Hurricane Sandy concert cancellations: The xx, Heartless Bastards, Rusko, more


Any plans you might have to rock out this week will likely have to wait till Wednesday. As it is doing with everything else, Hurricane Sandy is wreaking havoc on the concert calendar. 

Pretty much every show scheduled for Monday and Tuesday in the Philadelphia area has been canceled or postponed. Here's a working list:

-- The xx. The understated British indie trio's first appearance in Philadelphia in support of their underated new sophomore album Coexist tonight has been postponed due to Hurricane Sandy safety concerns. That's them in the picture, and their song "Angel" below. says a new date will be announced soon. 

-- Heartless Bastards. Erika Winnerstrom's rock band's show at Union Transfer on Monday night has been cancelled. Refunds at point of purchase. More info at

-- Rusko. The dubstep DJ-producer's gig at the Starlight Ballroom, a costume ball billed as the Bass Masquerade and also featuring Designer Drugs, Love City DJ's and Dubsef, has been postponed with a new date planned. Info here.

-- Janis Ian. The singer-songwriter's sold-out show at the Coffee Works Roastery and Cafe in Voorhees has been rescheduled for Wednesday. Details here.

-- Bela Fleck's Banjo Summit Tour. Scheduled for the McCarter Theatre Center in Princeton on Monday.  Cancelled.

-- Sean Hayes - Songwriter's Monday show at Johnny Brenda's cancelled. Info here.

Tuesday's show with K'Naan at the World Cafe Live has been cancelled, Joshua Radin and The Fine Frenzy at the Electric Factory is postponed and so is the Pierce the Veil show on Tuesday at the TLA.
