Icelandic Volcano Trolls Angry at Coachella

It's kind of hard to believe, but a volcano in Iceland is messing with the Coachella lineup. Apparently, the subterranean Icelandic magma-trolls have became incensed (I guess that is what happen when Jonsi leaves Iceland) and caused a volcano to erupt, sending volcanic ash into the air above the North Atlantic and forcing many flights from Europe to be canceled. Included in the disruption was the Cribs' flight to Coachella; same with Bad Lieutenant and Frightened Rabbit. (Here is actually a reason I am happy to not be there—if I'd been looking forward to seeing Frightened Rabbit this weekend, I would now be broken-hearted.)

UPDATE: Gary Numan, too. Bummer.
