Viet Cong have show canceled due to name

Posted by johng on Tuesday, March 3, 2015 at 12:40 PM (EST)
Image A promoter has canceled a scheduled March 14 show by rising band Viet Cong. The band was scheduled to play at Dionysus Disco at Oberlin college. However, promoter Ivan Krasnov decided to cancel the show. Krasnov stated:
"As the person behind booking this band, I would first and foremost like to apologize on both my and my booking organization’s behalf for inviting a band with a name that deeply offends and hurts Vietnamese and Vietnamese-American communities, both in Oberlin and beyond. I acknowledge the problematic nature of a band naming themselves “Viet Cong” and extend my apology to anyone hurt or made uncomfortable by the name and its connotations... The fact that the band openly acknowledges their problematic name, yet fails to change it or do anything about it, highlights this blatantly appropriative move, reinforcing a tradition of American (and Western) orientalism and appropriation."
The band has not yet responded. The band released Viet Cong this year. You can click read more for the Promoter's entire statement.
