Japanese Breakfast Cancels Rochester Show Due To Venue Hosting QAnon-Friendly Event

Japanese Breakfast Cancels Rochester Show Due To Venue Hosting QAnon-Friendly Event

According to Brooklyn Vegan, alternative pop band Japanese Breakfast has canceled their show in Rochester, New York after finding out that a QAnon-friendly event would be taking place at the same venue. The show was originally scheduled for September 27 at Main Street Armory, unfortunately the band has not rescheduled the date yet as no venues in the area are available.

“Rochester show at the Armory. We have canceled the event because a number of people reached out letting us know they were boycotting the venue because of the Reawaken America tour. We were told the event was canceled and later learned it was secretly still moving forward,” The band shared in a statement posted to Twitter, “It’s a picket line we support and are not interested in crossing. We are unfortunately unable to move the event to a different venue this time but we love Rochester and I am sure we will return someday soon.”
