Find street parking north of Broadway and a few blocks west. We're always able to find parking around 5th West and C. Street parking is free after 6pm. (arrive around 5:45 and pay the quarter to the meter to guarantee a spot.)

The entertainers were phenomenal. Our seats were on the second row. We could see perfectly. However, the acoustics were not good at all. We could hear the instrumentals, but could barely understand the vocals.
