Mishawaka Amphitheatre cancels all shows in the coming week due to High Park Fire

If you were planning to head up the Mishawaka Amphitheatre to see Walkers & Pimps of Joytime, the Motet, Dubskin, Richard Thompson or Bruce Hornsby, all outfits slated to appear between tomorrow and next Friday, you might want to make some other plans.

We just received word from Roger Menell that due to the High Park Fire, which is currently raging in Northern Colorado, the Mish is canceling all its shows in the coming week. While the venue itself is safe, Highway 14 is closed between Ted's Place and Walden, Menell reports, and evacuation is still in effect for that area.

Refunds will be automatically issued, and business will resume as soon as things are safe up there, hopefully in time for Dark Star Orchestra on June 29. Keep an eye on this space for updates. In the meantime, our thoughts and prayers go out to the folks in that area.
