Call it a mash-up of the arts or a quick case of amnesia.

Hollywood Video, a video rental store situated on the corner of Neil and Green streets, is not known for it’s reputation as a live music venue. And that is probably because they have never hosted a live band before.
That all changes tonight at 8:00 p.m. when the Covington, IN band, Axxis, will take the “stage” for Student Appreciation Night at the video rental mainstay open since 1997.

Students will be treated to free pizza and able to rent one movie and get another free while the band, which could best be described as “angry”, rocks out for the last part of the store’s regular business hours.

Hollywood Video is located at 512 S Neil St Champaign, IL 61820. There is no cover charge. Obviously.
