Regarding the purpose of the benefit concert:
Nearly all refugees are now being held on the southern side of the border. Violence, fear, illness, and hunger are rampant. As artists, we can counter this inhumanity by lifting our voices in song and solidarity, raising funds to provide shelter and aid to those awaiting asylum trial.
When: Saturday, January 11th, at 7 pm (doors open at 6:30)
