"We are super-bummed that the Canadian border patrol has denied us entry to their otherwise fine country today and forced us to cancel our Halloween show in Montreal. We even had ridiculous costumes prepared!
"We are doing everything in our power to sort out the paperwork to make the Toronto show tomorrow, but it doesn't look too likely.
"In case we are forced to cancel Toronto as well, we would be stoked to jump on a metal/punk show in the Buffalo/Cleveland area tomorrow. Please contact our agent, Dan Rozenblum at email@example.com.
"We will do our best keep everybody up on the situation. In the meantime, cheers to our friends in [MUNICIPAL] WASTE, NAPALM DEATH and VEKTOR who will tear Montreal several new orifices tonight!"
