Late last week, the Crossfade staff (as well as our siblings over at County Grind) received a truly terrifying press release from Revolution Live reps.
The all-caps subject line screamed, "SLEIGH BELLS [AND DIPLO] CONCERT CHANGES LINE-UP!" And like most bad news, this message was accompanied by another 39 exclamation points.
The story: Diplo had decided to cancel his Fort Lauderdale gig with Sleigh Bells in order to spend Grammys weekend in La La Land.
As County Grind explained on Saturday morning, "Sleigh Bells and black metal trio Liturgy [will] still [be] performing" at [Revolution] with other acts likely to join the lineup later."
Of course, though, we here at Crossfade worried that Mr. Wesley "Diplodocus" Pentz's trip to the West Coast would also cause the cancelation of his Miami show just three days later.
