Boston-based band Dropkick Murphys are happy to announce a benefit concert in Boston this Sunday at House of Blues. This will be a special daytime matinee show, so that entire families can take part in the event. Doors will open at 12:30 p.m., and the first band will start at 1 p.m. The bill on Sunday will also include State Radio, Big D and The Kids, The Parkington Sisters, Old Brigade and Barroom Heroes. Tickets to Sunday’s show are on sal today, and can be purchased here: http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/01004A97B311D0F3.
The band have already raised over $150,000 through sales of a special “For Boston” t-shirt with all proceeds benefiting the victims and families affected by the Boston marathon bombings and subsequent events. All proceeds from the show will also go toward helping victims of the bombings, their families and communities. The funds will be disbursed directly to those affected by the tragedy through its charity, The Claddagh Fund, which is a nationally-recognized official 501(c)3 charity whose mission is “to serve the most vulnerable in our communities.”
