Well, unsurprisingly, the show cancellations for tomorrow night are already rolling in: Just got word that tomorrow night's Retribution Gospel Choir/Peter Wolf Crier concert at the Billiken Club is off due to the weather. The venue does note, however, that it "hope[s] to find a mutually agreeable date to reschedule the show as soon as possible." (Notes an RFT freelancer, when told of the news: "Icequake 1, Face-melting rock 0.")
I'm pretty sure that this will not be the only concert nixed due to the weather, so keep coming back to this post for the latest info!
[Update, 10:30 a.m. February 1: Braids at Old Rock House tonight is officially off.
[Update, 2:30 p.m. January 31:] The Firebird has canceled shows tonight and on Wednesday. Says the venue's Facebook page:
"Getting ahead of the weather here, folks. Mike Pinto tonight and Queen's Club on Wednesday are both canceled. Refunds are available at point of purchase. Stay warm and be safe! See you this weekend for our 2nd Anniversary shows!"
[Update, 2:41 p.m.] Headquarters tonight at the Gramophone is canceled.
[Update, 3:25 p.m.] Rebelution has just postponed its February 1 St. Louis show at the Pageant until February 7. Says the band: "If you already have tickets they will 100% be valid for those shows. Stay safe and dry and we look forward to seeing you then!"
