Due to illness, Pokey LaFarge will be unable to perform on April 14th as originally planned. His show has been rescheduled for April 20th at the same time and place.
Here is what he said on twitter:
So sorry, folks but I have to cancel this weekends’ shows due to a mysterious, mostly crippling ‘viral’ infection. Not really sure what the heck is going on but the doc has me on drugs, bed rest, and on the mend. Please forgive me. pic.twitter.com/71rZG0heDV
