White Heat dump Shrag

Shrag had been due to launch their single at Madame JoJos on June 5th. Had been. Not any more:

We're depressed to have to tell anyone that's interested that our single launch show on Tuesday 5th June at Madam JoJo's, which we were playing along with Evans the Death and Ace Bushy Striptease, has been cancelled, because the 'promoter' (White Heat) decided it was best to pull our show - with less than three weeks to go - for a bigger band who were suddenly available and who will probably make them more money. We'll hopefully be scheduling a new show in a month or so, watch this space.
The bigger band, in case you're wondering, is Chromatics.

You can understand why a promoter might grab the chance to take a slightly larger act in these difficult days, but it still feels like quite bad form.
