FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEAMERICAN BAND GOATCRAFT TO PERFORM IN CRIMEA WITH RUSSIAN BLESSINGAmbient “Necroclassical” band approved by Russian authorities despite hostilitiesimg001Although the recent political controversy over ownership of Crimea has caused tension between NATO and Russia, American ambient industrial band Goatcraft will perform on April 26th at the КІЗ переможе theater in Crimea with the blessing of Russian authorities.Taking advantage of an obscure Russian law that allows “cultural events” to go on even in the advent of military conflict or declared emergency, San Antonio, Texas based Goatcraft filed a declaration in Russia this week, and received notification 24 hours later that its performance could go on as scheduled.“Goatcraft is about all that defeats our rationality and sanity,” said Goatcraft composer and keyboardist Lonegoat. “We humans try to make sense of the universe, but it always finds cracks in our explanations and works around our rules. Goatcraft is proud to be playing in a place where sanity has broken down and warfare, misery and raw humansuffering prevails!”Russian authorities were more matter-of-fact. “It is our duty to ensure that the economy of Crimea remains unhindered and that all emporeutic exchanges flourish during this time of transition,” Customers supervisor Afanasy Volkov stated via press release from his office in Yalta. “We will direct the American performers to the place of performance and then ensure they are sent home quickly.”Pre-sale tickets for the show can be purchased through Ticketmaster Moscow. Concert-goers are advised that their safety cannot be guranteed, and are warned that bringing weapons to the performance may trigger international combat.
