Pinetop Perkins to miss Friday's concert at Skipper's Smokehouse
Normally we'd be pissed that an artist had to cancel a show because of snow in the midwest. But when that artist is 97-year-old blues master Pinetop Perkins, we suppose we can cut him some slack.
Yes, Perkins has bowed out of Friday's show at Skipper's Smokehouse because his flight from Austin, Texas is snowed in. The show will go on with Willie "Big Eyes" Smith and Liz Pennock and Dr. Blues, with a reduced cover of $15.
