truyoga summer concerts rescheduled

here's a heads-up:

i ran into peter sterios from truyoga at the global mala beach party last saturday. when i mentioned to him that i was available to volunteer at the next concert scheduled for sunday, july 29th, he said that the music for a cause concert schedule had been changed; all the performances have now been merged into one big shindig on sunday, august 26th.

that surprised me, especially since i hadn't heard about the change anywhere, not even via email from truyoga nor lululemon santa monica (a show sponsor).

i checked their websites, and sure enough, not a peep there either. although all mention of any concert past the one last july 1st is now gone. hmmm.

and even more puzzling is that tom freund, the headliner for 7/29, still has the truyoga gig listed on his website. and girish, the headliner for 8/12, can't possibly be in santa monica on 8/26 because he's supposed to be in encinitas, at least according to his myspace page. so what the final schedule ends up looking like, who knows.

looks to me like the best thing is to call truyoga (310-829-2420) or lululemon santa monica (310-319-9900) if you were planning to show up or if you've already bought tickets for any of the remaining performances.

7/29 update -- i found this semi-confirmation on daphne tse's myspace page (she was scheduled to perform with girish on 8/12):
