Well, we all knew it was coming, but now it's official: If you see a suspicious haze over Warehouse Live tonight, it won't be from the Scion-sponsored free Redman show (though the rapper is still scheduled to visit House of Blues with boon bong companion Method Man November 19). Nevertheless, you can be sure somewhere - most likely in Austin - Red is blazing a sympathy joint for all his Houston fans.
From promoter Matt Sonzala:
Due to circumstances caused by Hurricane Ike, and the city wide imposed curfew, we are forced to cancel tonights Redman performance at Warehouse Live. We are hoping to be able to reschedule a date. Log on to www.scion.com/livemetro regularly for updates. Our hearts go out to all of those in Houston and along the Texas Gulf Coast who were affected by Hurricane Ike.
If you happen to be in Austin, or would like to get out of Houston for a night, Redman will still be performing with Connie Price & The Keystones and DJ Cosmo Baker Wednesday night, at The Parish on 6th Street. FLYER FOR WEDNESDAYS AUSTIN SHOW IS ATTACHED IF YOU HAPPEN TO WANT TO GO. HOLLER! Also, I personally hope you are well, please let me know if there is anything I can do.
