DOORS: 7:30pm
SHOW: 8:00pm

Are you a diehard Coldplay fan? Does Chris Martin's voice bring you back to sharing an afternoon with your class crush in 9th grade honors English when you were randomly grouped together to grade each other's short essays, which was complicated because you saw they had some serious grammar issues but you didnt want to be thaaaaaat person who would blow a slim chance at teenage romantic human interaction for the sake of academic integrity, but you still wanted to look like you were taking it seriously as not to appear mentally weak so you heavily dilute your criticims to appear reliable and honest, then you never spoke in person again?

I'm no 'scientist', but If you are craving some nostalgia and pure feelings, we can 'fix you' riiiiiight up with this tribute to Coldplay, featuring the illustrious Coldplayed!
