A famous Tallahassee music venue has suffered serious - possibly fatal - damage. The historic Bradfordville Blues Club is out of commission, at least for now.
On Tuesday afternoon, the giant centennial oak in front of the club suddenly split down the middle. The half of the tree that wasn't left standing crashed into the roof of the building, right above the stage where so many great musicians have performed over the years. Damage to the old structure was extensive. Club owner Gary Anton quickly took to social media to say all future performances have been cancelled until further notice.
His messages quickly drew hundreds of replies, many offering to help raise money or do whatever it took to bring the iconic juke joint back to life.
