DAMMIT: Mogwai Cancel Their American Shows This Week, Including NYC + ATP

Yes, you read that correctly. Scottish post-rock titans Mogwai - who had to postpone their April shows here in NYC to this week due to visa issues - took to Facebook just now to postpone THOSE rescheduled shows due to medical reasons. Those include tomorrow and Tuesday's shows at Webster Hall, their appearance at this weekend's All Tomorrow's Parties I'll Be Your Mirror festival, and shows in Philly, D.C., and Boston.

That is a major amount of suck for the Northeastern seaboard this week, but we wish them a speedy recovery and all the best. They promise to keep us posted on another round of rescheduled dates as soon as possible, and we'll let you know once we have that info.

Meanwhile, enjoy Mogwai's live performance of "San Pedro" from their still-excellently-titled latest album Hardcore Will Never Die But You Will on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon from earlier this summer after the jump. And keep in mind, there's now a pretty big slot at ATP for another UK band in town to possibly fill...
