"sad to report that, due to the imminent approach of Hurricane Irene, we are exercising discretion as the better part of valor and preemptively canceling the Sunday, August 28th Central Park show.

Again, the Sunday, August 28 Jagged Edge, Avant and Melanie Fiona show at Central Park is now CANCELED due to Hurricane Irene."

That would have been the final free show at Central Park Summerstage this summer. Six more chances to pay to go there (aka Rumsey Playfield) in September.

Update: the 8/28 show is now rescheduled for 9/21
