Britney Spears has reportedly decided not to perform her outdoor concert this weekend in the  Castro because of the expected rain, according to SFist.

Well, she doesn't want to get her hair wet.

SFist is reporting that the pop princess today scrapped plans to stage her concert in the Castro on Sunday -- the same day her new album will be released.

Spears will instead perform her free show at San Francisco's Bill Graham Civic Auditorium.

Twitter user @mrshaunwillet tells SF Weekly that DPT officials have started removing "No Parking" signs that had been posted in anticipation for the concert, more evidence that the show will not happen in the Castro.

UPDATE: KRON4 is confirming that Spears will now be appearing at the Bill Graham Auditorium. It will still be a free show, but people will be let in on a first-come, first-served basis. Get there early, we'd say.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
