The opening night of the Labatt Canal Concert Series will be postponed a week as the season's first show, Puddle of Mudd, has been canceled.
That event was set to go off on Friday at a new venue behind the Lockport Library, but organizers announced the cancellation on Thursday afternoon.
Puddle of Mudd, which had the hits "Blurry" and "She Hates Me," also canceled an appearance in Rochester that was scheduled on Thursday. According to the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, a flight cancellation prevented the band's lead singer from arriving in Rochester.
