AAAAAAAAAAAAARRRGGGHHHHH!!!

>**UPDATE!** Show is rescheduled for this Thursday @ 9, apparently no opening act. That's all well and good, but I still want that massage!


SLEATER-KINNEY SHOW
CANCELLED!!!!

WORLDWIDE EXCLUSIVE!!!! MUST CREDIT BICAMERAL MIND AND ANY RANDOM PERSON BITCHING ABOUT THIS!!!

9:40 pm, I'm standing in the crowd just before S-K are about to take the stage in DC and one of the club workers announces the place is being shut down due to an overheated transformer! I CAN'T FUCKIN' BELIEVE IT!!! Everyone just filed out in shock. CAN'T YOU AT LEAST RIOT, YOU CORNY INDIE FUCKS??!?

sorry.

At least I didn't have to travel a great distance like some people there. Will the show be rescheduled? The guy on stage said so, but who knows. If they do, then I guess that might make the DC show the final Sleater-Kinney show? We'll see. GODDAMNIT, 930 CLUB YOU'D BETTER MAKE IT UP TO ME!!! I want a free erotic massage from any performer on your stage for life. Let's see, who do you have coming up in the next few weeks: The Pretenders? No. Gary Numan? Noooo. Jurassic 5? Dear God, no! Well, we'll work something out later. In the meantime, shock, despair, etc.

9:30 club is going downhill fast. if sleater-kinney had been slated to play that show in philly and the transformers had discombobulated or whatever, illadelphians would have made a new transformer mechanism out of perfomance goer body parts and chewing gum... or they would have beat someone (just anyone really) into insensibility and demanded to see sleater-kinney acoustic.

and that, my friend, is why i'm getting out of here asap.

A friend had one ticket left and it could have been mine. But I decided not to go... and i'm glad i didn't make the trek.

The second weirdest cancellation of my life was when me and some others were driving down to see Radiohead a few years ago and halfway there we learned the stage had "sunk" due to recent flooding. I don't think those goofy bastards ever even made up the date!
