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.

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