Whoa Nellie: Maybe next time...
Despite all the rain, our pal Edouard seems to be turning out to be something of a dud. Nonetheless, sharp-tongued British-born New York singer-songwriter Nellie McKay has cancelled her show scheduled for tonight at Warehouse Live. (No word on a reschedule date yet, but stay tuned.)
Also, take note of this: Cat Power (right) has been moved from Oct. 22 to Oct. 10, still at Warehouse Live.
Curious, Rocks Off decided to call a few other local music-related businesses to see whether they're open or not. So if you decide to venure out into the rain to buy a guitar or CD, have at it.
Cactus Music: No answer
Sound Exchange: "It doesn't seem too bad, so we'll be here all day."
Evans Music City: "We'll be open until 6:30, unless we float away."
Rockin' Robin: "You bet."
Sig's Lagoon: "Why wouldn't we be?"
Rudyard's: "Yep." - Chris Gray
