One of the only disappointments of that deluge on day two of this summer’s XPoNential Music Festival — aside from the momentary sogginess, of course — was that Josh Ritter and the Royal City Band were unable to reschedule their River Stage set for later in the weekend. Many of you were bummed. Many of us were bummed. Hell, I’m sure Josh and the band were bummed. Which is why it’s great to see that he’ll be moving back through the area this autumn.
Ritter and the band will appear on Wednesday, October ...
