Following on from the terrorist attacks in London this morning, a slew of gigs in London have already been pulled - Sum 41 at the Astoria, Nate James at Shepherds Bush Empire and El Presidente at the Underbelly; Queens of the Stone Age haven't yet made an official announcement about their Somerset House gig but, frankly, with very little moving in the Capital and the likelihood of no tube service at all, we'd be very surprised if they go ahead; indeed, any gig which requires more than a transit vans' worth of equipment and people doing more than a fifteen minute walk to the door is going to suffer from no end of logisitical problems, even if the band and fans are still in the mood.

Drowned In Sound are also watching the situation but, as in most offices across the South of England and beyond today, their minds are elsewhere.

I don't live in England, but I read your blog frequently, and it often makes my day.

I want to say how sorry and horrified I am at the events that have affected your people today.

I don't know what else to say.

To London, with hope

by Chantal Foster

Though some of us may not know you, London, our thoughts are with you so far away. Your families, your friends, may they be safe. And may your wounds, body and soul, heal quickly and with hope for peace.

Albuquerque, New Mexico sends its love.


(Me, too. barbara)
