Alas, word comes from on high that Split Works' (almost) annual music festival Black Rabbit isn't happening this year
"Black Rabbit Music Festival partners have decided that the risks of putting on a music festival in 2012 are just too great to proceed. The doubts raised over what will happen during the politically sensitive September/October period added to the profusion of other festivals in Shanghai this year allied to the continuing limitations of our festival philosophy* have lead to the decision that we will not be moving forward together this year."
Although, one would think, that as this Black Rabbit shindig isn't happening, Split Works now has ample free time to get their shit together and finally bring GWAR to China, which would be like twenty million Black Rabbit festivals exploding all over your face.
Make it happen, Split Works. Make it so.
