Next Wednesday, May 22, Radio (381 Somerville Ave.) in Somerville will be playing host to a benefit show for the Boston Marathon victims. The event, titled "Concert for Boston: An Evening to Benefit Victims of the Marathon" has a line-up full of local favorites and newcomers alike.
The opening act, Greater Fools, is a new side-project from Troy Ramey, previous front-man for the now-defunct In Like Lions. If his previous band was any indication, Greater Fools will be sure to start the night off with great energy and catchy hooks.
Amory Sivertson is a Boston-area favorite, with her well-written piano songs and beautifully-crafted melodies.
The Rare Occasions are a great fit within this lineup--adding their unique blend of pop/rock n' roll to an already impeccable list of performers.
Closing out the night will be The Bridgebuilders, whose soulful vocals and music rooted in folk and dripping with bluesy emotion are an act you can't afford to miss.
Cover charge will be $10, with 100% of the cover being donated to The One Fund. Doors are at 7PM, with Greater Fools starting at 8PM. 21+ to enter, proper ID required.
Come show your support for Boston, have a few drinks and listen to some great live music!
