On September 25, ONCE Somerville joins the Concert Across America with a lineup featuring the Boston Rock Opera, Abbie Barrett & Band, Magen Tracy & the Missed Connections, Matt Heaton & the Electric Heaters, Lily Black, Ghosts & Shadows, Harborlights, and Angry Toddlers.
The Concert Across America will take place on September 25, the date designated by Congress in 2007 as a day of remembrance for murder victims. This nationwide event will bring together a network of organizations, activists and artists with the dual goals of keeping guns out of dangerous hands and making the issue of illegal guns top of mind for members of Congress, the presidential candidates, and the American people as they go to the polls in November 2016. Boston was the first city to announce, spearheaded by Stop Handgun Violence. For more information visit http://concertacrossamerica.org/
