Music fans and coffee lovers, rejoice – the first live show of the semester at Common Grounds will headline Ohio band House of Heroes and feature Chiefly Palomino. The show is scheduled for 8 p.m. Saturday, and tickets may be purchased online or at the coffee shop for $5 each.

Venue manager Taylor Torregrossa said this will be the band’s second time to play at Common Grounds.

“They were here just about a year ago,” she said. “It was just a really great show.”

House of Heroes is a deviation from the kinds of acts Common Grounds management usually books, Torregrossa said.

“It’s kind of a different feel than what we have a lot of the time,” she said. “We always have fun switching it up.”

Torregrossa said she understands customers who enjoy genres of music outside the coffee shop’s more folky or indie selections.

“I know I’m a way bigger fan of rock music, so I’m always excited when we get rock bands in,” she said.

In the end, Torregrossa said she hopes guests have a good exwperience at the concert.

“Our number one goal is for every show at Common Grounds to be a great show,”  Torregrossa said. “We just hope they enjoy it, they have a great time and that the music is great.”
