CORRECTION

In the August 30 edition of The Crimson White, a story mistakenly stated that Citizen Cope and Drive-By Truckers will be playing at The Dixie when the concerts will actually be held at the Bama Theatre. The story also stated that a sprinkler system has already been installed at The Dixie when it has not yet. In fact, The Dixie has at least three more months of work before the main room can be opened. The Crimson White regrets the error and is happy to set the record straight.
