The wind has finally blown Amy Annelle, aka the Places, and Ralph White home to Austin.
"The tour was epic and very enjoyable until a bad twist of fate on the way back into town Sunday," Annelle reports. "Ralph's dog Stella got bit in the face by a rattlesnake by the Llano River. She is a trooper and it looks like she is going to make it, but the vet bills are crazy."
The Places and Ralph White host a benefit tonight at Lovejoys. The show is free, but all donations and proceeds will help offset Stella's bills.
