    The Smith Street Band have canceled an upcoming show after a crowd member was groped at a recent show:

    We’re sorry but we’re gonna be cancelling today’s show in Castlemaine. At the moment I feel like I never want to play a show again. We played an under 18 show yesterday that felt lovely and wholesome and special. Then after I found out someone groped someone in the crowd and was apprehended and arrested. Out of respect to the situation, I won’t go into that further. But I’ve been playing shows for about ten years now. Anyone who’s seen me perform a few times over that journey knows how seriously I take this and how much it fucking kills me.

    Will has always come across as a great guy. I understand how hard it would be to see your passion turned into the cesspit that this music scene has become.

    Based on their post, I think it will do him good to take a break. I hope the victim is doing well and it sickens me how common it is at shows.

    This is somehow Morrissey’s fault.
    Analog Drummer and Hazelnutsack like this.
