Friends with Benefits concert

Three months after a tornado hit, some Hood County residents are still without homes.

Individuals and business owners in Denton, as well as non-profit Mudbug National, are putting together a daylong concert called Friends With Benefits to be held on Fry Street (1209 W. Hickory St., parking lot between Lucky Lou’s and Riprocks) on Sept. 1.

All proceeds from this event will go to Habitat for Humanity in Hood County to rebuild those homes destroyed by the tornado.

The concert will start at 11:30 a.m., with music and drinks starting at noon. Pre-ordered tickets on Prekindle are $10, and tickets bought at the gate are $15. Kids 12 and under are free.

Food trucks will be parked inside the event. Kid-friendly activities such as temporary tattoos and an area for sidewalk chalk art will be available. A water balloon fight will occur around 3 p.m. to help cool everyone down. No coolers, pets or outside drinks are allowed.

Local musicians The Birds of Night will start off the event at noon, followed by Sealion. A group of students from The School of Rock will come perform in their band, UNDER RAGE.

After the water balloon fight, RTB, followed by Chase Ryan and The Grave, will play. The Demigs, then Danny Rush and The Designated Drivers, will close out the day. DJ B Mike will provide entertainment between sets.

During the event, a raffle will also be held to raise more funds. Event goers will receive a complimentary raffle ticket at the gate. Anyone wishing to donate raffle items or purchase raffle tickets can email fwbconcert@gmail.com.

Check out the Friends With Benefits facebook event for more information. To purchase pre-sale tickets, go to www.prekindle.com/promo/id/22815447474755207.
