Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew was set to begin a US tour in Portland tonight (9/23). That tour was supposed to visit Brooklyn on 9/26 for a show with Eleanor Friedberger, but we just realized that all of these dates have been cancelled with the following message from Kevin:

I am sorry to have to cancel these shows....

There is nothing i like more than playing for people and feeling connected with the ceiling of peoples party smiles....

but sometimes the state of before can shut down the anticipation of after.

What I mean is....

life has happened and i cannot make these dates work anymore.

Please, for all those who are disappointed....

buy a strobe light and blare DARLINGS in your bedroom.

love and love
