NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is what I found on the Calgary Folk Festival website today:
---
Neko Case
(USA)
Alt-Country, Rock, Roots, Singer-Songwriter
http://www.nekocase.com/
Cancelled due to a scheduling conflict
---
Neko, why do you hate us so? Not touring with the New Pornographers was understandable, not coming to Calgary on your North American tour was ... a little hurtful, but many musicians skip Calgary.
But we were so happy when you were booked for the Folk Festival this summer. We went out and bought a four-day pass for everybody in the family. And those aren't cheap. But it would have been so worth it.
I am utterly bummed out about this.
I hope to hell Matt Good stays healthy.

Aaaaw I am sorry to hear that Barbara B. I think you still have some fav, bands on that list though. If it makes you feel better I don't think Neko case is coming to Montreal either...

Stephanie said...

I'm thinking of comming up to Calgary on Sunday for the Folk Festival. Hehe Matt Good & Ani DiFranco!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

I know, Maureen. It's starting to get hard not to take this personally. I think she hates us.

I do still have some favs on the agenda, Barbara W. Matt Good will always be my home-boy, and I'm keen to see Feist, BSS, Ani DiFranco, etc. Still, last year there were more must-sees...

You should, Stephanie! We'll be there on Sunday fo-sho. I'd love to be able to say hi to you.

awwwww, I'm bummed and indignant FOR you. and no, she loves you - remember she said Calgary was the Texas of Canada ? We got the feeling she liked us, really liked us, when she was in Dallas. So yeah, Texas is the Calgary of the USA, remember? Surely we'll find out she's doing something massive at that time that couldn't be gotten out of.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Thanks for cheering me up, Phlegmfatale. Neko better be planning to have a baby or something that day, cause that would be fairly massive. As well as hard to get out of.

Stampede town and the Capital having something in common. We often get overlooked for the good shows.

Every major artist in the world goes to Toronto, skips Ottawa, straight to Montreal without even giving us Ottawans the common courtesy of a reach around.

Will said...

No!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! is right. I sympathize to the fullest. I don't usually pray, but I will pray for Matt Good's health. I feel like I have been away from the blogosphere for a long time and have some catch-up reading to do. Putting the finishing touches on your mix.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Too true, Jetson - both cities are despised by foreign musicians and the rest of Canada alike. Radiohead, the Streets, Belle and Sebastian, Neko Case etc etc... argh!!!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Thanks for the sympathy, Will, and I'm sure Matt Good will be gratified that you are concerned for his health, if only to stop me whining about cancelled shows.
It's true though - you're away for the blogosphere for a few days and you miss so much! It's sick, I tell you.
I've finished your mix and am working on the liner notes now, because I'm all about the liner notes.

Will said...

Liner notes are awesome. I am excited.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Will, I'm excited to find out what you think of the music (and the liner notes).
