Movers & Shakers will headline October 13’s Fallen Flower concert at the Middle East, a night to benefit for the family of Liu Kennedy.
Kennedy, 34, recently passed away after a battle with breast cancer and left behind two children. Her sister, Nita Awad, has rounded up a few locals to remember Liu and help raise some coin for the kids.
“My sister was diagnosed at 29 with breast cancer, which for me, being that age scares the crap out of me,” Awad wrote in an email. “I am doing this benefit for her kids and to make people aware of how this disease takes lives.”
Boston's rootsy rock dudes Movers & Shakers, who will wrap up their 2010 live slate Wednesday night and reportedly spend the rest of the year working on a new release, will be joined on stage by Providence’s Pistol Shot Gypsy, Banditas, Faces On Film’s Mike Fiore and Riki Rocksteady.
“I feel like we all like to rock out, so why not do it for a cause?” Awad wrote. “It could be anyone of us next. We all should have each other’s back.”
Doors are at 8 p.m., it’s an 18-plus show, and tickets are $12 at the door ($10 in advance). There will be raffles and other fun stuff to help pad the Kennedy family donation.
