Walking in, you were introduced to the bar and a merch table, which had over 50 fans waiting in line at one point.The Ogden Theatre has a downstairs and upstairs, which both were filling up very quickly before the music started at 8 pm. Of The Trees truly set fans up for a special night with plants covering everywhere on stage and numerous colored lights.
