A handful of local music events were affected by Austin’s brush with the outer bands of Hurricane Harvey over the weekend.

  • Lyle Lovett performed his scheduled Saturday show at ACL Live, but the second show was canceled “due to the hazardous weather conditions impacting travel in the Austin area” and “to ensure the wellbeing of the patrons, staff, and artists.” according to a post on the venue’s Facebook page. The statement added that “refunds for tickets purchased through Ticketfly and LyleLovett.com will be processed within 7-10 days through point of purchase.”
  • Nutty Brown Amphitheatre’s show with the Josh Abbott Band on Saturday has been rescheduled for Oct. 27. According to the venue’s Facebook page, “All tickets from the original date will be honored, and if you are unable to attend the rescheduled date, please contact Ticketfly by August 31.” UPDATE: Another Nutty Brown show, with Nashville country singer Jake Owen on Sept. 2, also has been canceled, “due to the mass devastation in Southeast Texas,” per a statement from promoter Paragon/Nederlander. Tickets will be refunded at the point of purchase, per the statement.
  • Canadian rock band A Simple Plan postponed its Saturday concert at Emo’s. A press release from show promoter C3 Presents did not mention refunds, stating only, “We encourage ticket holders to hold onto their tickets for the soon-to-be-announced rescheduled date.”
  • C3 Presents also announced that Canadian indie singer-songwriter City and Colour canceled Tuesday’s scheduled show at Stubb’s, along with dates in Houston and San Antonio. “Orders have been fully refunded and will reflect on your account within 48-72 hours,” the statement read.
  • South Congress hot spot the Continental Club lost power on Saturday and moved a performance by Los Coast and the Jungle Rockers down the street to its sister club C-Boy’s, which did not have a power outage. Sunday’s shows at the Continental were canceled when power had not yet been restored. Power has now been restored, allowing the club to reopen for its usual Monday shows, according to owner Steve Wertheimer.
  • And in the hill country, the Kerrville Fall Music Festival announced it’s canceling this weekend’s three-day event because of “the number of our festival attendees and volunteers who are impacted by the damaging floods from Hurricane Harvey, according to executive director Mary Muse.
