Flooding Puts Houston's Concert Plans on Hold, for the Most Part
All morning, the Houston area has been inundated with coverage of the #houstonfloods, which has led to the impressive picture you see above as well as a number of music-related cancellations across the area. In most cases, refunds for the canceled shows will be available at the point of purchase, but please refer to the venues’ specific Web sites for complete details.
The Generation Axe tour at Revention Music Center, featuring noted guitar-shredders Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, Zakk Wylde and others, has also been scratched, according to Live Nation. So is the show at House of Blues featuring Harlem rapper Dave East and Houston's Doeman.
Due to inclement weather, tonight’s @DaveEast show has unfortunately been cancelled. Refunds are available at point of purchase. Stay safe!— HOB Houston (@HOBHouston) April 18, 2016
However, Bane will proceed as scheduled tonight at Walters Downtown, according to promoter Willow Villareal. Even before the flooding, Houston-based EDM/pop singer Sugar Joiko’s show at Warehouse Live had already been canceled “due to unforseen circumstances,” according to the venue’s website. The status of other regularly scheduled Monday-night events is undetermined.
One venue that appears to be open this evening is Montrose bar The Flat, whose long-running Rocksteady Mondays (hosted by DJ Rolle) will proceed as scheduled. Happy hour starts at 4 p.m., for those who can get there.
The Houston Press will continue to update this article as more information becomes available. If you have firsthand knowledge of another musical event that either is or isn't happening tonight, please drop us a line.
