ALY & AJ
Doors 7:30pm / Show 8:30pm
"This is just the start,” muses Aly Michalka, one half of musical duo, Aly and AJ. From their homes in LA, the sisters Aly + AJ Michalka are reflecting on the their new found sound and forthcoming music- their energy and excitement impossible to ignore.
The duo, who have sold over 2 million records worldwide, return after a 10 year musical hiatus. Their energy completely renewed, Aly + AJ’s music exudes that same vigor- each song teaming with a slow burning restlessness that’s nestled amongst textured melodies and 808 drums, with nostalgic synth hits.

THE SURGERY SHIP FILM SCREENING
You're invited to see a free screening of the award winning film, The Surgery Ship on Tuesday, July 10th at 7:00 pm. Immediately following the film is a Q&A with Mercy Ships Hospital Director Nathan Claus and Alumni Volunteer Nurse Kayla Innis along with our exciting announcement.
The film begins at 7:30 pm
Ticket holders are encouraged to arrive at 7:00 pm so you have time to get a snack and find a seat.
"OUT ON THE OCEAN, A SHIP OF DOCTORS AND NURSES IS TRAVELING TO THE POOREST OF THE POOR LIVING IN WEST AFRICA."
It’s not just a ship…It carries life-saving medical services to children with leg deformities, outcast women with fistulas, and people living with massive tumors. With no access to medical help, sufferers have little hope for healing… until the ship sails into port.
Watch this fascinating journey as patients are transformed and volunteer nurses and doctors are challenged. See them overcome complex cases of life and death in the name of bringing hope and healing to those who need it most.
Join us in inspiring the next generation of volunteers and donors who will help bring hope, healing, and change to those in need. Family and friends are welcome!
