Also: Craft breweries in mild-delay shocker! And: High-priority swings

On this week's Disclaimer grab bag, WMSE's Ryan Schleicher, A.V. Club Milwaukee editor Matt Wild and I tackle a quartet of unrelated topics. In the wake of a number of high-profile show cancellations, we open the show by responding to an infuriating blog post by the singer from Passion Pit justifying canceled concerts. Our takeaway from that piece? Maybe the band shouldn't even bother booking show...

Passion Pit, Crooked Fingers, Public Enemy, Cypress Hill and Usher

Though Michael Angelakos began Passion Pit as a solo project, writing songs for his girlfriend in his dorm room at Boston’s Emerson College, a lineup of Berklee College of Music students formed around him, and within a year the enthused synth-pop group’s Chunk of Change EP was charming all the right music blogs.
