It appears witz.org’s earlier report on The Cure’s Curiosa Festival getting cancelled are, thankfully, very incorrect. Ticket sales have picked up – turns out goths like to wait until the very last minute before committing. Guess being morose and suicidal doesn’t help one’s long-term planning skills.
The Cure’s Curiosa Festival hits NYC on July 31, with opening acts Interpol, the Rapture, and Mogwai. Unfortunately, the venue is the horrid dirtfarm that is known as Randall’s Island, which is also no fun to get to (Take the footbridge on East 103rd Street in Manhattan. Or, by car or bus, take the Triborough Bridge from either East Harlem or Astoria, Queens).
In other news, Perry Farrell’s Lollapalooza is still cancelled.
