Taake’s Kansas City show canceled after criticism from Talib Kweli

Kansas City club The Riot Room has canceled black metal band Taake's show there, which was to have happened March 31. Talib Kweli recently canceled his show at the venue, due to its “[refusal] to apologize" for booking Taake -- a band who have been accused of Nazism due to frontman Hoest performing with a swastika painted on his chest in 2007. Other shows on the tour also seem like they're not happening as well.

”So, once and for all, Taake is not a racist band. Never has been, never will be. Still claiming so is as ridiculous and unfounded as are the attempts at sabotaging our highly anticipated shows,” said Hoest.
