Sorry for those who, based on last week's print edition of The Beat headed out Saturday night to see Owl City at The Basement. Too late to catch it, we received notice the show had sold out.

We were able to learn of the cancellation of Nico Vega's tour, scheduled to stop at The Basement this Thursday, prior to publication. A shame, what with singer Aja Volkman's vocal problems leading to the postponement of the entire tour. Whoo-hoo for social networking. Volkman as a frontwoman is captivating and charismatic. You'll want to keep an eye out for when this date is rescheduled.
