Well, the giddy acoustic flourishes of Guster and Jack's Mannequin's slickly honed alt-rock are apparently not amphitheater-worthy in South Florida this time around.
The two bands' joint summer tour will not take place at the 3,000-capacity Pompano Beach Amphitheatre but will be moved indoors to Revolution, which holds about 1,000. Sluggish ticket sales is a likely motivator for this change, but at least the gig is still on.
According to Revolution's Facebook invite for the show, the all-ages show will honor tickets already purchased for the Pompano show. An added bonus for this change of venue will surely be the air-conditioned comfort.
Guster. With Jack's Mannequin and Augustana. 6:30 p.m. Sunday, August 21, at Revolution, 200 W. Broward Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $31.50; all ages. Click here.
