DAVENPORT, IOWA (December 2, 2020) Our all-time faves Dawes will be performing its exceptional debut album North Hills from front to back as a live stream this Friday, December 4, and we are co-promoting this show exclusively with the band. Grab your tickets below. The show begins at 8PM (CST) and there is a 48-hour rebroadcast so if you are tied up at that time, you can use your access code to view anytime over the weekend.

As we all continue to navigate this bummer of a live music year, we here at Codfish Hollow and The Raccoon Motel want to keep providing the best opportunities to experience some form of live concert performance until we can all get back to being in the same rooms together. All of the following Motel and Codfish alums have ticketed live streams available in the coming weeks. Please give the listings a look. For every ticket purchased to any of these streams, a portion of the ticket price comes back to our venues and will help us get through this quagmire and back to doing what we all want to be doing in the barn and the future Motel.

We have two more incredible live stream announcements coming early next week! Stay tuned!
