M.I.A. Promises Free Show to Make Up for HARD Fest Rainout

As you may have read yesterday, M.I.A.’s headlining performance at the otherwise stellar HARD Fest on Governor’s Island was cut short by lightning after a few songs. Some have said this was a blessing in disguise—that her set was headed toward disaster, with bad sound and overall sloppiness wreaking havoc. She’s promised to make up for it, though: via Twitter yesterday, M.I.A. promised a free NYC show to anyone still holding their HARD Fest tickets. This is certainly a nice gesture, and it will be great if it happens, but given her recent past, one must wonder if this is just Maya being Maya.
