ST. PAUL -- Scottish indie-pop band Belle and Sebastian was booked to play St. Paul’s Palace Theatre on Tuesday night. But the show almost didn’t happen. At 10:23 a.m., lead singer Stuart Murdoch tweeted: “S---, we left Richard in North Dakota. Anyone want to be a hero and get him to St Paul, Minnesota, somehow. The gig hangs in the balance.” That would be Richard Colburn, Belle and Sebastian’s drummer since 1996. Murdoch explained what happened during an interview with DJ Mary Lucia that aired on 89.3 The Current several hours before showtime.
