Update: Tuesday, March 17 | Owner Will Walker has announced that Will's Pub, Lil Indies and Dirty Laundry will be closed indefinitely as of today out of concerns for the safety and health of employees, patrons and performers.

As of this writing on Friday afternoon, venerable Orlando venue Will's Pub is expected to remain open and continue to host shows for the near future.

Although touring acts Tim Barry and Field Day have canceled, a Friday, March 13 show featuring locals Grave Return, the Longest Hall and Call in Dead and a Sunday, March 15 show with Jen In the Right Light, GrindstoneSinners, Timothy Eerie and Mansfield are still going ahead.

Earlier today, owner Will Walker told Orlando Weekly the following:

It's understandable that some shows are cancelling. It's been really difficult to navigate so far. I'll be peddling my bike around, selling whiskey. (Joking.)
