If you're going to a late show, try to find a parking space on the street - it's free, parking in a garage costs about $20 on a Saturday night and most garages are either full by the time you get there and you run the risk of it being closed by the time you get out of your show/are ready to go home.

If you want to eat at Chef Geoff's before the show, you should make a reservation.

A soulful, uplifting tribute to the spirit and the sounds of New Orleans since 1939, The Blind Boys of Alabama have sung a powerful blend of traditional and contemporary Gospel music. Though much has changed during seven prolific decades, the four-time Grammy winners and members of the Gospel Hall of Fame have a global following as diverse and fervent as ever.
