92 ZEW REGRETS TO ANNOUNCE THE CANCELLATION OF ZEWTOPIA II


Gov't Mule
Due to circumstances beyond our control and a break down in communication between the promoter and the band's booking agencies, the 2 day festival Zewtopia (Mobile, AL) has been cancelled. All ticket holders will receive a full refund. If you bought your tickets using a credit card, you will recieve a full refund posted to your account by Weds, April 18. Those who bought your tickets with cash at Bebo's Car Wash, can receive a refund beginning Wednesday April 18 at the location where purchased. Etix customers should receive an email regarding your refund at the beginning of the week. 2 of the bands scheduled, Gov't Mule and Drive-By Truckers will play at the Soul Kitchen Friday and Saturday nights, respectively. Zewtopia tickets will not be honored at the Soul Kitchen and tickets for these shows may be purchased by clicking here. 92 ZEW deeply regrets the cancellation and appreciates those of you who continually support live music in Mobile.

I care...it's not that often that we get a semi-decent, small festival around south Mississippi/Alabama that's not Jazz fest. I was looking forward to it, but oh well, STS9 tonight at the Soul Kitchen...Woooooo

"Due to circumstances beyond our control and a break down in communication between the promoter and the band's booking agencies"

That's PR bullshit. Sounds like the promoter didn't have the money. It's a radio station festival. Probably been hyped for weeks. There would be no "breakdown in communication".

Diffusion of responsability is a funny thing. Mule and DBT have historically been road dogs. I seriously doubt that their very experienced booking agents dropped the ball on this one.

Check out this "Mickey Mousesque" exerpt from the 92ZEW station web site:

"...Those who bought your tickets with cash at Bebo's Car Wash, can recieve a refund beginning Weds April 18th at the location where purchased."

Tickets at a car wash! TOO FUNNY!

Sounds like HOBSTOCK all over again. Stay away from festivals in Alabama.

Not quite surlybuf! There is one truly awesome fest in Alabama at the Acoustic Cafe outside of Hayden. It draws around a 1000 and is very sweet and kind. It is held the last weekend in May.
