Snowstorm traps rock band Interpol
NEW YORK, USA – Wednesday's epic snowstorm turned a drive of a few hours into a two-day wintry slog for rock band Interpol, thwarted in its valiant effort to keep its Canada gigs.
The band missed a performance late Tuesday, November 18 in Toronto and canceled another in Montreal for Thursday, November 20 after being caught in the blizzard that trapped the musicians in their bus for more than 40 hours.
The New York-based group tweeted pictures Wednesday of their bus stuck in mounds of snow near Buffalo, New York.
"Dry goods and vodka. We will make it," guitarist Daniel Kessler tweeted along with pictures of the band settling in with their refreshments for a snowed-in night on the bus.

The band, known for bleak but dreamy post-punk-influenced rock in songs such as "Obstacle 1," and "Slow Hands" had been traveling from a concert Monday, November 17 in Columbus, Ohio.
At least 8 people have died in the snowstorm, which dumped more than 5 feet around the Buffalo area, which could be hit by the equivalent of a year's worth of snow in just two days. – Rappler.com
