FEATURING PEARL JAM'S MIKE McCREADY

MAY 12th & 13th AT THE SHOWBOX

 

Seattle’s Thunderpussy to Open Both Shows

 

TICKETS ON SALE FRIDAY, MARCH 3rd AT 10AM PST

 

SEATTLE -- Flight to Mars, a tribute to 1970s English heavy rockers UFO featuring Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready, play two shows at The Showbox on Friday, May 12th and Saturday May 13th for their 15th annual benefit. Proceeds from the show will benefit the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America's Camp Oasis, as well as the Jennifer Jaff Care Line for People with IBD.

 

Seattle based rock band Thunderpussy will open both shows. The all female group has garnered much attention since coming onto the scene in 2014 selling out numerous local shows…all without releasing any music. Thunderpussy will release a limited-edition 7-inch vinyl single through McCready’s HockeyTalkter Records that will premiere at the annual benefit.
