Bad news, you guys: Mr. Gruff Rhys will not be able to join us as planned next Saturday at the French Legation Museum in Austin. Apparently the Super Furry Animals frontman ran into some visa trouble, a hurdle that will prevent him from making the trip. However, our friends at Domino Publishing and Press Here drank a few liters of coffee, smoked a lot of cigarettes and brainstormed for hours until they could find a suitable replacement. They did. Playing in Rhys' place will be The Ghost Of A Saber Toothed Tiger, a soft-spoken folk duo whose male half may look and sound very very familiar to you.
Stay tuned for an artist-by-artist rundown starting today and on into the heat of next week.
