CMJ Releases Statement On Ebola

Yesterday, we learned the troubling news that Dr. Craig Spencer, the first New York resident to test positive for Ebola, had been out on Wednesday night at the Gutter, a Williamsburg bowling alley that had been hosting unofficial CMJ events. The coming shows at the Gutter were all canceled, with good reason. But the people behind CMJ have now issued a short statement saying that the festival would go on as planned. As Billboard reports, CMJ officials wrote this: “We have been diligently following the news on Ebola and will continue to be proactive of the situation and circumstances. At this time CMJ will continue on as scheduled and if anything should change we will act accordingly.”
