Blame It on The Rain
Rain washes out two major Austin events
Stop us if you’ve heard this before. The latest Blues on the Green, scheduled for Wednesday, July 16, has been postponed due to rain. KGSR announced Wednesday morning that the free summer concert featuring Shinyribs and Tameca Jones has been rescheduled for Wednesday, August 13.
This isn't the first time this summer that weather has forced Blues on the Green to postpone a concert. In fact, it's not even the first time the Shinyribs show has been rescheduled. This marks the third postponement of Blues on the Green this season; the May 28 Saints of Valory was postponed, as was the June 25 Shinyribs appearance.
But Blues on the Green isn't the only iconic Austin event forced to change its plans this week. The Long Center announced Wednesday afternoon that the July 16 Sound & Cinema show has also been rescheduled due to weather. The performance by Henry + The Invisibles and screening of E.T. will take place Tuesday, July 22.
The updated summer series schedules are listed below.
