Hawthorne Heights Virtual show
The band Hawthorne Heights is choosing one venue per state to support with three unique virtual stay-at-home shows, benefiting their favorite venues and the band, including behind the scenes crew. The event was planned for Sept. 22, but was postponed. The Liberty club is one of the venues the band partners with. This very special livestream gives fans the chance to grab their favorite drink, put on their favorite band shirt, and watch an EMO Rock ‘n’ Roll show from the comfort of their own homes. Join the band members as they play games, tell stories, and of course, perform Hawthorne Heights songs, all while supporting The Liberty as a staple on the New Mexico scene. The band will also be joined by special guest Mark Rose, who will be performing hits from his band Spitalfield. Tune in for the livestream or bundle access with a virtual meet and greet at 8 p.m. If you have already purchased tickets, you will receive an email with the designated code to stream.
