7 Things To Do This Weekend In KC: May 19-22 2022

Jacob Collier

Jacob Collier is coming to The Truman this Thursday night. This event has been rescheduled from May 2020, and resellers seemed to have marked up ticket prices quite a bit. But trust us when we say it’s worth it because Jacob Collier has the voice of an indie angel.

Thursday, May 19. 8 pm. The Truman.
