THURS Oct 9 – Beacon, NY – Dogwood Bar (47 East Main St) (Jeffrey Lewis solo acoustic)
CANCELED (as of Sept 30) :
!!!!!!!! : ( UH-OH, CANCELLATIONS : ( !!!!!!!!
Fat White Family are canceling all of their middle-USA (and Canada) gigs between Boston and Portland, so that means a number of previously announced Fat White Family/Jeffrey Lewis gigs are now NOT happening (news as of Sept 30). Jeffrey has managed to re-book most of the areas but we haven’t been able to re-book Toronto, Minneapolis and Denver, and the new situation also makes it impossible for the planned additional Jeffrey Lewis middle-USA gigs in Des Moines & Omaha to be able to happen, without the Fat White Family tour past those areas creating the travel situation. Apologies! Hopefully we’ll get back to those lost/cancelled locations someday soon.
