It almost seemed too ridiculous to be true. Turns out it was. Less than a month after announcing his massive OC debut at the Honda Center on Jan. 26, Psy has cancelled the gig. Yeah, we're bummed. We were really looking forward to hearing the South Korean sensation's entire catalog of hits. After all, there's "Gangnam Style" and,

The official cause for the cancellation is "a scheduling conflict caused by unexpected international travel issues." That's believable. It's probably a bitch trying to secure a passport in Fantasy Land.

Geekeasy Will NOT be Held at Downtown Santa Ana

Categories: cancellation
We repeat,  the Geekeasy--the video game-inspired music and art event that Ned Raggett wrote about this week--won't be held in Santa Ana this weekend.

Apparently the organizers couldn't get the proper city permits for the event. According to organizer Chris Lynch, securing a permit to sell alcohol would take 30 days, a permit to hang art would cost $400. WTF. And also, oops.

Yes, this is a picture of Matt Skiba's foot
Did you buy tickets to the recently announced Matt Skiba solo show Dec. 1 at the Constellation Room (inside the Galaxy Theatre) in Santa Ana? (The page is gone now, obviously.) And now are you all excited to see the Alkaline Trio singer/guitarist up close and personal with nothing more than a guitar, his enchanting voice and those sweet, sweet eyes that just make you want to skip through strawberry fields and rose gardens?

If so, I've got bad news: The show has been canceled. In fact, Skiba's entire "west coast" tour (I put this in quotation marks because the tour was really four California shows) is now gone the way of the buffalo thanks to his right foot being broken.

Decemberists' Keyboardist Jenny Conlee Diagnosed With Cancer


Today, some more bad news: According to Verbicide, the Decemberists' keyboardist, Jenny Conlee, was diagnosed with cancer. In a note on their website and to fans on their mailing list, front man Colin Meloy said the band found out a month ago.

The good news is that Jenny caught it early. And while the prognosis is very, very good for a full recovery, tackling the disease will mean some intensive treatment for our Jenny, as well as a lot of important recovery time.

Meloy says that with Conlee's "fervent blessings," they're pushing forward with their scheduled tour dates this spring and summer.
