Not one, but two helpings of the dismal life of Derrick May in one day! Never let it be said I don’t look after my readers well. Fresh from his recent cancellation by the Detroit Historical Society, it appears that May has another evening at leisure to enjoy.
Remember that he was going to do an evening online with an orchestra in Poland this weekend? That looks like it’s off as well. The venue didn’t reply to an email from me on the subject, but they did respond to Annabel Ross.
thanks to @warnagra & everyone else who asked @FilharmoniaSZN to reconsider booking Derrick May. In an email, they said, "in the light of ever new reports – we undertake activities that will allow us to leave the stage to artists whose behavior does not undermine moral values…" https://t.co/OgTYbGQcZd— Annabel Ross (@annabel_ross) May 5, 2021
Reading through the broken English, it did sound like they were saying the event was no longer happening. And by the looks of the website, the event isn’t on the schedule – although the event page is still online at the moment.
Oh well, look at the bright side. At least the poor schmuck who has to listen to what May “plays” is now spared the ordeal…
UPDATE 11pm: I’ve since had it categorically confirmed that May will not be appearing.
