A few nights ago Wolf Parade played their final North American show in support of At Mount Zoomer at the Wellmont Theatre in Montclair, New Jersey. When they returned to the stage for an encore, Dan told the crowd that Hadji would not be joining the band on their upcoming European tour. We’re sad to hear buy cheap cialis online this news and hope this wont be the last we see of Mr Bakara. Hadji has a full length LP coming out soon with his DJ/remix group Megasoid. You can download a bunch of Megasoid mixtapes here and you can read a write up about them in the New Yorker. To see if Megasoid is playing a club near you, keep checking their myspace page.

Wolf Parade begins their European tour in Helsinki, Finland today. For a full list of dates, check the tour section.
