With temperatures expected to reach into the mid-to-upper 90s over the next two days, the Rosslyn Business Improvement District has decided to nix three of its signature outdoor events.

Today’s Rosslyn lunchtime concert, slated to feature New Orleans-inspired rock quartet The Grandsons, has been canceled “due to excessive heat.” Thursday’s lunchtime concert has also been canceled, as has the Thursday lunchtime farmers market.

Despite the forecast of triple-digit temperatures on Friday, the BID has so far not pulled the plug on its outdoor film festival, which is scheduled to feature 90s comedy Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery. The films start at dusk on Fridays.

    Not the Farmer’s Market. We still need to eat and the farmer’s still need to sell their goods.

    This happens every year.

    Well I guess that band’s NOLA inspiration does not include the weather. They would feel right at home.

      I can see The Grandpas canceling due to heat, but The Grandsons should be able to handle it.

    I wonder if AASL will cancel softball games tonight

    I am dissapointed that the Grandsons were cancelled. Was looking forward to seeing them and having something different to do at lunch. Of course, now I have “Waterworks” (a Grandson’s song fyi) stuck in my head.
