Rachel Drew & the Bitter Roots  opening  for Dolly Varden + the Jesus Christ Trio

Friday, December 22

7 pm doors / 8 pm start

Evanston SPACE, 1245 Chicago Ave, Evanston, IL

I could not be more excited. Dolly Varden is (collectively) my hero. This show is very likely to sell out, so advanced tickets are recommended. Also, the Jesus Christ Trio (Steve, Diane, and Robbie Fulks) will make an appearance! They're a Trinity, but not Holy. My Bitter Roots will be in FULL effect: Steve, Gerald, Dave, Alton, plus very special guests. Hope to see you! ​​Tickets here >
