Marooned Musicians Cancel Shows
When severe weather strikes, nobody thinks about the effect on indie rock bands. Interpol was forced to cancel two Canadian shows when their tour bus got stuck in the snow for two full days, during which they live-tweeted their ordeal in the frigid circle of hell once known as upstate New York. After more than 50 hours living on ramen, vodka and Starbursts — valiantly refraining from devouring their support band, Donner Party-style — they made it to a Buffalo hotel. Their next album may have a distinctly chilly, claustrophobic sound.
