This show is SOLD OUT!  The Box Office does not keep a waitlist.

For countless fans, The Smithereens have been America’s Band. The New Jersey rockers emerged in 1980 with a sound combining British Invasion heroes- The Beatles, The Kinks & The Who with scrappy garage rock. Singles “A Girl Like You," “Only a Memory,” and “Behind the Wall of Sleep” resulted. After the death of frontman Pat DiNizio, the remaining members connected with singer-songwriter Marshall Crenshaw, known for hit songs, like "Someday, Someway," and for his portrayal of Buddy Holly in the movie La Bamba.
