Morrissey postpones four tour stops, including Columbus

According to Pitchfork, Morrissey has postponed four of his U.S. tour dates to attend to his mother, who was hospitalized in the UK. Wednesday’s stop at the LC in Columbus is one of those four. Apparently ticket holders should hold on to tickets and await word on rescheduled dates.

Fortunately, you have many other options for Columbus shows on Wednesday night, including Divine Fits/Jon Spencer Blues Explosion at the Newport, Tinariwen at Wexner Center, Richard Buckner at Rumba and others.

Morrissey tour dates:
10-23 Pittsburgh, PA – Heinz Hall
10-24 Columbus, OH – LC Indoor Pavilion
10-26 Flint, MI – James H Whiting Auditorium
10-27 Chicago, IL – The Chicago Theater

Tonight in Columbus: Morrissey Sundays At Little Palace

Donewaiting has united with Sweatin’s Scotty Niemet and Milk Bar‘s Kareem Jackson to present Morrissey Sundays at Little Palace.

Morrissey Sundays starts at 7 and ends at 12. Usually people get there early. It is free.

I feel a little odd listing drinks specials for such an handsome event but there are 6 dollar import pitchers, and 4 dollar Bloody Mary’s.

Little Palace
240 South Fourth Street

Classic spun by Scott Neimet.
The Smiths will also be played.

Wednesday: The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir @ Rumba

Download: “Stop!”

Certainly joyful and colorful in the press photo, The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir’s sound comes from a darker place. The band is built around the songwriting of former drug dealer Elia whose lyrics deal with issues of drug abuse, mental illness and sexual identity. It’s no wonder, then, that Elia comes off as a bit as the bastard child of Morrissey and Javis Cocker (Pulp) – go ahead, picture THAT consummation in your dirty, dirty mind!

While comparisons to Arcade Fire, The Decemberists, and Mekons make sense, to me, SYGC comes off as the drinking-and-smoking, younger troublemaking cousin of the limp-wristed Belle & Sebastian.

Benco Presents The Scotland Yard Gospel Choir and Maza Blaska at Rumba Cafe. Cover charge is $5 and something tells me you can probably head over after Benco’s other show (Brendan Benson/The Posies) and still see a full set by SYGC.
