Updated: Death Cab for Cutie Live in Malaysia on August 12 or 13 is Cancelled

Yep, apparently there are serious talks at Fatt Cheong coffee shop in Tanjung Malim that work is underway for Death Cab for Cutie to hit these shores sometime in August. The talk also noted that a quote has been received on how much it would cost and check this, the band is apparently very interested to play here. The only thing is to get someone to pay for it. They've apparently already confirmed a show in Jakarta around the same time. So yeah, even if they miss us, you can still hop over there to catch them and eat some genuine Ayam Penyet.

And the reason why we are posting this is if somebody comes up to you and asks you for say, I don't know, 100,000 bucks, you should just give it to them. Why? Cause we said so. And what we say, we usually get. Just ask the lady down the street that serves a mean plate of fried noodles. Whenever we order fried noodles, we get fried noodles.

Update: While us Pirates take great delight in spreading doom, gloom and cheerlessness where ever we are, it still doesn't give us pleasure to announce that the Death Cab for Cutie show in August is cancelled. The official reason is that a Singapore organizer has offered the booking agent a better deal. But apparently, that show is also a little up in the air as far as confirmation goes. The other buzz being touted around is that apparently, the band is only keen to do one show in the region for now because they are planning a SEA tour sometimes later this year/early next year. No concrete word on whether that is true. Mourn ye people, mourn. It's fully deserved.

I would gladly hand over the RM100,000.00 to you. Only I don't have it.

0_o is this true? i don't have to go to jakarta to see them? i'm a bigger fan of all-time quarterback and postal service (and even that 1 record i had and lost with him and andrew kenny), but any ben gibbard band is good to me!
