Admittedly, we have a lot of events… so we call the Wednesday before the Fest Day 0 to give ourselves a little leeway before the Jubilee cocktails start flowing and the first night of films takes hold. Here’s what’s on the slate for February 28, 2018:
The Sager Braudis Box Office (1025 E. Walnut St.) will open for passholder pick-up from 12PM-8PM. Anyone who purchased a pass, Gateway Packet, or Sunday Spree online are welcome and encouraged to stop in and grab their pass, tickets, and browse some merch. Individual tickets will not be on sale and passholders cannot pick up extra tickets until March 1, 9AM.
EASTSIDE KICK-OFF CONCERT
Karen Meat comes down from Iowa to join Columbia favorites It’s Me: Ross and Sissy Paycheck for a night of hard rock and easy melodies. Show starts at 9PM, doors open at 8:30PM.
Free for Super Circle, Silver Circle, Lux, and Busker Band; $5 general admission.
Eastside Tavern (1016 E. Broadway) is a Columbia treasure known for its eclectic decor and tri-weekly karaoke nights that devolve into 1AM ballad-crooning. Owned by the infamous Sal Nuccio, Eastside feels as much an underground music lair as a late-night, karaoke dive bar.
