If you book them, they will come, right? Dan Sartain was scheduled to appear at The End on Saturday night. But by 11:30 p.m., after already pushing the start time back to 10:30, there was no sign of the celebrated Alabamian indie roots rocker — Sartain was a certifiable no-call/no-show. It was then, during first-at-bat opener Phil Hummer and the White Falcons’ set, that the club decided to abort the show and refund disappointed and perplexed patrons. Sartian’s direct support, Denney and the Jets, also did not play, though they did show.

Show promoter Jesse Baker tells the Scene that, over the course of the evening, Sartain’s booking agent could not contact the singer and expressed that his management was at a loss too. Two days later, Baker says, he still hasn’t heard a word from the Sartain camp explaining, apologizing, or updating him on the artist’s outright stand up, which forced him to refund about 15 patrons’ $8-$10 admission fee and turn away others at the door.

Saturday night’s End appearance was to be Sartain’s first after canceling an eight-date string of shows, citing a family emergency.

So, anyone heard from Dan? If so, is he safe and sound? If not, should we be worried?
