It’s no secret that the incoming Presidential administration spells more than just impending doom for a great number of individuals, groups, and organizations across all walks of life. We’re only a little more than a week removed from the disastrous election results, and already a great number of punk bands and scene promoters have sprung into action to help raise funds and awareness in support of some of the causes that many of us hold near and dear to our hearts. As we here at Dying Scene get word of some of these benefits taking place in our respective communities, we’ll pass the message along!
Planned Parenthood, for example, is one organization that’s come into the Trump Administration’s crosshairs, what with his repeated statements about completely defunding the nonprofit reproductive health organization. Boston punks Great Lakes USA (pictured above) are teaming up with fellow Boston punks Fucko, one-man Brooklyn-based “campfire soul” act Yoni Gordon and somewhat difficult-to-label Planet of Adventure for a Planned Parenthood benefit show that’ll take place at Great Scott in Boston’s Allston neighborhood. Details of the show can be found here, and if you can’t make it out but you still want to help, you can donate to Planned Parenthood at this location!
