Bug out: US visa nazis kill yet another great show

Bug feat. Warrior Queen, "Poison Dart"

Just in case you had any doubt, US terror policy is still ruining your summer. The latest victim: highly anticipated UK legend Bug, who was on his way to play a Basstown gig at Great Scott this Saturday. Via the Basstown facebook alert:

"For some time now, Basstown was anticipating the arrival of The Bug (UK) to make the ultimate Boston premiere. With Warrior Queen in tow, the legendary producer, who collaborated with Godflesh for Techno Animal, was going to hit our city halfway through a Northeastern stretch to introduce the arrival of the just-released London Zoo. After much prep and pomp, the show was canceled just this week due to the usual story from most international artists: customs, visas, and generally being denied US entry."

The show will go on, with local talent filling in: Lab Allston's Scotch1 and dubstep selector C-Dubbs of Bassic, plus previously announced residents Baltimoroder, Refusenik, Etan, and Volvox.
