Only this morning, Crossfade hyped the upcoming Crocodiles concert at downtown cool kid club Grand Central with a hyperactive blurb about the San Diego band's recent single "Kill Joe Arpaio" and the Arizona sheriff's angry, Twitter-driven counterattack.
This evening, though, we received an unfortunate piece of news via email that "due to a serious family emergency Crocodiles have had to cancel the remaining dates of their U.S. tour." Of course, the November 3 show in Miami has also been called off. All tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase.
