Tricky Cancels Treasure Island Appearance; Danny Brown To Replace Him
Tricky has postponed a number of U.S. tour dates due to visa issues, including his set at Treasure Island Music Festival this weekend. So it's sigh, sigh, for the Massive Attack/English rap maven, but this post is not all bad news. Replacing him on the TI bill is none other than Detroit madman and notorious performer Danny Brown, who is riding high on -- well, on marijuana, because he's Danny Brown and he smokes marijuana a lot -- but also on the nice things certain people have said about an album he released last week.
(Getting visas to perform in the U.S., this seems like a good time to point out, is a pain. Sorry, Tricky. He sounds terribly frustrated by the process.)
Danny Brown takes Treasure Island at 2:45 p.m. Sunday on the Bridge Stage. Tickets for the festival are still available in single-day and two-day flavors. Might wanna roll your blunts in advance, though -- it gets windy out there.
