Michael Franti Drops Off Tomorrow Night's Counting Crows Show At Nokia

In this past week's print edition, Observer contributor Chris Parker chatted up rebel rocker Michael Franti, talking about his new reggae infused sound in Spearhead in anticipation of his show tomorrow night at Grand Prairie's Nokia Theatre alongside Counting Crows and Augustana.

Well, turns out Franti won't be making the gig, after all. Last week, Franti suffered nasty appendix burst--one of the worst the doctors that treated him in LA have ever seen, according to this official statement--and it's keeping him off the road until Thursday.
