Planning to catch Devendra Banhart tomorrow night at the Ogden? Boy are you going to be bummed: Evidently, broseph broke himself over the weekend trying to pull off some gnarly kick flip or ollie or something before his show in Tempe on Saturday and busted a bone in his leg. Two shows, including Denver and Salt Lake, have subsequently been canceled while he mends.
"I am SOOOOOOOOOO sorry to all of you who were planning on seeing us and the Grogs and we will really miss playing for you," Banhart offered on his site this morning. "i wanted to play the shows anyway like in a bed or something but the dr's didn't think that was a great idea."
The show will be rescheduled, AEG reports, but no date has been set yet. Refunds are available at the point of purchase or the Ogden or Bluebird Theater box offices.
