Legendary North Carolinian rockabilly/garage band Southern Culture on the Skids have been forced to cancel the reminder of their Florida tour dates – including a show set for tonight at Will's Pub – due to a death in the family.

The band posted the sad news on their Facebook page:

Hi folks, we’re very sorry to announce that Rick’s Dad has passed away. Tonight’s show at the St Augustine Amphitheatre will still go on as planned, but Orlando, Tampa, and Gainesville will be cancelled. We’re sorry for any inconvenience, look for these dates to be rescheduled sometime in the future.

Our condolences and sympathies to the members of SCOTS. Will's Pub will offer information on rescheduling as it becomes available.
