When you first hear vocals from Nashville-based Hannah Wicklund, one word comes to mind: Goddamn. The 20-something singer and guitarist has already racked up quite the list of bands she’s shared billing (Jefferson Starship, The Outlaws, and St. Paul & The Broken Bones), and she was supposed to headline a gig at the recently reopened Hooch and Hive.
The gig would’ve represented another step towards bringing touring acts back to local clubs, but yesterday, after Creative Loafing Tampa Bay’s print issue went to press, Wicklund canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances.” Her shows in Atlanta and Charleston are canceled, too.
“All tickets can be refunded at point of purchase. I cannot wait to perform live once again for y’all, I truly appreciate all of your support and love. Please continue to stay safe and healthy during these times,” Wicklund wrote on social media.
Tampa Bay venues and promoters need you to bug Marco Rubio about saving the live music scene. See a list of Tampa Bay’s “Safe & Sound” live music venues here.
