The first performance of the 24th season of KGSR's Blues on the Green has been postponed. Due to the heavy rain on Memorial Day weekend, KGSR announced Tuesday that the Saints of Valory performance will not take place on Wednesday, May 28.  

"Yes, it's true. In and effort to protect Zilker Park after all the rain we received over the weekend, KGSR and the Parks and Recreation department have agreed to postpone the first Blues on the Green show of 2014," KGSR stated on its website. 

However, music fans won't have to wait long to start the annual summer tradition. Saints of Valory will kick off the series by playing Zilker Park on Wednesday, June 4. The opening act (originally scheduled to be The Wind and the Wave) has not yet been announced. 

KGSR's Blues on the Green happens alternating Wednesdays at Zilker Park throughout the summer.

Here's the updated lineup:

June 4: Saints of Valory with opening act TBD
June 11: Heartless Bastards with Dana Falconberry
June 25: Shinyribs with Tameca Jones
July 9: Grupo Fantasma with Greyhounds
July 23: 2014 ACL Music Festival Preview featuring Robert Ellis with The Nightowls
