The last time Brian Jonestown Massacre was scheduled to play St. Louis, in summer 2005, it was canceled at the last minute -- for the following reason, according to head honcho Anton Newcombe, when asked about the non-show:
"Oh, yeah," he says. "Well, we've been touring a lot, man. And my management company's a little worried, man, 'cause I'm a little loose in the caboose. You know, it's all a little scary, 'cause we're getting Nirvana-popular."
Five years later, the band's going to finally (allegedly) make its return, to Off Broadway on June 11. Tickets are on sale this weekend.
