BAD NEWS: LAKE BVKKAKE PULLS OUT THE METAL SUCKFEST
Yes, it’s true, and yes, it’s a total bummer. Legendary NYC underground pornogrinders have cancelled their appearance for Day One of The Metal Suckfest tomorrow. It would have been their first show since 2001.
The cause, apparently, is this: the band HATES attention. We’ve had readers asking why their albums aren’t online, why they have no website, etc. And that’s the reason. Lake Bukkake might be the only band in history that DOESN’T want to be famous.
And suddenly they were gonna play Suckfest, and they were getting all this attention. And, basically, they freaked. So they were gonna play in front of a crowd about seven times larger than any crowd they’ve ever played for before? With all this press, ranging from Metal Injection to Brooklyn Vegan to Metal Insider to Time Out New York, present and snapping photos?
They couldn’t handle it. They called us this morning and said they were out. Vince and Axl literally spent all afternoon on the phone with them trying to convince them to play the show, but to no avail.
No one is more heart-broken than we are. But the good news is that every other band previously scheduled to play The Metal Suckfest is STILL going to rock your face. So if Lake Bukkake don’t wanna be there, well… their loss.
Tickets to both days of The Metal Suckfest are just $25 until 10 pm tonight, even if you buy them online — there are NO service fees. Buy tickets here.
And see ya tomorrow!!!
