In a sudden and unexpected departure, The Sword‘s drummer Trivett Wingo has left the band. Hoping to quash any rumors to the contrary, both sides are reporting that the decision was made amicably. Nevertheless, The Sword has canceled the remainder of its US tour dates, just after canceling a number of European dates.
Our plans this weekend include local shows with the massive stoner metal of The Sword, the experimental jazz of the Umbrella Music Festival, and the raw alt-country of O’death.
And our friends in Austin have another great festival of their own, as the Fun Fun Fun Fest run on Saturday and Sunday.
