In the wake of last week’s unfortunate Langerado cancellation, there is some good news for those of you who still plan on heading down to Florida as a number of bands who had plans to play the fest have picked up shows in the area over the same weekend. Girl Talk and Deerhunter will share a bill at Ft. Lauderdale’s Culture Room, while Modest Mouse will take the stage at Revolution. The Pogues will be at Pompano Beach’s Pompano Amphitheatre, while King Khan & The Shrines will hold court in Miami at Vagabonds.
