The Downtown Artery will be hosting a coat drive on January 2, 2016, and when you bring a clean coat to donate to the United Way of Larimer County, you'll get yourself in the doors for the Home Fried Boogaloo show admission free.

Start digging those old pea coats, parkas and puffers out of your closet, so you can drop them off at the Artery, because not only will your donation get you into a great night of live music in Old Town, but it'll keep someone warm, too.

If you're like me, you probably have too many coats anyway, and it's days and nights like the ones we've been having in Northern Colorado that make you realize - it gets really cold here. So, why not kick off the new year by helping out those in need here in our community (and maybe downsizing that closet of yours)?

If you miss the show, you can also donate old winter gear here.
