Tonight’s Hot Tuna show is canceled

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

Per the band’s website:

Jack Casady’s wife, longtime love Diana, is in the late stages of a rare form of cancer. She has fought an amazing fight for over ten years. It is with a heavy heart that Hot Tuna announces that they are canceling the last three dates in this six week Steady As She Goes tour. Please keep Diana and Jack in your thoughts and prayers and please send Diana love and light. In Latin the name Diana means “luminous.” Indeed she is and will always be.

Sad news. Best wishes to Diana and Jack.

Refunds are available at the point of purchase, says the promoter.

As always, there’s lots of live music to hear in Central Oregon this week. Here are a bunch of stories that aren’t about a Portland music festival that’s still more than a week away:

— The iconic blues-jam band Hot Tuna comes to the Tower Theatre next week. Here’s our interview with legendary guitarist Jorma Kaukonen.

— Longtime local DJ Harlo (aka Jason Harlowe) is both celebrating a new CD and saying farewell to Bend tonight at the Astro Lounge. He’s moving to the Portland area.

Elsewhere in this week’s music section: Big Head Todd & The Monsters visit the Athletic Club of Bend, What The Festival?! brings electronic stars to White River Canyon, Parrilla Grill hosts the Moon Mountain Ramblers, Paul Thorn plays a free show at Les Schwab Amphitheater, Tango Alpha Tango comes to McMenamins, and the Northwest Best series kicks off at Liquid Lounge with The Melodramatics and Necktie Killer. Plus, all-events passes to the Sisters Folk Festival are getting ready to jump in price, so grab ’em now. Oh, and Chris Young, Uncle Kracker, former Bad Company singer Brian Howe and Hot Chelle Rae are playing shows at the Deschutes County Fair.
