That's lame. There are thunderstorms in the forecast for tomorrow, but very little chance of rain on Saturday and next to no rain on Sunday.

Yeah, I know. It's a bummer. Probably the last chance I'll get to finally see Sunn also.

Saturday morning could be pretty bad weather wise.

Yeah, it could. With the camping and everything I can see why they had to cancel (they at least make it sound like the decision was made for them), it still sucks though.

Pinthouse Pizza has a very good selection of draft brews.

damn that's nuts...I guess if they do it prior to they can make an insurance claim for far more than if they had to cancel halfway into Saturday or something.

I heard the weather concerns have a lot to do with the chance of large hail

Mainly it was cancelled because last year when it did rain, the grounds were so bad, people got up to a knee deep in mud/water and they don't want a repeat of that with the bad weather.

Shows that are being moved are being announced here - https://www.facebook.com/groups/gallavanteer/?hc_location=ufi :pint:

Hey Austin-ites! I've got two extra tix for the Sunn/Sleep/Boris show at the Mohawk tomorrow (for cost).

Hit me up if you're interested. (I know it's not entirely fair to lurkers and noobs, but preference will be give to members with some level of board presence. I'll be away for a few hours doing family stuff, so have patience if I don't get back to you right away.)

Modification of above request:

Good place to eat within decent walking distance of Mohawk. Good beer selection is still preferable. (Apologies if one of the suggestions given fits this criteria, I don't know Austin well at all)

Easy Tiger is literally like 4 blocks from Mohawk. :-)
