U.S. Immigration is so Uptight

Categories: Music


Despite Mike Rowell's glowing plug for Japanese band Up-Tight in our Hear This picks ("[The band's] disc is a transcendent listen that ranges from ethereal melancholy to gargantuan guitar-freakout squalls, often within the same song; it sounds a bit like Tokyo noise maven Keiji Haino jamming with early Pink Floyd in a reverberating mine shaft") you are stuck listening to the group on record only. Immigration won't let them in the country, according to the band's website. Lame! The psychedelic wonders in Mammatus have cancelled as well -- although not due to the Feds. (The original show was for Tuesday, Nov. 20 at Cafe du Nord.) -- Jennifer Maerz
