(UPDATE) WEDNESDAY LOWDOWN: Oh No! A Pink Floyd, Phish AND Talking Heads Tribute Band?

UPDATE, 2:45 p.m.: HumBrews sends along some :( news:

Pink Talking Fish had to cancel our show tonight (Wed) because their vehicle broke down. Please share, let your friends know and help us get the word out. You can get your tickets refunded at the place of original purchase. Online tickets will be refunded in a few business days to the credit card used. Apologies, folks, we are super bummed too.

Sorry, Pink Floyd/Talking Heads/Phish superfans! Replacement fun can be procured by scrolling your Lowdown below. Perhaps a trip to Minnesota (ATL) is in order?
