It's not very often that something in San Diego is canceled because of weather—in fact, that's more or less the one thing you can count on in our temperate burg. But as it turns out, the Wednesday, Oct. 9, San Diego Music Awards ceremony has been postponed one week, and will now be held Oct. 16 at Humphreys Concerts by the Bay.
In a statement released by the San Diego Music Foundation—the organization behind the awards (full disclosure: board president Kevin Hellman is CityBeat's publisher)—the reason behind the postponement was a forecast of rainstorms moving into the region this week. Humphreys, it should be noted, is an outdoor venue.
On Oct. 16, the regular program will go on as scheduled, and Sara Watkins, Tristan Prettyman, Sara Petite, Blackout Party, The Palace Ballroom and Lifetime Achievement winner Daniel Jackson will still perform. The Heavy Guilt, however, had to back out because of their tour schedule.
