Bands not Bombs
Bands not Bombs is an all-day outdoor benefit festival to be held in the Cooper-Young neighborhood on May 9, 2009. It is expected to attract 500-800 participants and will be heavily marketed to thousands more people across the mid-south. All proceeds from this event go to benefit the work of the Mid-South Peace and Justice Center, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has been working to develop communities of peace, social justice, and human rights through education and nonviolence since 1982.
It will feature over a dozen local bands, food, drink and hundreds of your favorite Memphians. During the day we will have a moonbounce for the youngins and the concert area features shade and grassy areas. So bring a blanket and some sunscreen. Kids under 12 get in FREE.
Rain Location: The Abbey, inside LifeLink Church and the place where Johnny Cash played his first concert.
Confirmed bands so far:
Featuring the music of Two Way Radio, Hope Clayburn, Pezz, Yazoo Shakes, Jeffrey James and the Haul, Bulletproof Vests, While I Breathe I Hope, Soul Enforcers, & Jessica Jones.
