Rocks Off is still working on the details, but according to massive Twitter reporting by fans at Stubb's off Red River, a camera boom injured about four fans on Saturday night before a set by Orchestral Maneuvers In the Dark.

Updated: According to a Rocks Off follower who was at the venue earlier in the evening, stage crew had been working on repairing the boom rig around the time City and Colour was playing.

Rocks Off began hearing about this incident 30 minutes ago now, but at the time it sounded like it was a disturbance with a photographer in the photo pit for OMD.

According to Austin360, and a Austin-Travis County EMS rep, none of the injuries were life-threatening.
