Duluth Waits for Shane, Sarah and Josh

Thursday, July 29 | 10pm | Pizza Lucé

Local musicians perform the music of Tom Waits to benefit the hikers detained in Iran.

The lineup will include Coyote, Bill and Kate Isles, Rachael Kilgour, Tony Bennett, the Tico Three, Dave Mehling, James Moors, Jim Hall, Charity Huot and the Mark Anderson Trio.

Cover charge: $10, which goes to Free the Hikers.

On July 31 it will be a full year that Shane Bauer, Sarah Shourd and Josh Fattal have been detained in Iran with no charges brought against them. Shane and Josh have been sharing a cell in Evin’s Prison, but Sarah has been held in solitary confinement.

Bauer is a Minnesotan. His sister and brother-in-law live in Duluth, and he also has family in Shakopee and Pine City.

A protest walk and benefit will be held on July 31. More info on that in a future post.

Sweet concept and a great cause!  I hope the place is packed.  The performers better start smoking a couple packs a day and drinking a lot of bourbon to replicate Tom's distinctive growl.

Ah, show starts at 10PM, and it's 21+.

Note that more names have been added to the list of performers since the original posting.

Nate, are you sure it's 21+? Usually shows at Pizza Luce are all ages.

All shows at Luce are now 21+.

Is there a "somebody ruined it for everyone" story to go with the decision to switch to 21+ at Luce?

I heard it had something to do with the members of the Acceleratii.

I don't think there was a "somebody ruined it" moment. Just a steadily increasing level of shenanigans from underage kids who show up drunk, tag the bathrooms, drink water, cause fights and apparently don't generate any revenue outside of the cover charge.

@Adam
you are correct with your assessment, although "oldknifey" is correct as well.  The liability for mixed ages was becoming too severe.  The kids ruined it for themselves by being kids.
