Published Nov 09, 2013While that winter chill may be setting in, we're still doing our best to stay warm and limber. Part of that involves our weekly news roundup, which should do the trick if you're looking to catch up on the week that was.
First off, Kanye West's tour is going from bad to worse. Not only has Yeezus now outright cancelled several of his upcoming dates, including shows in Vancouver and Montreal, but he's postponed a pile more. Adding to all those woes, his questionable tour merch is continuing to draw criticism, even from his openers.
In other news, Fat Mike got in a bunch of trouble with U.S. airport authorities for calling someone a "sissy," Broken Bells set a release date and shared the first single for their new album, the Flaming Lips axed their collaborative Kesha album (for better or worse), and Chief Keef has a pair of new releases on the way, though he'll likely have to finish his stint in rehab first.
Also this week, Dog Day revealed a new record, '90s act Failure reunited, William Orbit hated on that "really awful" Damon Albarn fellow, and Laurie Anderson said goodbye to her late husband Lou Reed in a farewell essay.
Finally, for a good bit of weird, you can buy Ian Curtis's kitchen table on eBay.
