A Guide To The Havoc That May Be Wreaked By This Weekend's Weather
UPDATED: August 26, 4:10 p.m.
You may have heard that there's a hurricane coming to the metropolitan area this weekend, one that's going to bring wind and rain and other unpleasantries to the outdoors. This weekend is also one of the final weekends where outdoor shows are dotting the city. The collision of these two phenomena means a very heightened possibility of reschedules, cancellations, and other efforts to avoid people getting blown away/struck by lightning/soaking wet while taking in and/or performing music. Below, our list of shows happening this weekend that might be affected by the weather, and their current status. If you have any updates to this listincluding news on indoor shows that might be affected by travel-borne issuesdon't hesitate to drop an email. We'll be updating this post throughout the weekend.
