Bees, BBQ and Bands at Corktown Tavern this Friday Night!

It has been all over the internet lately. The bees are dying. Some sites say it is from parasites, some from disease, others from stress, the environment, and worker bees just picking up and leaving their colony, as though they are on strike. Whatever the reason is, this is actually a very serious problem. Without bees, who will pollinate our plants?

There are many organizations working to solve this problem and save the bees. This weekend, a group of Detroit bands are coming together to draw awareness to this issue and raise some money for the Pesticide Action Network North AmericaDharmapalaThe Loveseats,Pulp CultureThe Means and The Static Dial are putting on a benefit show this Friday, June 20th at Corktown Tavern. Not only will there be 5 great bands playing, but there will also be some free BBQ! It's only $5 to get in the door, with 20% going to PAN and some proceeds also going towards Help For Our Disabled Troops.

Corktown Tavern is located at 1716 Michigan Ave. in Detroit. Doors open at 9 p.m. For more details, visit the Facebook event page here.
