Categories: Canceled Shows

Vietnamese rapper Suboi could not get a visa to perform in S.F. this weekend.
A bevy of cancellation updates to bring you regarding the weekend's musical options: Tonight's Perfect Pussy show at the Rickshaw Stop has transformed considerably, after the headliners -- fearsome punk rockers from Syracuse -- canceled due to an emergency medical sitch. We hope everyone and their pussies are okay! And while it's a bummer that one of punk's buzziest bands won't be demolishing your ears tonight, there is still a show at Rickshaw, and now it's free. The bill includes Wild Moth, Happy Diving, and Pure Bliss -- all local outfits deserving of your Friday night attention.

Unfortunately, there are more changes to declare. Maybe you saw our conversation with Vietnamese rapper Suboi, a 24-year-old rhyme spitta hailing from a country that isn't totally into rhymes or spitting, especially about certain topics. Well, Suboi was set to play at 111 Minna tomorrow for CAAMfest's Here Comes Treble event. And now, she's not.

The new sticker design from SubliminalSF
Last week, Morrissey canceled the remaining dates of his current U.S. tour, including two San Francisco shows at the Warfield and Regency Ballrom, due to medical issues including bleeding ulcer, Barrett's esophagus, and double pneumonia.

These are the fifth and sixth consecutive Bay Area shows Morrissey has canceled in the last three years, having not played the region since December 2009. Fans, judging by the comment sections on our posts, are either utterly hopeless, furious, or both.

Dear Morrissey, Will You Ever Actually Make it to San Francisco?

Dear Morrissey,

If a double-decker bus crashed into us right now, we almost would be happy to die by your side -- not because we think vehicular slaughter is "such a heavenly way to die," but rather because the shock of seeing your face in this fair city of ours would be enough to bring on sudden death regardless. At the rate things are going, we just can't help but feel that the stages of San Francisco will never be graced with your miserable, warbling presence ever again. And honestly we kind of miss your sad little hound-dog face, dude. There's just something so darn comforting about it.
