College radio station KSYM 90.1 FM will present the 20th annual Alternative 2 Hunger concert 7 p.m.-1 a.m. Nov. 17 at The Mix, 2423 N. St. Mary’s St.
The concert will feature five bands performing with proceeds going to benefit St. Peter-St. Joseph Children’s Home, Alexandra De La Garza, radio-television-broadcasting freshman and KSYM music director, said Sept. 28.
St. Peter-St. Joseph Children’s Home, also known as St. PJ’s, is a licensed nonprofit organization that provides emergency shelter to children who have suffered from abuse, neglect, human and sex trafficking, according to St. PJ’s Children’s Home’s website at www.stpjhome.org.
Additionally, St. PJ’s Children’s Home offers counseling and therapy to children, adults and families as well as housing support services that assist in homelessness prevention.
Admission to the concert is five canned goods per person, or $5, and one frozen turkey admits five people, she said. Guests must be 21 or older to attend.
The five bands scheduled to perform are Space Wlvs, The Ghost in the Machine, Los No. 3 Dinners, True Indigo and St. Dukes.
“Lots of local talent will be featured in the form of multiple genres of rock bands,” she said. “Different flavors ranging from indie rock to garage rock to psych rock with all of them playing for a great cause.”
