Hootie To Road Test New Material At Club Show

The band will play at 9 p.m. on Sunday, February 8 at New York's Wetlands, which made tickets available at its box office Friday evening.

Tickets are $7, with proceeds going to a friend of the band who is battling cancer. A spokesperson for the band's label, Atlantic Records, said that the band will use the occasion to road test new material that may appear on their next album.

Hootie and the Blowfish are in New York for this weekend’s NBA All-Star festivities.
