If You Had Tickets To The Walkmen’s Cancelled October 6th Show, They Would Like To Give You Meatballs
Back in early October, The Walkmen had a show scheduled at the Electric Factory that got cancelled. That show has now been rescheduled (well, really just part of another tour) at Union Transfer on January 11th, and we really hope you didn’t throw your tickets away.
According to Pitchfork, in order to make the cancelled show up to fans, The Walkmen “will prepare a dinner of spaghetti, meatballs, and ‘cheap canned beer’ for fans with ticket stubs for the cancelled show.” The spaghetti dinner (perhaps inspired by the venue’s former occupant) will go down immediately before the show, as the band sound-checks and runs through “half-assed” cover songs (and they know how to cover a tune). In addition, frontman Hamilton Leithauser said that potential serves for the spaghetti dinner could include Fleet Foxes, Kurt Vile, the War on Drugs, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, Mazarin, and Blood Feathers, although he is quick to point out that they have not been asked about this yet and there is a good chance they will not show up.
And if you tossed your stub in the trash, Leithauser says you can just write in (we assume on their Facebook page) and plead your case. “It’s not THAT sweet a deal,” he said in the Facebook post announcing the event, “so the restrictions are sort of lax. Casual attire.”
