Message from Leah/Moon Block Party announcement

Earlier today, Leah of BRMC posted an announcement on the band’s website and Facebook page about having a personal medical issue called Chiari Malformations, a structural defect found in her brain and skull that affect her balance and other functions, which will require emergency surgery. Unfortunately, this means BRMC have to cancel their upcoming performance at Moon Block Party:

Dear Moon Block Party Fans,

We are sad to announce that BRMC have cancelled their performance at Saturdays Pomona Fairplex show due to a serious illness within the band.
Please follow this link for the bands offical statement:
As a team, Moon Block Party are beside ourselves and wish Leah a swift recovery. We would urge you the fans to come out to the festival and enjoy the amazing line up we have still performing. At this time we are trying to find a replacement band but we know you will appreciate that we are a day away from the show and perhaps this will not be possible.
We would like Moon Block Party to act as a conductor of positive energy in which thousands of us will come together, through music and focus our energy towards Leah in this unsettling time for her. We understand that this totally sucks for all those who were excited to see BRMC, but it sucks even more for Leah. This is bigger than the festival. Our thoughts are with you Leah. We are staying positive and hope to have a great show with you in our hearts and minds.

We’re still waiting to see if there will be a last minute replacement, until then please send all your love and support to Leah during this time and let’s hope she has a fast and full recovery!
