Brandi Carlile will play for three consecutive nights at The Fillmore, February 12-14. After that, the new venue from Live Nation will bring in a diverse mix of hip hop, rock, alternative, electronic, blues and country artists.

The Fillmore is being built along 5th Street, adjacent to Target Field Station.
