The hotly anticipated, sold out Youth Lagoon show tomorrow night at the Doug Fir has been cancelled. Unfortunately, the band has been stranded in its hometown of Boise since this crappy weather began, which also resulted in the cancellation of its Seattle and Vancouver dates. The roads over the Cascades have been generally impassable, and an attempt to fly the band to the shows has resulted in cancelled flights and no small amount of frustration.
Leave it to the Doug Fir to provide the silver lining, as they are hastily putting together a replacement show for tomorrow night that won't feature Youth Lagoon but promises to be a worthwhile bill. Details to come*. The Doug Fir also wants ticket holders to know: "All credit card purchases will be electronically refunded, and all cash purchases will be refunded at point of purchase."
Youth Lagoon hopes to make up the dates at some point in the future; in the meantime, they will open for Death Cab for Cutie at the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall on May 11.
*UPDATE: Tomorrow night's show will feature Radiation City, Wild Ones, Pure Bathing Culture, and Pegasus Dream. Radiation City and Pure Bathing Culture were already on the bill, Wild Ones and Pegasus Dream are new additions. Tickets are $5.
