Tomorrow’s Pela Show Canceled

posted by on March 3 at 11:28 AM

Kwab Copeland just sent out the e-mail with the news—tomorrow’s Pela show at the High Dive has been canceled, along with the rest of the band’s tour, due to injury. From the band’s website:

During last night’s show at Schuba’s in Chicago Billy fell off the stage, landing on a broken pint glass. This happened during the triumphant finale of the set; the stage was crowded with people dancing and singing to ‘Cavalry’, while a strobe light turned their vision into a cut screen movie. His left hand has a gash on the palm, and a deep slice in his pinky finger which also cut tendons.

We promise to make up each and every show as soon as possible and apologize to everyone who purchased tickets. Arrangements are being made with all of the clubs on how best to handle the situation. We will have more information soon.

Webmaster note: you can send your best wishes to billy@pelamusic.com and I’ll forward them to him.

Anyone who bought tickets through Brown Paper Bag has already been offered a refund.

Liam Finn will be playing with a special guest opener, it’ll cost $8 at the door.

@2 You're right! I'm wrong. I knew that but typed bag anyway because... I don't have a good reason.

I fixed it. Thanks.
