As far as we know, tonight’s show at Smoke & Barrel is still a go. However, after checking the scheduled bands’ Facebook pages, we’re a little concerned. NY-based Summer People list tonight’s show as being in Fayetteville, Ak (Alaska) and Cleveland’s HotChaCha posted something about playing in “laffayete” this evening. Here’s hoping they make it to Arkansas.
Kidding, of course. They’re common mistakes. That’s why we made this shirt.
According to the folks at Smoke & Barrel, this show has been moved to tomorrow, Tuesday, Sept. 6, 2011.
The rest of tonight’s calendar is pretty slim, but hey, it’s a holiday.
Enjoy the day off if you’ve got it.
