To support the August 20 release of 10th studio album I Hate Music, Superchunk will hit the road! The band will perform at the El Rey Theatre on Wednesday, Sept. 4, but Jason Narducy will fill in for bass player Laura Ballance. Per Laura's letter on the Superchunk website, she is unable to perform with the band due to the hearing condition hyperacusis.
Tickets to see the rest of Superchunk live in concert at the El Rey Theatre will go on sale today, May 17, at 10:00 a.m. via Ticketmaster for $24.00 each plus service fees. Click below to see Mac McCaughan, Jon Wurster, and Jim Wilbur in Los Angeles this fall!
Meat-lovers who are attending next month's Morrissey show at the Staples Center will have to adjust their diet if they're planning to eat at the venue. For the first time ever, all of the vendors at the Staples Center will be 100% vegetarian when longtime animal activist Morrissey performs on Friday, March 1. Recovering from a bleeding ulcer and Barrett's esophagus, Morrissey has canceled several dates on this tour, but he plans to be fully recovered for the Los Angeles show. You can read his entertaining apology on True To You.
Due to injury, The Psychedelic Furs has canceled all of their upcoming December and January tour dates, which includes a New Year's Eve show at the House of Blues Anaheim.

The official statement from the The Psychedelic Furs Facebook page:

We hope to reschedule in the future, but no dates have been announced yet. You may get your tickets refunded at the point of purchase. We wish you the best this holiday season....and apologize for the change in plans.
It's time to wrap up the weekend, Scenestar readers. It's still rainy, but you can wrap up the weekend with our Show of the Night, Slash at the Wiltern! This show was postponed due to vocalist Myles Kennedy getting sick, but now Slash is back with this rescheduled date at the Wiltern tonight.
If you have tickets to see Morrissey at the Staples Center, you can either wait for the Los Angeles tour date to be rescheduled or you can get a refund via Ticketmaster or your point of purchase. We wish Morrissey and his family well during this time, and we'll keep you posted on the new Los Angeles date once we get it, Scenestar readers.
