The Weeknd Postpones Next Thursday's Show; Drake Actually Not That Into Cardigans

Just yesterday,

we informed you

that Toronto PBR&B kingpin The Weeknd would be making its United States debut at


's Upfront Extravaganza. Alas,

he's no longer on the bill

, although the event will still go down at Skylight One Hanson next week and feature, among others, Tanlines, Unknown Mortal Orchestra, Nick Zinner (of Yeah Yeah Yeahs), A-Trak, and Black Lips.

Drake—who stopped by the Spaceghostpurrp/ASAP Rocky show last night—broke the news in an interview with The New York Observer's Nate Freeman:

NYO: It's a shame that you have to leave, your buddy The Weeknd is going to be playing his first US show next week.

DRAKE: Actually, no he's not, it got cancelled. It's pushed back.

NYO: Oh really? I was going to go, I thought it was next week.

DRAKE: I think they're rescheduling for the end of the month. I wouldn't miss that for the world.

And, regarding cardigans, from the same interview:

NYO: There's been much made about you wearing sweaters and cardigans. I don't know if you read that online; people are really talking. About you, wearing cardigans.

DRAKE: Yeah I don't know why, man. I never feel like I go that hard with it. I think it peaked the other day when I wore this Missoni sweater on the MTV awards, and you know what? I just like to be comfortable, I don't really give a shit. All those tight leather jackets-But if I dressed any other way, they would scrutinize that too.

Upcoming Events

So there you have it. (For the record, he was wearing flannel last night.)
