With close to 200 bands and artists set to perform and show at the Fest next weekend, there were bound to be a couple of hiccups—tour cancellations, band deportations, medical emergencies, construction hurdles, and other unforeseeable events that keep things spicy. Make sure you’re up-to-date with what our Fest camp has to say about the changes.
Here are the basics:
- Boxer Rebellion and Canon Blue have cancelled their tours. Friday night at the Crocodile will now be Pickwick, Yuni In Taxco, Viper Creek Club and special guests.
- POGO will be unable to perform at Chop Suey on Thursday. That revised line-up is now That 1 Guy with special guests to be announced soon.
- Steve Cuiffo is Lenny Bruce will NOT be at Can Can on Saturday night. Instead Cuiffo will perform at Showbox at the Market on Friday at 10:30 p.m. (Anyone who is at Richard Cheese beforehand can stick around for free.)
- Friday night’s Genre-Bender will NOT be at the Can Can. It will be at On the Boards instead.
- Friday night’s Factory: NW Hip-Hop Redesigned will be at FRED as scheduled, only it will begin an hour earlier, at 10 p.m.
