Haiti benefit at Milly’s – Local bands come together for a cause

Musicians often disagree on style. Metalheads keep folkies at arm’s length, while folkies scorn rappers, who themselves sneer at some vaguely defined notion of country music.

They’ll all unite around a cause, however. That’s the case this Sunday, March 28, when Milly’s Tavern and Manchester-based Jesus is the Way Ministry Worldwide Missions hold a fundraiser for Haiti earthquake relief.  The all-day show includes pop, rock, metal, acoustic and everything in between.

Nite Roundup includes TranScenT, Driving Sideways, Irish comedy, McAllister Drive and a rescheduled Hey Mama show
