Springtide Variety Spectacular cancelled

Captain Trendo and the Blue Collar Cult have cancelled their April 18 performance at the Mirkwood & Shire Cafe.

The Springtide Variety Spectacular did not like the booking requirements, said Anthony Beck, owner of the Mirkwood.

"They didn't want to seek permission from the fire marshall for their fire eater act, and they didn't like our requirement to program with other musical acts," Beck said.

Meanwhile, the vaudeville performers are seeking another venue for their show.

"We are very sorry to say we had to make the difficult decision to cancel the show at Mirkwood and seek an alternate venue.

Mirkwood and Shire Cafe offers live music of various kinds Wednesday through Saturday, a 117 E. Division St. in Arlington. For information call 360-403-9020 or see the Website at
