Some unfortunate news: former Sleater-Kinney drummer Janet Weiss has been in a car accident and has now had to cancel the upcoming tour with her bands Quasi and Slang. She writes, "Hey friends I have some bad news. I was involved in a scary car accident last weekend in which my right leg and left collar bone were broken. My recovery time is about 12 weeks so regretfully, I won't be able to play the Quasi Border Benefit or the upcoming Quasi / Slang west coast tour. As thoroughly bummed as I am about canceling the shows, I'm also incredibly thankful the accident wasn't worse and so happy to be alive! I am lucky my injuries will heal and I'll be back at it in a couple months."

Glad to hear you're expected to heal, Janet, and here's to a speedy recovery!
