Explains Z: “I was really looking forward to getting together with some of my best friends and jam out this weekend but I am having to undergo a surgical procedure that same day which, unfortunately, cannot be postponed. And even though it’s nothing major I’m gonna have to take it easy for a couple of days before I can go full tilt again. Kavan are taking over our slot so the show is still going on as planned. Go check it out!”
