Event description

OK, first THANK YOU everyone for commenting on my post! And now the sad news y'all have mostly been expecting I believe. I AM OFFICIALLY POSTPONING this beautiful HINDSIGHT reunion thang to May of 2021. The first weekend in September (Labor Day), while seemingly quite far off, ain't that far off at all given what is happening in the world right now. I would very dearly love to see everyone much sooner than 2021, but we all need to put this rock-n-roll gathering on the back burner for now. SIGH. But good things come to those who wait right? And patience is a virtue. I will get with all of the bands and musicians come summertime and hopefully relaunch a new event soon thereafter. So stay tuned, stay in touch, and stay safe and healthy please.


PS. TICKET REFUNDS will processed by Eventbrite shortly. Someone asked me if they could donate their money to The Loose Cobra and/or Rose Bowl Tavern since those venues have been greatly impacted by the state of Illinois' shelter-in-place mandate. While that is a wonderful and generous idea, I cannot facilitate that transfer of funds as a middle man unfortunately. But if any of you wish to seek out either of those establishments on social media, I believe they both have some type of live stream situations and merch sales happening in the wake of all of this.

PPS. Regarding PLANE FLIGHTS... someone else suggested that I hip people who already have airline tickets to the link below. Essentially it says it may be a good bet to just wait and let the airline cancel the tickets because then they have to offer you a refund. It is likely that many who have tickets already are flying into Champaign, and flights to tiny Willard Airport, which are small already, may have a higher likelihood of being cancelled. Nothing is for sure, but for some people it seems a pretty good gamble to wait and let the airline cancel. Maybe give it a read.
