WHERE: The Castle Theatre in Bloomington ($20 advance/$23 door)

WHEN: Thursday, January 11th at 8 p.m.

Bloomington native Pokey LaFarge has taken quite the ride to popularity over the last handful of years. He performed at the Highdive back in 2015 alongside Margo Price (she was an opener for that show... which is wild enough now that she has taken off as well). This would be a fun one to take the trek over to Bloomington for on Thursday night.
