Some bad news: That super-cool show featuring The Jim Rose Circus and Jake "The Snake" Roberts at The Clubhouse in Tempe on September 2 has been canceled. The promoter, Stateside Presents, says:
Unfortunately, Jim Rose received an injury last weekend and will have to rest up a bit before continuing his tour. Jim took a hard blow to the head when he got hit by a metal chair during a match. A rescheduled date will be announced in the next few weeks. All tickets sold will be refunded at point of purchase.
