An Evening with Jackson Browne

One of the true legends of the 20th-century American singer-songwriter movement, the great Jackson Browne has been producing soulful, catchy music for over 40 productive years. His live performances are intimate, memorable occasions, treating ticket buyers to gorgeous melodies and introspective lyrics that fill the room and the hearts of concert-goers. Jackson Browne tours also include some beautiful sing-alongs, particularly for the favorite, “Load Out/Stay,” a tribute to the concert-goers and the roadies.

The girls are also preparing for the big drag race with the Hot Rods, their rival boy gang. Johnny, the leader of the Hot Rods and Danni’s ex-boyfriend, will do almost anything to win the race and the girl.
