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. Their debut single, released by McCready’s HockeyTalkter Records, will be premiered at these shows.


Advance: $30 - on sale Friday, 3/3 @ 10am PT
Day of Show: $35

Visit http://bit.ly/FTM17C for tickets and more info.

Fans will have the opportunity to be the first in the door through an exclusive VIP fundraising effort through the Wishlist Foundation, a fan-run grassroots nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Pearl Jam’s charitable goals.
