Tuesday's Beat Connection concert at Orpheum cancelled due to Tropical Storm Debby

So far, Tropical Storm Debby hasn't had a seismic effect on the local concert scene. There just haven't been many huge shows in town the last couple of days. But as is the case all over Florida, its effects will be felt throughout the week. Beat Connection have just been forced to cancel their show on Tuesday at Orpheum, as well as gigs in Orlando and Miami, due to the storm. The group just posted on Facebook:

Damn, very sorry to say but hurricane Debbie has forced us to cancel our upcoming shows in Tampa, Orlando & Miami. Really sad about this, we will do our best to come back.

And this, from local promoter No Clubs: "Tickets will be refunded at point of purchase. The band will reschedule when possible."
