Lumpfest 2.5: Raising Money for Flint!

The recent tragedy in Flint, Michigan has been one of the most shocking and upsetting events to occur in recent history. My heart aches for all the people whose lives have been ruined, especially the children. The worst part is knowing that no matter what you do, it will never be enough. The injustice and pain that was caused cannot be fixed, there is not amount of water that we can send or donations that we can make to give these people back their health. But, it is important that we do not forget about these people. We have to find as many ways as possible to help out and ever little bit counts.

This weekend a bunch of local musicians have stepped up to the plate to perform together at the Trumbullplex to raise money for the The Community Foundation of Greater Flint. This organization's goal is to address the impact of the water crisis by providing health, medical and community-based services to the victims.

The fundraiser will include performances from CHARACTERISTICS, Caveman Woodman & Bam Bam Moss, Five Pound Snap vs White Bee (combined set), Market, Devinition, Earth Engine, Duck Trash (Bloomington, IN), JP From The HP, Gray/Bliss Music, River Spirit and Air is the Arche.

It's all happening this Friday, February 19th. Tickets are $5 at the door and all ages are welcome to attend. A few local vendors will also being selling their wares at the fest. Bands will start early at 6 p.m. and the Trumbullplex is located at 4210 Trumbull.
