According to emails sent out last night/this morning, the Brand New show in Long Island featuring Glassjaw is not a hoax but has been moved due to scheduling conflicts with an Islanders game. Although Brand New don’t appear to be nearly as big assholes as they would’ve if the show had indeed been a hoax, it’s still ridiculous that they would leave their fans in the dark about it for two days. Most bands would immediately be on the horn trying to solve the problem and let everyone know what was going on but not Brand New; they’re too mystic for that. Brand New, while an impressive band, shows a near comical lack of respect for their fans. Perhaps when their new album, Daisy, drops, their fans will once again forgive all the band’s transgressions over the past three years and fall in love with Lacey and Co. again.
