Gil Scott-Heron Shows Cancelled

Needless to say, the Gil Scott-Heron shows scheduled for Saturday and Sunday night at the Tin Angel are not happening due to a couple of feet of snow. Bummer. Guess I'll have to go to Coachella to see the griot. No word yet on whether the dates will be rescheduled. Refunds are available at point of purchase.

Nonetheless,  Scott-Heron's short but superb comeback album, I'm New Here, comes out on Tuesday. The video below is of the opening song, a remake of Robert Johnson's "Me and the Devil Blues." Beneath that, a BBC interview piece from late last year.
