According to multiple reports, the Dumile was a no-show this past Saturday at his live show. One person in attendance said, "a fake MF DOOM appeared briefly then walked off". Then, apparently, "an audience member hops on the mic and demands for money back", only to catch a fist to the face from "some random lame lyricist 'Special Guest'.
Word is that the 'DOOMPOSTER' never touched the mic. at all, and new tracks were simply spun on a laptop.
In an e-mail sent by Consequence of Sound to Stones Throw, the label said, it was “obvious that he wasn’t going to show up at a venue that fits only 200 people when his performance fee requires venues about 10 times that size.” That said, they would neither confirm nor deny if it was indeed an imposter.
DOOM currently has live show lined up at the end of January with Mos; should be interesting to see if he shows.
