Morrissey’s PR sent us an email informing us the singer’s show in Oakland tonight has been cancelled. Drummer Matt Walker suffered an eye injury which prevents him from playing tonight, though none of the other tour dates are in jeopardy.

We’ll update when we have information on how they’ll offer refunds.

The remainder of Morrissey’s 2011 tour dates go like this (mostly south of the border):

12/5 Monterrey (Mexico) – Arena
12/7 Mexico City – Plaza Condesa
12/8 Mexico City – Plaza Condesa

Jake Shimabukuro will tour the United States in 2011 and 2012.

Jake Shimabukuro will tour the United States in 2011/2012, and with 15 dates in California we’d make jokes about him getting his sun in, but the man’s from Hawaii so we think he’s got us beat.

For the curious, Jake’s ukelele talents went viral when his cover of The Beatles’ “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” went viral on YouTube. Watch it here:

Kanye West at Victoria Secret Fashion Show 2011

Kanye West performed “Stronger” at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 2011 last night, four years after he backed out of the 2007 show in dealing with the loss of his mother.

The sentiment is nice, but the presentation is woefully awkward. Kanye: “I love my dead mother so much, I’m gonna rap to these supermodels.”

The performance may have come four years late, but it was plenty dope. Note that even Kanye can’t peel his eyes away around 1:50. Watch it below:

Hurricane Katrina, Taylor Swift at the VMAs, and now Victoria’s Secret Models – Ye’s upstaged them all. He has such a knack for soapboxing at the wrong moment – would his mother approve?

Well, seems like I am not the only one who dislikes the Insane Clown Posse (ICP) and their fans, or Juggalos. Seems the FBI has recently classified Juggalos as a “loosely-organised hybrid gang,” citing the group’s violence, criminal activity and “gang-like behaviour”. According to the FBI’s 2011 National Gang Threat Assessment report, Juggalos are described the following way:

“Open source reporting suggests that a small number of Juggalos are forming more organised subsets and engaging in more gang-like criminal activity…. Transient, criminal Juggalo groups pose a threat to communities due to the potential for violence, drug use/sales, and their general destructive and violent nature.”

Fans of the Insane Clown Posse have called themselves Juggalos for more than two decades, developing a reputation for face-paint and Faygo soda. They name themselves after the ICP song, “The Juggla,” and the Detroit-based rappers organize the annual Gathering of the Juggalos, which attracts more than 20,000 fans. I wonder how many FBI agents will be at the next Gathering.
