With the news that Hurricane Sandy is set to cause billions of pounds of damage along the East Coast of America in the coming days, the music world has not escaped the wrath of the tropical storm.
The xx, Grimes, Cat Power and others have been forced to cancel and postpose gigs with Mother Nature set to unleash one of the harshest storms along the coast line.
