The reunited Jawbreaker were supposed to do an in-store at Chicago’s Reckless Records on Saturday, the day before their Chicago show, but they unfortunately had to cancel it and will instead do it at 7:30 PM tonight (11/6). They also announced that they’re playing LA zine Ben Is Dead‘s 30th anniversary party in LA on Sunday (11/11) with Skatenigs, Savage Republic, Midget Handjob, Popdefect, Waco, Hepa-Titus, JFA, and more (tickets). Those are their only two announced appearances at the moment, but they’re in the process of rescheduling the NY/NJ shows that were cancelled due to weather earlier this year, so stay tuned for more info on that.
Raunchy rapper CupcakKe is gearing up to release her second album of 2018, Eden, this Friday (11/9), and she’ll support it on the headlining ‘Eden Tour’ in December. (She was supposed to tour with Iggy Azalea recently but that tour was cancelled.) The tour begins in Houston and also hits Portland, Seattle, Oakland, and more before landing in NYC for a show on 12/18 at Le Poisson Rouge. All dates and tickets here.

Legendary horn section Tower of Power — who have played with the Grateful Dead, Elton John, Cat Stevens, Heart, Huey Lewis & The News, and tons of others — have changed their lineup a lot over the years, but they’re still going strong today with founding members Emilio Castillo and Stephen “Doc” Kupka and longtime members Francis Rocco Prestia and David Garibald, among others. They currently have touring plans scheduled from this month through spring 2019, including a just-announced two-night stand at Brooklyn Bowl in NYC in March. Dates here.
