Radio 4 switched off at the last moment

As Radio 4 were about to put their equipment out on the stage of the Brooklyn Northsix last night, an act of god intervened: the electricity was cut off.

The venue had been due to close forever after the gig, but the local electricity company jumped the gun:

"We were really looking forward to the show," [said Dave Milone] "People had been talking about it for the past month or so. We must have ran over a bird on the road the last time we went on tour because our karma hasn't been good lately!"

Either that, or the electricity company didn't like their chances of getting paid. We suspect the latter.
