2 NIGHT EVENT!! To celebrate the man in black’s birthday, on Friday, February 26th and Saturday, February 27, Thirteen of Columbus’ best acts will play nothing but Johnny Cash songs for an amazing two-night event, with each night being a different show! Doors will open at 7:00 pm with the $10.00 admission going to CD 102.5 for the kids. The show will start each night at 8:00pm. In its 6th year, the CASH ONLY benefit has entertained a sell-out crowd with each show, and has raised over $10,000 for local charities. The over 50 musicians participating in the show will play for free so that all of the proceeds benefit CD102.5 for the kids, which supports local charities that are committed to helping children and families in need throughout Central Ohio.
