PORT CHESTER, N.Y. -- The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester is set to honor the 25th anniversary of the NYC club Wetlands.

The Capitol will host two nights with moe. and special guests on Feb. 7 and 8. The performances will honor Wetlands, which opened in 1989 and was run by Capitol owner Peter Shapiro from 1997 until its closing in 2001. The club "merged live music with environmental activism and hosted the first NYC performances by the likes of Pearl Jam, Dave Matthews Band, Phish and Oasis," representatives said.

"Wetlands was one of those legendary places that every band in our scene aspired to reach one day," said moe.'s Al Schnier in a press release. "More than any other gig we played, it felt like everything was riding on our Wetlands shows every time we played there. You could sense that energy in the shows too. So many great artists played the room, packed to the rafters with fans ? hot, sweaty, and rocking until well past 4 a.m."

A group of Wetlands alumni are set to join moe. for the performances. The show promises to include John Medeski (Medeski Martin & Wood), Chris Barron (Spin Doctors), Aaron Maxwell (God Street Wine), Fuzz and Jen Durkin (Deep Banana Blackout), Dave Masucci (The Authority), Scott Murawski (Max Creek), Reid Genauer (Strangefolk), and "The Ringers" featuring Jimmy Herring (Aquarium Rescue Unit), Wayne Krantz (Steely Dan, Bill Cobham), Michael Landau (Joni Mithcell, Michael Jackson, James Taylor), Keith Carlock (Sting, John Mayer, Steely Dan), and Étienne M'bappé (John McLaughlin).

Tickets for the show range from $38 to $55. The shows begin at 8 p.m., Feb. 7 and 8 at The Capitol. For more information, or to buy tickets, visit The Capitol website .
