We wanted to make this as equitable for all of the fans so there are a few things to read carefully here. Due to the sizes of the venues, tickets will be limited. With that in mind, we wanted to avoid ticket scalpers and ensure that as many fans as possible could attend these shows. Tickets must be picked up at will-call the night of the show (not mailed), tickets are non-transferable and purchaser must present a government-issued photo ID. Also, there is a two ticket limit per purchaser. Thanks for your patience and understanding.
City On The Make, seem to have been graced with a stroke of luck. They were originally slated to host their CD Release show for ‘Keep This On Fire’ at the tempoarily defunct 400 Bar. After some juggling, the Bedlam graciously agreed to help the dudes out.
The Bedlam is a great spot, right off the light rail station of The Greenway. Their roof patio is a highlight..
Just a quick jump from anywhere really, but it’s closest neighbors are Triple Rock & Palmer’s..
