Lifetime at Webster Hall (more by Brian Woodward)

Good news for us, good and bad news for "The Fest". Lifetime has pulled out of their appearance at the Florida Punk Festival, citing Peter Martin's forthcoming baby. Dan Yemin commented:

"We're sad to say that we're going to have to cancel, or as Tony so kindly put it, "bail," for Fest 10. Pete and his wife are expecting their second baby, and at their most recent doctor visit were told that this precocious creature is coming sooner than expected, which means that Pete understandably needs to stay put at home right now. Unfortunately, there are no guitarists (anywhere) good enough to replace him, even temporarily. We did, however, find a replacement band that's at least 75% as good."

In their stead... Kid Dynamite has been added!

I am sure that Pete's newborn will be happy and healthy by the time that Lifetime return to NYC for a show at Europa on January 7th alongside "Special Guests TBA" and Iron Chic. Tickets go on sale tomorrow (10/18) at noon. Man, that TBA gets a ton of shows.
