James Jackson, Jr. And Adam Enright Bring I JUST WANTED TO WEAR THIS to The Green Room 42
It's happening. Adam Enright and James Jackson Jr. are coming to The Green Room 42. Together. For the first time. Why?
In a world full of hashtags, how do you handle life's important decisions? Caught between a rock and a hard place, flats or heels, belting or a healthy mix - two old friends will discover life isn't half-bad. You can be lovers AND haters - of everything! Take away the pop culture, the political humor, and your best 16 bars, and what's left? Are you tired of hanging in the closet with no place to go? Why did you even come out tonight? I just wanted to wear this
This evening is backed by an incredible band with Music Direction by Elliot Roth, Amanda Ruzza on Bass, Chris Heinz on Drum and Jeff Jeudy on Guitar.
