If you're free next Saturday, you can check out some concerts.

The Chuck Mathena Center is joining forcing with the Princeton Renaissance Project.  The annual Winter Jam 2014 is hosting 3 different local bands, "Option 22" and "Jonathan Buckner and Chosen Road."

"The FURROWS" will also be there.

"We love to move people with our music and lift them up. I'd like for people to forget where they are and forget the world outside, only for a couple of hours to be uplifted and inspired and hopeful about life," said Lori McKinney, lead vocalist and drummer for Option 22.

The concert is Saturday, January 25th at 7 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance or at the door.

To purchase tickets in advance, call (304) 425-5128 or log on to www.chuckmathenacenter.org

A portion of ticket sales will go towards the revitalization of downtown Princeton.
