Yes, it's been 35 years since the 1979 release of Jackrabbit Slim and Steve is performing this beloved and biggest selling LP on a limited run of dates.

Romeo's Tune, of course, will kick it off. Along the way they'll say goodbye to Little Jo and tell the tale of a jilted singer who should be on top of the world. Don't miss Steve and company revisiting a jubilant time and doing their best to "make it all so real." Steve and company will also be performing a selection of songs spanning the rest of his 37-plus year career. Sam Sims & Kyle Ward will open. Doors are at 7 pm.
