Last week Pitchfork published a list of Raekwon tour dates, which, as some worried readers pointed out, features the slightly alarming news that the Wu Tang veteran has a show lined up at San Fransisco’s Mezzanine on May 5—the same day he’s booked to play Spring Fling. In fact, it pretty much looks like he’s CA-chillin’ all week long. BLARRGH:
04-29 Modesto, CA – Fat Cat
04-30 Los Angeles, CA – El Rey Theatre
05-01 Sacramento, CA – Ace of Spades
05-03 Costa Mesa, CA – Detroit Bar
05-05 San Francisco, CA – Messanine
Turns out he is playing the Mezzanine show—and Spring Fling, Rae’s agent confirms. Thanks to the power of air transportation and cross-country time difference (the San Fran show doesn’t start until 9:00 PM—or midnight EST), this is not a physical impossibility. Sweet relief.
