Northampton, MA @ Pearl Street - No Living Colour tonight

Unfortunately the logistics DID NOT WORK for the Northhampton show. I apologize to you & to ALL the area fans. LC will be in D.C.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yo I'd like to thank everyone from the AP crew & beyonds who showed up for the Living Colour NY Highline show, which SOLD OUT. That's a greet feeling to have in your home town! I'm sad that we aren't doing the Northhampton Saul Williams show. bad planning & communication made the logistics of performing unworkable-we will be back in the area later on in The Chair In The Doorway touring cycle. LC will be w Saul in DC however, & we hope to see/feel AP in Full Effect tomorrow (Sunday) Peace!
