An afternoon all ages concert and an evening 18+ concert will take place at Trees. Proceeds from the event will go to adrenal cancer research, a rare and aggressive cancer that stole the life of their twenty year old friend Spencer Bell, who was also a talented artist and musician. They will be joining their friends The Stevedores, Drew and the Medicinal Pen, and Tin Tin Can to raise awareness for adrenal cancer and celebrate the life and music of Spencer Bell including playing songs from Spencer’s albums, which can be found on www.spencerbellmemorial.com.
