    And once again, no Canadian dates. :-(

    I was checking out the Gigology [2001 to present] section of The Fall site and according to it, the last Canadian dates that were scheduled for Toronto and Montreal on July 2 and 4th, 2003 respectively were cancelled because the band would have had to pay $500 (£500?) for a visa to enter Canada and the tour was "operating on a shoestring". Although, speculation at the time blamed it on SARS. [damn SARS!]

    Also, being that my friend and I are attending this year's Coachella festival and will likely be spending the next several days after hanging out in L.A., I'll also just be missing The Fall's L.A. gig on May 7, as I'll be going back home on the 6th. ....When it rains, it pours.
