Devendra Banhart Breaks Leg Skateboarding Before Tempe Show, Cancels Tour
"I love skateboarding...what can I say?"
The anticipation for freak-folker Devendra Banhart's show at The Clubhouse was palpable Saturday night -- and it all came to a crashing stop thanks to Banhart's affinity for skateboarding.
Phoenix music fans haven't been this crushed since Surfer Blood flipped everyone the bird by moving their show from the Trunk Space in Phoenix to Club Congress in Tucson (while that sucks, any sane band would rather play Club Congress).
Banhart's cancellation was a topic of much debate with our friends over at Electric Mustache.The Mustachios wonder if Banhart sold out The Clubhouse. I have it on good authority that the show was, indeed, sold out and that tickets were going for upwards of $200 on eBay.
