The Antone’s 40th-anniversary celebration scheduled to kick off this year’s KGSR “Blues on the Green” series in Zilker Park on Wednesday has been moved to the following Wednesday, June 3, to allow the park grounds to recover from weekend flooding.

Jimmie Vaughan is still on as host of the event. An Antone’s all-star revue is expected to include performances by Marcia Ball as well as a “special guest” who reportedly really likes Clark bars and Junior Mints.

Tonight’s late-booked Jimmy Buffett show on the outdoor stage at Stubb’s is still on, according to the venue’s website. The show sold out quickly. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 8 p.m.
