Concert for the Outdoors
Andy Frasco & The U.N., who performed at GO Fest in 2019 and has been an internet sensation with streaming concerts during COVID-19, will headline an IRL double-feature concert Oct. 16 and Oct. 17.
Taking the stage ahead of the main event will be popular regional acts Empty Bottles on Friday night, and Lazy Man Dub Band on Saturday night. Gates will open at 5 p.m. both nights with ticket holders assigned an arrival time for socially-distanced check-in. Regional acts will take the stage at 6:15 and Andy Frasco & The U.N. will be on stage from 8-10 p.m.
Proceeds will benefit Project Outside, with a goal of raising $100,000 for the Roanoke Region’s outdoor assets, maintenance, and small businesses.
Both concerts will be at Maher Field on Reserve Avenue, which provides ample space for the concerts and ability to maintain a strict social distancing policy for attendees on event grounds. All ticket holders will be required to wear masks and remain six feet apart until they are ushered to their reserved box for the show.
Instead of buying individual tickets, quarateam, and household members will purchase a 12×12 area (or party pod) for up to six people. Using apps and volunteer runners, food and canned beer will be delivered to each party pod so that the only time attendees move outside of their designated area is to use the restroom.
