If you haven't started building your Hurricane Irene Victim spreadsheet, now is a great time to start. And at the top of that list you can place the 2011 Afro-Punk Festival. Because Irene merked that shit.
The free Festival was set to go down Saturday and Sunday, and would feature performances from Janelle Monáe, Das Racist, Santigold, Cee Lo, Jay Electronica and more. But now it's no more.
In other news, Irene also merked the two Dave Matthews Band shows scheduled for this weekend.
There is a flip side to every coin.
