Lost-n-Found Youth, a local nonprofit working to get LGBTQ kids off the streets, is a cause Wussy is certainly familiar with and one that we are proud to support any chance we get. On the last Friday in March, a few local bands are getting together and throwing a free concert to raise awareness for LNF. They’ll be taking donations in any amount for cash, sanitary products (shampoo, soap, deodorant, etc), food gift cards, clothing and household goods.
Friday Night Classic will be headlined by the StarBenders, Atlanta natives that describe themselves as “the half way home for disgruntled misunderstood Generation Y / Z.” Think of Iggy Pop playing 7 minutes in heaven with Debbie Harry and you’ll get the idea. After watching a couple of their semi-art house videos I’d say their dreamy glam rock vibe is exactly the sort of thing that can get people of any age shuffling around a dance floor.
Avondale Towne Cinema will play host for the evening with the show starting at 8pm. Opening performances will include other homegrown cuties Cutcard and Hungry Girl for your listening pleasure. This party will be for all ages and they have free tacos, so what more could you ask for?
