Bad news if you we're planning to get down tomorrow night with a certain Funky Homosapien named Del: We've just received word that the iconic rapper -- last seen around these parts at the Westword Music Showcase this past summer -- won't be performing tomorrow night in Denver. The show has been postponed due to illness, but Del is slated to return to the Bluebird on Friday, December 23, just in time to make the holidays extra funky. If you're holding tickets to tomorrow's show, they'll be honored, or refunds are available at point of purchase.
