Bad news for fans of the sound of collapsing new buildings: West Berlin experimental noise stalwart Einstürzende Neubauten (which is German for "collapsing new buildings") has had to cancel its 30th anniversary tour of the U.S., including appearances at the Fillmore on Friday and Slim's on Saturday. The extremely lame reason? The band members' visa approvals didn't come back from U.S. Homeland Security in time.

"The band members are tremendously disappointed by this turn of events and wish to thank all those fans who purchased tickets for these performances for their support," says the bad news-bearing press release. "The band would have loved to do the tour and meet their overseas fans. Because this tour was a time-sensitive production, it will not be rescheduled. Ticketholders can obtain refunds from their point of purchase."

Guess you weirdo industrial art-noise fans will have to find something else to do this weekend.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
