This one hurts. News came today that venerable European free jazz titan Peter Brötzmann has canceled his May show at the Timucua Arts Foundation house. This show was to be the Orlando debut of the Full Blast trio, and though we might have preserved some of our hearing, we're definitely saddened by this news.

Watch the below video fo Full Blast or videos of his previous Timucua engagements. It might be quite some time before live music events return to our area.

(UPDATE: Civic Minded 5 organizers assure us that they and Brötzmann are working hard to reschedule this date in the near future.)
