YT's hometown was hospitable! But the comedy of terrors continues: the touring crew lingers now in a Denver strip mall, waiting for the nice UHAUL mechanic to come fix a dead wheel on the replacement trailer. If the Nerdcore Angels are willing, they will see you for the Portland show Saturday night.
Also, Yates stopped by the Denver show the other night and made this.
Frontalot and company accidentally exploded their van trailer yesterday outside of Minneapolis. Oops! Big apologies to the folks who wanted to see them in Lincoln... turns out it takes a whole day to deal with terrifying car crashes. Front, Lars, and YT are back in the saddle tonight for Denver's show, which will be performed in the traditional hip-hop mode (turntables) while the band bravely inches westward to rejoin the vocalists in Colorado Springs.
Front thanks you all for the well wishes. Oh, and hey: are you a top-flight funk keyboardist who is familiar with the catalog and wouldn't mind hopping on board for the next four weeks? The one who had been touring with Frontalot (a friendly Ukrainian with wild hair called NPR) has decided that he can never set foot in a van again, and fled back to new york late last night, leaving our boys in a bit of a pickle. Send resumes to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The show tonight at Knickerbockers, in Lincoln, NE, has been cancelled!
I just got off the phone with Front a few minutes ago. There was an accident on the way from Minneapolis to Lincoln, and though everyone is fine (thank god!), the unfortunate reality of the situation is that the guys can not do the show tonight. The tour will hopefully be continuing tomorrow, in Denver.
Please join me in wishing Front and the guys good luck in getting everything sorted, and hoping that the rest of the tour can go on without too many troubles.
