Cat Power, Jenny Lewis’ main rival for the fantasy attentions of besotted indie boys, injured her vocal cords last week and has canceled several upcoming shows on her current tour, including Tuesday’s performance at Warehouse Live.
Pitchfork reported Friday that Cat Power, the New York-based singer-songwriter Chan Marshall, has been ordered by her doctor to refrain from performing indefinitely. Marshall, whose harrowing, emotionally stark songs were often overshadowed by her crippling stage fright and a tendency to come apart onstage, got sober a few years ago and has since released the critically adored, soul-tinged albums The Greatest and this year’s Jukebox.

Marshall’s shows tomorrow in Dallas and Wednesday in Austin were also canceled. The dates will be made up later this year, a representative from her label, Matador Records, told Pitchfork. - Chris Gray
