Calvin College (MI) nixed an upcoming New Pornographers show. The honestly of their explanation is endearing:

"After weeks of discussion and consideration, the irony of the band's name was impossible to explain to many," the college said in a statement. "The band's name, to some, is mistakenly associated with pornography. Consequently, Calvin, to some, was mistakenly associated with pornography. Neither the college nor the band endorses pornography."
