Thursday night, rock quartet Tigers Jaw will take to the stage –– actually, the parking lot. The band will join other Pennsylvanian artists for the socially-distanced drive-in benefit concert “Come Together” in the Mohegan Sun Arena’s parking lot at 6 pm. 

“The format will be similar to a drive-in movie, so pack some lawn chairs and snacks and help out local theaters, venues and arts programs,” the band’s Facebook account said. 

Aside from Tigers Jaw, other musical acts include Lifer, James Barret, Joe Burke & Co., Dustin Douglas & Electric Gentlemen, Esta Coda, Modern Ties, The Mule Team, PAN.A.CE.A with Aaron Bruch, University Drive, Blind Choice, and ViFolly.

According to the Arena’s website, the concert “will be featured as part of the venue’s “NEPA Live From The Lot” series throughout the summer.  Other performances in the series include Almost Queen on July 17th and Jim Gaffigan: Drive-Thru Comic on July 18th.”

The website also states that the proceeds from the show will “support several local non-profits, including theaters and performance centers that have been heavily impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.” The list of recipients includes the following: the F.M Kirby Center, Karl Hall, The Ritz Theater, The Scranton Cultural Center, The Dietrich Theater, McGlynn Center in Wilkes-Barre, The Little Theater of Wilkes-Barre, WVIA, Axelrad Screen Printing, and Luzerne Head Start.

Tickets for “Come Together” are $100 per vehicle and are on sale now via Ticketmaster.com.
