It’s been a doozy of a week for artists canceling North Carolina concert dates over HB 2—yesterday alone found both Boston and Pearl Jam announcing that they were scrapping their spring dates in the state, joining a growing list of other nixed appearances.
But a big crop of local musicians are standing their ground with a day-long benefit at the Haw River Ballroom. The lineup includes local institutions Tres Chicas, Southern Culture on the Skids, The Veldt, The Connells, and The Backsliders, with Sarah Shook and the Disarmers, The Love Language, Brett Harris, Shirlette Ammons, and others joining, too. You can see the full line-up here.
The show goes down Sunday, May 15, kicking off at noon. All of the ticket sales will benefit Equality NC, and the concert will also celebrate the release of the collaborative Don’t Be Mean to People saison. Tickets are on sale now.
