VH cancels, but Shaw sets impromptu gig

With nothing to do now that Van Halen's JPJ gig has been postponed for the time being, opening act and neo-soul star Ryan Shaw will play a hastily-scheduled show tonight at Outback Lodge.

"He came in for an interview earlier today, after the show had already been postponed, at around noon," explains Brad Savage, the programming director of 106.1 The Corner, "and he was asking us on the air if there was someplace else he and his band could play tonight. Within a half hour, we had put it together with the Outback Lodge."

Corner listeners are already well familiar with Shaw, whose singles "Nobody" and "Do the 45" were among the most often played on the station in 2007, and is already a favorite of Ellen DeGeneres.

The cover charge is $10 and the show gets started at 8pm.
