This Just In: Cat Power Cancels
Pitchfork reported Friday that Cat Power, the New York-based singer-songwriter Chan Marshall, has been ordered by her doctor to refrain from performing indefinitely. Marshall, whose harrowing, emotionally stark songs were often overshadowed by her crippling stage fright and a tendency to come apart onstage, got sober a few years ago and has since released the critically adored, soul-tinged albums The Greatest and this year’s Jukebox.
Marshall’s shows tomorrow in Dallas and Wednesday in Austin were also canceled. The dates will be made up later this year, a representative from her label, Matador Records, told Pitchfork. - Chris Gray
