Um, So Morrissey Might Actually Perform in San Francisco Tomorrow [UPDATE: Show Postponed]

"Yeah, I'm thinkin' about it..."

Update: 3/9/13: Morrissey has postponed tonight's show due to illness. (Seriously.) The show will now be May 1.

Original post: Your morning headlines: Forty-seven airplanes landed safely at San Francisco International yesterday. Muni ushered people around the city on time, with zero service interruptions. No iPhones were stolen in the Tenderloin. And, in entertainment news, former Smiths singer Morrissey is still scheduled to play a sold-out show tomorrow, Saturday, March, 9, at the Regency Ballroom. As of press time, no changes, cancelations, postponements, or vegan-diet-based demands have been made. (As far as we know.)

No really: We don't want to jinx this, but so far it seems Morrissey might actually play a scheduled date tomorrow at the Regency Ballroom -- which would be his first non-canceled Bay Area show in something like four years. Just weeks ago, he bailed on a show at Davies Symphony Hall due to an issue with Barrett's esophagus and a bleeding ulcer -- only to announce his recovery the morning after. That was the latest in an unbroken string of canceled Bay Area dates, leading many to suspect that Mr. Moz has some kind of grudge against Northern California fans. (He did, by the way, play a March 1 date at Staples Center in L.A.)

Anyway, at this point, Morrissey playing a show in San Francisco is far more noteworthy than Morrissey canceling. He's set to play again at the Warfield on April 30. But let's get through this weekend before we start dreaming that that might actually happen.

  • 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.'"
