An upcoming concert at Middle Tennessee State University will be more than a feast for the ears — it’ll also provide a good meal for hungry students and community neighbors in need.
The MTSU Can Jam, set for Monday, Nov. 19, in the Tennessee Room of the James Union Building, features three great bands for one low price: one can of nonperishable food per person.
All proceeds will benefit the MTSU Student Food Pantry and Second Harvest Food Bank, and the event is open to the public.
Farewell Fighter, Candace Brown and Tell Romeo I Hate Him will perform beginning at 7 p.m. as part of the festivities, which is co-sponsored by the Student Government Association and the Center for Student Involvement and Leadership.
Nashville pop-rock quartet Farewell Fighter topped Alternative Press Magazine’s list of 2010’s top unsigned bands in North America.
Tell Romeo I Hate Him’s members hail from various Southern cities, but the Nashville music scene has welcomed their pop-punk mix that incorporates their histories with violin, trumpet and saxophone along with the more standard guitar, bass and drums.
