many others. Windhand is also scheduled to play Acheron on August 19th.
Check out some streaming audio, alongside the film trailer below...
"Brooklyn, due to scheduling errors we will no longer be playing the House of Vans show that was originally announced for Thurs August 25th and is now changed to a day earlier on Weds August 24th. We promise to make it up in the near future. See you soon." -[All Pigs Must Die]That leaves Cold Cave and Converge on the 8/24 lineup with two bands TBA.
APMD added a new show on Oct 1st in New London, Connecticut supporting Integrity with Salvation, Incendiary, Shoot to Kill & Revenge. All dates below...

As you know, Escape to New York had to cancel the third day of their inaugural festival on Sunday. Here is the official statement:
Escape to NY Sunday (pic via thinkmgazine)
Yesterday it was officially announced that next weekend's East Hampton MTK music fetival was cancelled, AND THAT tickets would be honored at this weekend's Southampton music festival Escape to NY which wasn't exactly packing them in, especially on Friday. Well, so much for that plan. Escape to NY has just officially cancelled today, alledgedly due to all the rain that soaked the grounds last night and the rain that's still coming too. The cancellation came after a long delayed opening that had people sitting in the parking lot waiting to finally hear the news. Of Montreal was among the bands set to perform at the fest tonight.
Dana (Distortion) Yavin was onsite all weekend taking pictures for BrooklynVegan and is on her way home as we speak with shots from day one and day two. Stay tuned.
P.S. Q-Tip has also cancelled his Brooklyn Bowl DJ gig tonight, but will be replaced by Reptar and a DJ set by Talib Kweli.
Q-Tip @ Brooklyn Hip Hop Fest (more by Brook Bobbins)
"Unfortunately we have recently been told that Q-tip will have to cancel his planned tour of Europe this summer. This means he will not be appearing at The Øya festival in August. This is sad news, first of all for the fans. We know that many of you have been looking forward to seeing Q-tip in the Medieval park. We have not yet recieved much information concerning the cancellation, but we have been told that this is a health related matter as the artist has to go through an operation around the same time that The Øya Festival takes place. As you can understand, this is entirely beyond our control. We hope Q-tip will soon recover, and that he will be able to guest Øya at a later date." [Oya]Q-Tip was supposed to hit Oya Fest in Norway, Flow Festival in Finland, Way Out West in Sweden, and a bunch of other festivals on a tour that was set to last August 11 - 27. Lots of disappointed Europeans right now. That said, Q-Tip says "The european tour is currently being rescheduled. Even in festival cities."
UPDATE: Q-Tip cancelled his Brooklyn Bowl DJ gig too, but will be replaced by Reptar and a DJ set by Talib Kweli
The MTK: Music To Know Festival planned for Saturday - Sunday, August 13 - 14, in East Hampton, New York, is cancelled. A statement is as follows:Strangely Escape to NY, the other new Hamptons music festival, is going on as planned as we speak. Patti Smith and Best Coast played it last night.
"It is with heavy, heavy heart that we regret to inform you that the inaugural MTK: Music To Know Festival in East Hampton will not take place. Despite our unique vision and arranging a world-class line-up, ticket sales were not adequate to allow the event to continue. We wanted to let everyone know now before engaging more deeply.
Along with our ticket holders, vendors, sponsors, business associates, colleagues and friends in the community, we too are filled with deep disappointment. We pledge to endure during this difficult time with the same integrity and professionalism displayed throughout the creation of this event.
Ticket holders should check www.musictoknow.com next week for more information.
The MTK Fest's lineup included Vampire Weekend, Chromeo, Dawes, Bright Eyes, M Ward, Ra Ra Riot, Fitz and the Tantrums, Matt and Kim and more.
Truck America, another NY Festival, was cancelled last week (though no official announcement has been made about that yet).
Band of Horses in Toronto in 2010 (more)
As you may have heard, Caleb Followill of Kings of Leon walked off stage at their show in Dallas, TX on Friday (7/29) after saying he was going to go backstage, vomit, and return for three more songs.
"While KoL's fans stood in the dead heat, precious Caleb was carried off to his all-white dressing room where slaves hand fed him Evian ice cubes and fanned him with swan feathers while spritzing his face with 60º Perrier from a crystal bottle." [Dlisted]Caleb never returned and Jared Followill then told the crowd, "I don't know what to say. It's not our fault. It's Caleb. He can't play." Jared then tweeted, "Dallas, I cannot begin to tell you how sorry I am. There are internal sicknesses & problems that have needed to be addressed. No words." Jared again tweeted, admitting, "I love our fans so much. I know you guys aren't stupid. I can't lie. There are problems in our band bigger than not drinking enough Gatorade." The band continued to cancel their next two shows, both Saturday (7/30) and Sunday (7/31). Since canceling those dates, the band have gone on to cancel the rest of their entire tour, which was with Band of Horses.
A message on KoL's website reads:
We are so sorry to say Kings of Leon are canceling their entire US tour due to Caleb Followill suffering from vocal issues and exhaustion. The band is devastated, but in order to give their fans the shows they deserve, they need to take this break. Unfortunately, the US dates cannot be rescheduled due to the band's international tour schedule. Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. Tickets purchased online or via phones will be automatically refunded. The band will resume touring in Canada at the Rogers Center in Vancouver, BC, on September 28th. That show was originally schedule for September 14th.The cancelled shows include Nikon at Jones Beach Theater on August 10 and PNC Bank Arts Center on August 17. According to Ticketmaster/Livenation, any tickets purchased by Ticketmaster Charge-By-Phone or Ticketmaster.com will be automatically credited back to the card used to order them. All tickets purchased at the box office or a Ticketmaster Ticket Center must be returned to the point of purchase to receive a refund.
Nathan Followill confirmed it's just a break and not a breakup, when he tweeted "Bummed about the tour not happening. So sorry 4 all the fans. We just need some rest. Thanks 4 understanding. WE ARE NOT BREAKING UP!" Despite the fact that the band reports the tour was cancelled so Caleb could rest his voice, US Weekly reports that a source tells them his bandmates are urging him to go to rehab. The source says Caleb "drinks like a fish."
Fortunately, Band of Horses are working on scheduling some club dates to make up for the cancelled tour. They wrote on their facebook:
Hey there Friends Of BoH! First off, we're sorry for the lag on updating everyone. We're thrilled by all the support you're showing us, and have been working behind the scenes to do everything we can to come see you. Unfortunately, we won't be able to hit up all of the places we'd planned on visiting with Kings of Leon. BUT!!! We're happy to announce that we're going to play SOME SHOWS!!!The new dates include a show at Hammerstein Ballroom on August 10 (which is at least way better than Jones Beach). Tickets for the NYC show go on sale Friday (8/5) at noon.
We're playing FT. LAUDERDALE AND CHARLOTTE THIS WEEK! Details are below. We're working on adding more, and will have another update very soon.
We would like to thank Kings Of Leon for the opportunity to play the shows we did, and wish them all the best.
p.s. We're hoping to provide a special treat to the fans coming out to these new dates. Stay tuned and thank you!
BoH also wants you to help them pick their setlists for the new shows. Because they had planned on playing shorter sets of their more popular songs on the Kings of Leon tour, they now have time to play some of their lesser known cuts. Check out the list of songs to choose from and more details on how to submit your choices at their facebook.

The 2011 Truck America Festival, set to take place in the Catskills from Septeber 9-11, has been CANCELLED. The Hold Steady, Okkervil River, Ra Ra Riot, Wye Oak, The Felice Brothers, and many more were set to play what would have been the UK festival's second year in America. Though no official reason has been given, a source says it was not due to ticket sales, but rather related to a not-so-great turnout at the July UK version of the fest.
Unearthly Trance at Union Pool (more by Johnathan McPhail)
Good news/bad news. Bad news first. Due to an injury sustained by one of the band members that will require surgery, Loss have cancelled their scheduled 8/6 appearance at Saint Vitus . The band apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and they plans to make up the date in the near future. Best to the band as we raise our glasses for a speedy recovery.
The good news? Unearthly Trance has been ressurected from the "live show" grave and will return to the stage in Loss's stead! The show will be Unearthly Trance's first appearance since hitting Japan for the Extreme The Dojo tour with High on Fire & Melvins that saw them on the front lines of the Japanese earthquake and ensuing tsunami. The last time that Unearthly Trance played NYC was with Doomriders/Sweet Cobra at Union Pool.
In related news, all three members of Unearthly Trance ALSO have a new band, Serpentine Path, featuring Tim Bagshaw of ex-Electric Wizard/current-Ramesses infamy. Check out pictures of their jam sessions at their blog.
Show flyer and some video is below.
As mentioned, Montreal band Parlovr was supposed to play Glasslands in Brooklyn on Saturday night. As you can see in the message above, they never made it. Later that night they announced that "the van lives...............maybe." They've been quiet since, but hopefully that means they will in fact make it to Mercury Lounge tonight (Monday, 7/25). UPDATE: They say they will be there.
After NYC they jump on tour with Handsome Furs, though not for very long. All tour dates below...
Javelin at Mercury Lounge in May (more by Chris La Putt)
We recently mentioned that Mount Eerie will play September 26 at Le Poisson Rouge (tickets). He's since announced a Brooklyn show happening a few days earlier on September 21 at 285 Kent Ave. Still no full tour announcement.
Javelin will also play 285 Kent, but on September 17, after finishing up a short West Coast tour in August with Hollagramz and Pictureplane, whose Brooklyn show with Teengirl Fantasy and Gatekeeper was just moved to 285 Kent.
The Javelin/Pictureplane/Hollagramz West Coast tour intersects with the previously announced Tri Angle tour on August 16 at Echoplex in LA. That tour was scheduled to have Holy Other, oOoOO and Tri Angle DJs, though due to health issues Holy Other has had to cancel his US shows, Mercury Lounge and PS1 included. A message on Tri Angle's site reads:
"We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but regretfully it's our job to announce that Holy Other has had to cancel all of his upcoming US dates due to ill health. Holy Other is still planning on playing shows in the US in the foreseeable future, but circumstance has unfortunately made it impossible for Holy Other to fulfill the shows he had scheduled for July / August. Consequently Tri Angle DJs have also had to pull out from the forthcoming shows. oOoOO will still be playing, and a suitable replacement support act is currently being figured out. We hope you understand. Thanks."oOoOO plays NYC (without Holy Other) on August 11 at Mercury Lounge and August 13 at PS1 with Tri Angle labelmates Clams Casino, Ayshay, and Water Borders. Tickets for the Mercury show are still on sale and advanced tickets for the PS1 show are available at locations listed below.

Matt Pinfield @ RXP concert in 2009 (more by Tim Griffin)
Last month it was announced that "RXP TakLiberty Festival" would take place on September 18 at NJ's PNC Banks Arts Center with Coldplay, The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Two Door Cinema Club, The Kooks, and more. According to RXP's website, the show is now cancelled "due to unforseen circumstances". Refunds are available at the point of purchase.
"It was so strange that the concert was announced a day before the news that WRXP was being sold. Then it was promoted for over a week. I'm surprised Emmis let this happen. This must represent a lot of work down the drain for some of WRXP's staff. I feel bad for them."Back on June 21st the Daily News reported:
The future of New York's only contemporary rock radio station, WRXP (101.9 FM), was tossed into the mosh pit today when Emmis sold a controlling interest to a new radio group run by ultra-colorful radio entrepreneur Randy Michaels.The Village Voice then said that, "It's not too much of a stretch to assume....that the station will change formats before the RXP Takliberty Festival's scheduled date of September 18, hence the cancellation."
WRXP has been a rock station since Feb. 5, 2008, when Emmis terminated its former smooth jazz format. The station has struggled to find an audience in a town not known for rock radio, but in recent months had shown significant ratings gains.
Merlin Media, which is paying $110-$130 million for a controlling interest in WRXP and two Chicago stations, made no announcement today on the format at WRXP.
Leslie Fram, program director, said that for now the station will continue rocking.
Well, they were right. The Daily News has reported today:
Don't tell Leslie Fram a contemporary rock station can't work on New York radio - even though the one she has programmed for the last 3-1/2 years ends its run Thursday, apparently to be replaced by news aimed at soccer moms.RIP WRXP
WRXP (101.9 FM), which switched from smooth jazz to rock in February 2008, is being sold by Emmis to Merlin Media, and while the deal hasn't closed yet, Merlin takes over the programming Friday.
Listeners will hear music for a couple of weeks until Merlin launches its new format, expected to be all or mostly news targeting women in their 30s and 40s.
On the surface, this change might seem to again support the often-heard mantra that when it comes to radio music, New York is a rhythm town, not a rock town.
Fram, a WRXP host as well as program director, says she sees every indication that's not true.
She notes that for the last three months, an average of about 2.3 million people per week at some point tuned to WRXP. While that's about half the audience for WHTZ, WLTW or WKTU, it's not a small number.
"There are a lot of rock fans in this area," Fram says. "[Classic rock] WAXQ is a fine station, but there was room for us, too.
"We wanted to be the heritage rock station for people who grew up in the '90s or later, and we could have. Without us now, where will you hear a new Eddie Vedder or Mumford and Son?"

"Sorry to everyone planning on seeing us in Pittsburgh and New York, but our van has been broken down since Friday. We are currently held up at a hotel in Fremont, IN, and our van should be fixed as early as Monday. We plan to make the show in Allston, MA on Tuesday." - BongripperBongripper will be forced to celebrate the release of their new Sex Tape / Snuff Film 7" elsewhere. They were supposed to play two NYC shows before MA, but their East Coast tour has ground to a halt. The show must go on though. The Sunday night (7/10) Brooklyn show at Acheron will now feature Wizardry and Iron Thrones . No word on another band at the Monday night (7/12) Precious Metal show at Lit Lounge with Bezoar and Dutchguts.
Bongripper played the Empty Bottle in their native Chicago on July 1st with Hate, Detergen, and DJ Dave Hofer. Pictures from that show are in this post. More of them, with a stream of their new 7" and all tour dates, below..
The full PS1 lineup for this Saturday, July 9th is:
Four Tet / Domino / London, UK"Due to unseen circumstances Matthewdavid isn't able to make to PS1 this weekend." No replacement has been announced yet.
Falty DL / Planet Mu / New York, NY
SBTRKT / Young Turks / London, UK
Bronze / RVNG Intl / San Francisco, CA
Matthewdavid / Brainfeeder / Los Angeles, CA
TURRBOTAX® DJs / New York, NY
I actually came across this other band named Moonface (from Providence, Rhode Island) while looking for info for our last Moonface post. Moonface, the one we were writing about, is the new Spencer Krug project. At first I thought maybe Spencer (of Wolf Parade fame) had accidentaly used a band name that was already taken, but then I saw that this other Moonface appear to be even newer. They haven't even played one show yet, have been on Twitter less than two months and so for only have demos posted on their BandCamp. They need to change their name (and do a better job of Googling).
Spencer's Moonface released an EP in 2010 via Jagjaguwar (announced in 2009) and is now well known to Google and the indie rock world. To make matters worse (and the reason I'm writing this post in the first place), the Rhode Island band is confusing people and even getting booked by people who think that they're booking Spencer. Not only is Spencer NOT playing Glasslands on August 13th, neither is the Moonface from Rhode Island since Glasslands realized that was who they accidentally booked to headline the Saturday night show which is now cancelled.
"pretty sure this thai food just gave me the plague." -El-P
As you may have noticed (it happened a few weeks ago I think), The Streets cancelled his forthcoming appearance with El-P at Terminal 5. The show was billed as The Streets' "last ever North American show". Whether that means the end of The Streets live for this continent remains to be seen, but we'll keep you posted.
Another bum-out was that the T5 shows was twitter favorite El-P's only current date while he crafts his forthcoming LP. That hasn't changed (so far), but bad news turned to good news when El-P posted the above picture last week with the caption of "stay tuned, nyc".
Well, stay tuned no longer, as Company Flow will reunite at NYC's Santos Party House on July 16th, and tickets are on sale. The show makes TWO upcoming appearances for Company Flow who will also appear at ATP in the UK a few days after Santos.
Company Flow will bring along with them Fondle 'Em faves/Indelible MCs co-conspirators The Juggaknots (!), as well as "many old friends and special guests still to be announced!!!!". Now we just need Siah & Yeshua DapoED and MF Doom on the bill, and my 1996 dreams will be fulfilled. Juggaknots released the classic Clear Blue Skies LP via Fondle 'Em Records in the 90s, an essential piece of underground hip hop from that era.
In other El-P news, the MC recent collaborated with artist Travis Millard who is responsible for the recent Megapuss art and blessed El-P's Weareallgointoburninhellmegamixx2. Check out the video (with some killer El-P instrumentals) that promotes Millard's art show at Fecal Face Dot Gallery in San Francisco below.
"Seefeel and Warp are extremely saddened to announce the cancellation of Seefeel's US tour. Bureaucratic hoop-jumping beyond the band's control is unfortunately to blame, and the fans will have to suffer for it. Again, we're so very sorry to disappoint you all with this news and hopefully fans can bear with the band a while longer before the US tour (which they very much want to happen) can occur without any snags."Seefeel, who were about to play their first-ever US shows, unfortunately had to cancel their tour which was about to hit NYC on June 29 at Brooklyn Bowl and June 30 at Le Poisson Rouge. Refunds are available at point of purchase.
actual crowd going to Central Park Thursday night (photo via Sasarella)
Stormy weather forced the cancellation of a concert by the Black Eyed Peas that was to take place on the Central Park Great Lawn on Thursday night for an expected audience of 60,000.
The concert's pre-show was canceled, and the main show's starting time was delayed twice due to the storms moving across the city, stranding thousands of fans on the streets of the Upper West Side. The gates were finally opened at 7:45 p.m., but about half an hour later, as lightning continued to streak across the sky and a light rain spattered the lawn, the concert was shut down.
Bad news for fans of Jonny, the duo of Norman Blake and Euros Childs. The band's tour with Apex Manor, which was to roll into NYC on Thursday (6/9) at Le Poisson Rouge, despite making it to Toronto over the weekend, has been canceled:
"Due to unforeseen circumstances, Norman Blake and Euros Childs aka Jonny have to cancel their US tour. We apologize for the inconvenience and refunds are available at point of purchase. Apex Manor will also be canceling their appearances. Hopefully, Jonny will reschedule their tour later this year.Jonny's lovely debut album is out now on Merge. Get back here soon, guys." -Bill
DOWNLOAD: Zomby - "Things Fall Apart" (Feat. Panda Bear) (MP3)
UK producer Zomby is releasing his first album for 4AD, Dedication, on July 11 in the UK and July 12 in the US. Panda Bear provides guest lead vocals on the track "Things Fall Apart," which you can download above. Dedication is/was currently streaming in full on hhv (it doesn't seem to be working at the moment). Check out the full album tracklist below.
July 12 is the same day Animal Collective play Prospect Park in Brooklyn, two days before Zomby's TBA New York show (7/14) which is listed on his myspace. Stay tuned for more details, and hopefully those details aren't a cancellation this time.
Remember when Zomby was supposed to open Animal Collective's Prospect Park show in 2009. It would be cool if he makes up for it by opening at the same venue in 2011. Don't hold your breath though. Zomby also recently cancelled his appearance at the Animal Collective curated-ATP last month. According to 32 RPM...
"Zomby has cancelled and lots of people eager to suck up his revivalist bullshit rave music were forced to mull around wearing their best faces of disappointment. I didn't mind. Zomby is a REDACTED and if it means he's ten fans down after blowing the festival out then that goes to shape a better tomorrow. For one he confused Steve Moore completists and for two the world needs a 90s rave music revival like it needs an airborn Aids strain.Harsh. Zomby cancelled Sonar in 2010 too. All currently scheduled dates and the album info below...
Now much as I was left non-plussed by them I have to say 'good one' to The Frogs for filling the gap and playing a second show."
John Grant @ Swan Dive (more by Bill Pearis)
We actually had a post ready to go about how John Grant was coming back to the US to play some more shows including June 8th & 9th at Joe's Pub with his Bella Union labelmates Alessi's Ark and Heidi Spencer, but then John posted this message to Facebook...
"Um, just two minutes ago, at quarter to midnight I'm being told that my tour of the U.S. has been cancelled and I am in shock. But it's true, this is not a joke. Apparently there were no pre-sales to speak of and so they've decided to make this decision the night before I leave. Don't ask me any questions right now, I'm pissed off and need to find out more about wtf is going on."damn, that sucks.
Josh T. Pearson @ Swan Dive (more by Amanda Hatfield)
John Grant was at SXSW in March where he was backed by Midlake at a BV party at Swan Dive. Fellow singer-songwriter also known for being in a Bella Union-signed band who returned from a long hiatus in 2010 Josh T. Pearson played a BV party at the same venue the same week, and was, and still is, scheduled to play Joe's Pub one day after John was supposed to. Tickets are still on sale.
The NYC show is Josh's only US date. Check out a just-released Mute Session video of Josh playing "Sorry With A Song", below...
Quintron and Miss Pussycat @ DbA in 2010 (more by Leia Jospe)
"Due to situations beyond their control involving a family emergency at home, Quintron and Miss Pussycat have been forced to cancel their upcoming North American tour dates, beginning with their May 23rd show in Savannah, GA (the band will be performing the first two shows scheduled in Birmingham and Atlanta).The cancelled dates include the 5/28 show at 285 Kent in Brooklyn, and their performance the next day at BOMB Fest. They are still scheduled to appear on Bruise Cruise 2012 though.
Quintron and Miss Pussycat would like to thank everyone who has supported their new album, "Sucre Du Sauvage," especially the individuals at Goner Records, and hope to be able to reschedule all dates as soon as possible.
We thank you for your patience and understanding, and hope to be able to provide more information shortly."
All cancelled dates are listed below...
From Elvis Costello:
I'm very sorry to have to postpone our date at the Wellmont Theatre but I would rather disappoint our friends and tickets-holders than cheat them with an inferior show. Having unfortunately contracted bronchitis, the success of the Chicago Theatre show on the 15th of May was in large part thanks to the wonderful crowd and our many willing and good-humoured participants in the Spectacular Spinning Songbook. They inspired 2 and 1/2 hour performance well beyond its occasionally audible vocal limitations. Against the express advice of a doctor but mindful that people had traveled from as far as Cleveland and Lexington for the show in Cincinnati, our show there went ahead on the 16th of May. We enjoyed an incredible welcome of Taft Theatre crowd, my voice rallied for another show or more than two hours but this was at a cost. To proceed further without adequate recovery would risk cancellation of the remaining dates of "The Revolver Tour." We will make every effort to re-schedule the Wellmont Theatre date when "The Revolver" tour rolls out again in not too distant future. Once again, I send my regrets and apologies for any disappointment and inconvenience.The Wellmont show was supposed to happen tonight (5/18). No new NJ date yet. Elvis is scheduled to play three shows at Becaon Theater in NYC later this month. More dates HERE.
Yours through music. Elvis Costello a.k.a. Napoleon Dynamate - M.C. of The Spectacular Spinning Songbook.
oh the humanity...
Just noticed this note posted today on the homepage of the upcoming Festival For Humanity:
May 12th, 2011Most people reading this are probably wondering what the Festival For Humanity is (and that's probably part of their problem), but the Vernon, NJ festival's lineup included The New Porngraphers, and, well (another part of their problem...), and Cracker... Third Eye Blind... Sister Hazel... the Misfits... Soul Asylum... Good Charlotte... John Popper... Ok, it was for charity, so that sucks.
To Those Involved With The Festival For Humanity,
It is with sadness that we inform you that the Festival for Humanity has been cancelled.
The founder of the festival, Anders Thueson has been doing everything in his power to secure financing and as of this late hour, the Festival For Humanity will not take place.
