Will Hoge

From the event description:

Will Hoge didn't really need to release a new album in 2018. His most recent, Anchors, came out last August, reaching No. 6 on Billboard Heatseekers and the Top 20 on the Indie chart. He'd toured the United States and Europe, and could've settled in from there. But there was something he couldn't stop thinking about: his children.

When: Thursday, May 16, 8-11 p.m.
Where: Knuckleheads, 2715 Rochester Ave.
Admission: $20
