and Christina Garnette, who will also be the evening’s hostess.
The show starts at 7 p.m. Doors and the Varsity Bar open at 6.

Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for students with ID. They are available in advance at Eventbrite
(bit.ly/3VH7E2T). Tickets are not available in advance at the venue but will be available on the
