242 Main Birthday Party for Big Heavy World's 20th, July 16: Mr. Doubtfire; Red Summer Sun; Call Shotgun; Gazehound; Ransom Smith

242 Main is celebrating Big Heavy World's 20th anniversary with Mr. Doubtfire; Red Summer Sun; Call Shotgun; Gazehound; and Ransom Smith on Saturday, July 16! Join us with our friends at '242' who have been a beating heart of Vermont's independent, underground music for longer than a lot of us have been alive. The space that everyone knows as 242 Main will be closing in December, so come out for this birthday concert to experience some of Burlington's most important music history before it's gone. 242 Main is located on Main Street inside Memorial Auditorium — easy to walk to from downtown, and there's parking behind the building, shared with the library. 242 Main is Burlington's teen center and the oldest, longest-running all-ages punk rock venue in the United States. The show is all ages and 242 Main is wheelchair accessible.

(Thank you, 242 Main, for being so nice to us!).

242 Main. America's Oldest All Ages Venue (since 1984)! Burlington, VT. Doors at 7 PM. Show at 7:30 PM. $5. Substance free.
