Other important and helpful tips:
Please purchase tickets through Eventbrite and bring them with you. We will try this time to asign seats based on the time they were purchased so the sooner you buy ticket, the closer to the performer your chair will be. There will be no sales at the door. Tickets are refundable only in the unlikely event of event cancelation. Otherwise, they are non refundable.
Parking should be easy for those who will drive, look for spots around the intersection of Francisco and Jones St.
