American political punk group, Anti-Flag have announced a special acoustic benefit show.
While on tour through Canada, the band’s schedule was disrupted as wildfires ravaged the northern Alberta city of Fort McMurray causing the evacuation of 80000 people. The band had to cancel their show in the city, but acknowledged the natural disaster by not only providing free admission to displaced residents at their Edmonton show, but also announcing an acoustic show on May 5 with 100% of the proceeds going to support those who have been affected by the fires.
Tour openers Lee Corey Oswald are also on the bill, as well as local artists Ben Sir (Worst Days Down) and James Renton (Fire Next Time).
