Throw The Fight Benefit Show
The all ages show will feature performances by Throw The Fight along with special guests, Far From Falling, Attention, Redborn and All the Way Rider. Green Mill will be handing out free pizza from 8-9 p.m.
In early June, vocalist, James Clark, was diagnosed with testicular cancer and underwent surgery to remove the infected tissue. Clark was also required to undergo chemotherapy to eradicate any remaining traces of the disease. Though he is expected to make a full recovery, he is plagued with a mountain of medical bills. Proceeds from the benefit show will go to help Clark pay for any outstanding medical bills and a donation will also be made to the Livestrong Foundation. Donations can also be made online at www.chipin.com.
"The amount of love and support I've been shown by my family, friends and fans during this ordeal has been overwhelming and I can't thank everyone enough," said Clark.
Throw The Fight will be playing tracks off of their debut album, In Pursuit of Tomorrow, as well as new material off of their upcoming album due out later this year.
Date: Friday, Sept. 11
Time: Doors open at 7:00 p.m., free Green Mill pizza from 8-9 p.m.
Where: The Rock, 2029 Woodlynn Ave., Maplewood, MN
