This concert marks their first live performance since March.

Doors will open at 7 p.m., safety protocols (face coverings required) in place. Tickets are $10 in advance (encouraged), $20 day-of, via and 236-3154. Seats will be assigned on a first purchased/first served basis. The show also will be livestreamed on the COH Facebook page.
