So that pesky volcanic ash spewing out of Iceland has finally affected Boston nightlife -- Swedish post-punk band the Mary Onettes have canceled their upcoming US tour, which included a Thursday pitstop at Great Scott in Allston. The shows openers, RIBS and Kid Chocolate, will still perform, likely as a reduced cover.
"We are very sorry to announce that we are forced to cancel our US tour due to the volcanic ash that is keeping European air traffic grounded. We feel really sad for all our fans who had already bought tickets and for the promotors and support bands who have been advertising and working for the shows. We would like to thank Ben at Paquin Entertainment and Sioux at Magnum Pr, who have done a truly amazing job.
We hope to return for a new tour later on. Please contact the box office where you bought your tickets for refunds. Big Love/The Mary Onettes"
