CAVO show moved to Outland Ballroom

October 9, 2009

Cavo_Remmingtons_gsSt. Louis’ own chart-topper Cavo was set to hit Remmington’s Downtown on Tuesday (October 13), but the show has been moved to the Outland Ballroom. The show also features St. Louisans Brookroyal and Springfield’s own Glass Bottom Boat Ride. This reduced and capacity significantly. With Cavo having a top 10 single on the radio this is sure to sell out. If you actually want to get in the door to see them, you’d better get your tix online NOW at Metrotix.com. We’ll see you there.
