High school students have heart. On February 4, a special concert featuring six local bands will take place at Liberty High School (2700 Liberty Heights Ave.) to benefit the non-profit Invisible Children organization.
According to student council co-advisor Amanda Zunno, Liberty’s student body president, Jasmine Jaramillo, brainstormed the benefit concert idea after being introduced to the Invisible Children documentary at a state-wide student council conference. The film sheds light on Northern Uganda’s child soldiers.
Theory of Flight, Ashbury, Slow to Surface, Amarionette, Summit Grove and 2nd Time Around volunteered to play the show, which will take place in Liberty’s gymnasium. Doors open at 5 p.m. Admission is $10. Proceeds will go toward Invisible Children programs to encourage peace and to educate the youth affected by the war in Uganda.
