Rocks Off just got word from AEG Live that Friday night's "Unwigged & Unplugged" acoustic show, featuring original Spinal Tap members David St. Hubbins, Nigel Tufnel and Derek Smalls, has been moved from Jones Hall to House of Blues. Mysteriously, no reason was given, but shows never seem to move from a large venue to a smaller one because they sell too many tickets, now do they?
All tickets for Jones Hall will be honored, and more tickets will be available (ahem) 10 a.m. Friday morning at the House of Blues box office, 1204 Caroline St. It is nice to see AEG and rival Live Nation, which owns HOB, playing nice, though - guess times are tougher than we thought.
Doors open Friday evening at 6:30 p.m. Opening are the Folksmen, the 1960s group featured in the 2003 documentary A Mighty Wind
, and otherwise almost remembered for its 1962 non-hit song "Old Joe's Place."
