Flood Benefit

Providence rockers The Low Anthem will be making their first hometown appearance on their North American tour April 21, with The 'Mericans and Tallahassee in support. Noteworthy enough. But now, the band has decided to turn the show, at Lupo's, into a benefit for flood victims.

From the Nonesuch blog:

The show is now free, with donations being accepted on behalf of the United Way's Rhode Island Flood Recovery Fund.

For those who have already purchased tickets, refunds are available at the point of purchase. Alternatively, the refund can be waived, with proceeds going straight to the fund.

"Our tour was way out west when we heard about the flooding," says Ben Knox Miller. "It was a dry but helpless feeling to be so far away. Mat's mother's had the idea I think to turn Lupo's into a benefit show. A good idea! People can donate if they like or just come into Lupo's for free, which is pretty unusual. We are excited to come back home for the show, and also hopeful for the dryness of the gear in our basement."

Help spread the word and, for those in the area, come out for a great night of Rhode Island music to benefit a great Rhode Island cause. For more on United Way of Rhode Island and the work the organization is doing in response to these devastating floods, visit
