A Guide To The Havoc That May Be Wreaked By This Weekend's Weather

Categories: Cancellations

UPDATED: August 26, 4:10 p.m.

You may have heard that there's a hurricane coming to the metropolitan area this weekend, one that's going to bring wind and rain and other unpleasantries to the outdoors. This weekend is also one of the final weekends where outdoor shows are dotting the city. The collision of these two phenomena means a very heightened possibility of reschedules, cancellations, and other efforts to avoid people getting blown away/struck by lightning/soaking wet while taking in and/or performing music. Below, our list of shows happening this weekend that might be affected by the weather, and their current status. If you have any updates to this list—including news on indoor shows that might be affected by travel-borne issues—don't hesitate to drop an email. We'll be updating this post throughout the weekend.

I don't think the Afro Punk festival is going since a ton of bands are saying it's canceled...right?

Dave Matthews on Gov Island still happening on Sunday...the day of the hurricane?! I don't think so.....even though the ride is about 6 minutes, no way will anyone with an ounce of sanity allow boats to take people there given the extremely high winds expected...Plus, the many stages that have recently collapsed in freaky weather will be another factor that won't be dismissed.

I just paíd $20.87 for an íPad 2.64GB and my boyfriend loves his Panasoníc Lumíx GF 1 Cámera that we got for $38.79 there arriving tomorrow by UP S.I will never pay such expensive retail príces in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LCD T V to my boss for $657 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from : BidsBit.com
