Important update regarding Friday’s benefit concert at the Golden State Theatre!

Sharon Van Etten, Al Jardine, Johnny Rivers, Mike Nesmith (recently announced!) and more this Friday, Aug 12th at 7 pm!

Dear friends,

As you read this, the Soberanes continues to rage. It is a very challenging time for the entire community, thereby making Friday’s benefit at the Golden State Theatre in downtown Monterey all the more vital to help us connect, persevere, and rebuild!

By now you likely know the details: Sharon Van Etten will be joined Al Jardine (of the Beach Boys), Johnny Rivers, and Meg Baird in a benefit concert for the Soberanes Fire Relief Fund. Friday, August 12 at 7 pm. Tickets range from $35-100; you can get yours here

Please share the ticketing link with friends from San Francisco to LA. We’ve made great progress in the last week, but there are still some tickets available. LET’S SELL THIS THING OUT! (Facebook event page here

Today’s message also brings the following new and exciting developments:

* Carmel Valley’s own MIKE NESMITH (of the Monkees!) has been added to the already mind-blowing bill! Thanks, Mike!

* AFTER PARTY ANNOUNCED!! Please join us after that show at the Alvarado Street Brewery, located at 426 Alvarado St., directly across the street fro the Golden State Theatre. 50% of sales after 10 pm will go to the Soberanes Fire Relief Fund! Thanks guys!!

* There will be a FIREFIGHTER DRINK in the lobby of the theatre during the show. Proceeds will benefit the Fire Relief Fund! Thanks Golden State!!

By now you can probably see that everyone in the community is stepping up and rallying to make this a memorable, cathartic, and impactful event. PLEASE JOIN US! TICKETS HERE

And with that, we’d like to let our dear friend Chris Lorenc — who lost his Palo Colorado home a little over two weeks ao — have the last word:

“This is another perfect example of local, heartfelt, sensitive action. And it will be a helluva good party! (Which is exactly what a lot of us really need right now, too.”
