Here's a note from its agency explaining the vehicle troubles:
April Smith and the Great Picture Show have unfortunately been forced to cancel their shows this week in St. Louis, Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh due to mechanical difficulties with their tour vehicle.
The vehicle in question, a mischievous RV named Norman, has become enough of a recurring character in April Smith's tour chronicles that he's even got his own Twitter account: http://twitter.com/normanthebus
Suffice to say, this may be the last nail in his coffin. Creative ideas for destroying a recreational vehicle are welcomed. Meanwhile, Smith and her band apologize to their fans in the Midwest, and regret the last-minute cancellations.
CANCELED SHOWS: March 22 - Off Broadway Nightclub - St. Louis, MO March 23 - Schubas - Chicago, IL March 24 - Beachland Ballroom - Cleveland, OH March 25 - Club Cafe - Pittsburgh, PA
