Another Rain Casualty: Heartworn Highways Benefit Cancelled, Saturday [3/13/2009 05:02:00 PM]:
Crap. This one sounded like a very cool deal, and I was getting all ready to enthuse-enthuse-enthuse about it (no, really). The Heartworn Highways
show was supposed
to take place tomorrow (Sat., March 14th
) over at The Orange Show
, but due to the nonstop rain we've had these past 48 hrs. or so in various parts of town, well, it ain't happening, at least not when it was originally scheduled.
Which sucks, because they had a good lineup going -- Robert Ellis (who I've already yammered a bit about today), John Hogan, Matt Harlan, John Evans, & Carey Wolf were all supposed to play, doing their own undoubtedly sweet, cool renditions of Townes Van Zandt (and Blaze Foley, too, although I'm a bit ignorant as to who that is, sorry) classics. To add insult to injury, it was going to be a benefit for the beleaguered Old Quarter Acoustic Cafe down in Galveston, which suffered quite a bit of damage in the last large pile of rain & wind we had here; kind of a painful irony that even a benefit show to help the place get back on its feet is being struck down by the weather.
Happily, it sounds like the show's not totally dead in the water, just rescheduled a ways down the road, in hopefully less-soggy months. The Orange Show folks are tentatively rescheduling for Sat., June 13th, so mark your calendars and keep an eye on their site for updates.
