Now Balkan Beat Box has this message on their myspace page....
"Dearest Friends and Fans, We were turned away from the border yesterday and had to stay in Vancouver. We are so very bummed as we have waited a long time and were very excited to play our upcoming shows in Portland, Seattle, Eugene, Los Angeles, San Francisco and at Langerado.We need to get this damn thing started before the Beastie Boys contract Polio.
We are unfortunately forced to cancel these shows. We are basically stuck in a hotel room and can't move anywhere as this cascades day by day and we see all the fans and clubs face what is a small disaster for bbb. To all of you who came we hope to make it up to you soon in a grand old show, BBB style. Party on for us please!
Thanks so much to all the wonderful crew. All the promoters, agents, fans, and managers who worked hard to make these shows happen. Our hearts are with you and the entire BBB

Editor's Note: The New Mastersounds are taking Vampire Weekend's slot on Saturday. That means they'll be playing two sets... one on Friday and one the next day.
