This Just In: Kooks Cancelled; Whigs Still On

Maybe next time, mates...

Brighton, UK buzz band the Kooks has cancelled its sold-out show tonight at Meridian with Athens' Replacements-loving the Whigs - who are still scheduled to play - due to Kooks vocalist/guitarist Luke Pritchard's illness; the band's 4:30 p.m. Cactus Music in-store is a scratch as well. Refunds available at point of purchase.

Bummer. Hey, at least it had nothing to do with the weather this time. - Chris Gray
