DOOM/Mos Def Show Rescheduled For February 13

2010_01_doom.jpg What's a DOOM show without controversy? Pleasing, for one.

For those who were hyped to see the juggernaut of a hip-hop show this Friday at Congress Theatre, "MOSDOOM" has been rescheduled for Saturday, February 13 due to "a scheduling conflict resulting from miscommunication between artists’ management." Turns out Mos Def wouldn't have been able to make the Toronto, New York, or Chicago dates, thus the rescheduling. We're not sure how such an egregious error was made, especially for such a highly-touted bill, but we can be thankful it wasn't canceled. All tickets for January 29th are still good for the new date, which will feature the exact same lineup (a feat in itself).

If you cannot make the new date, full refunds are being offered, thankfully. If you can make the new date, consider it a new lease on life and buy a ticket (or two).
