Korean band Say Sue Me are among the latest to cancel their upcoming tour. "A lot has been said recently about the difficulties of touring in these current times, and now we have to add to it," the band write. "We were really excited and looking forward to finally meet you again. But in working and re-working multiple scenarios, every way we looked at it, we just could not make a tour budget work enough that it would not overwhelm us with financial hardship. We postponed these dates once already due to ongoing uncertainties related to the pandemic, and also faced some show cancellations and other postponements, all of which put a strain on us financially. Then, van, gas, hotels, freight, everything has increased in cost significantly. Meanwhile our show income will remain the same or dropped after being unable to reschedule some shows. Even in a best-case scenario where everything goes the best it could, and if we sold as much merch as we can afford to make, ship and carry with us, it would not be enough to make this tour financially sustainable. We are not a fussy or demanding band. We know how to be frugal. Cancelling the tour and losing out on the costs for our visas and flights is, sadly, the less damaging option to us financially, mentally and physically."


Drag cabaret greats Kiki & Herb, aka Justin Vivian Bond and Kenny Mellman, are back, reuniting for a short holiday tour; "We’re trotting out the old show ponies!" they say. December dates include Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.

NYC post-punk icons Bush Tetras just played Brooklyn over the weekend with Yard Act and Gustaf, and they've just announced a new hometown show at TV Eye on December 10 with Michael Imperioli's band ZOPA. The band, which now includes Steve Shelley on drums, is getting ready to record a new album, so they may have some new songs in addition to the classics.
