Isn't this place supposed to be a desert?
This new weather system that is moving in promises to bring about a half-inch of rain has already done some damage. Stateside Presents announced today via a press release that the Belle & Sebastian show scheduled for Civic Space Park on Wednesday, October 8, has been moved to Orpheum Theatre due to the expected rainfall.
On one hand, we were looking forward to seeing how Civic Space Park would function as a major concert venue. On the other hand, Orpheum is a gorgeous, underused music venue, and the more shows that happen there, the better.
Ticket-holders for whom Orpheum won't do can request a full refund by noon Wednesday. Those who purchased tickets with assigned seating will receive a $5 credit per ticket. The show at the Orpheum will be entirely general admission. The show will start at 6 p.m.
