Benefit for the Scrap Exchange with Phil Cook, Midtown Dickens & more

This weekend is a big one for benefit concerts. The big benefit for recent tornado victims is this Saturday, June 3 (check out more info on it HERE), and there will also be a benefit in Durham to save The Scrap Exchange and the Liberty Arts Foundry on Saturday, June 4.

Both nonprofit art groups were located in the Liberty Warehouse which flooded during the heavy rains on May 14 and were later condemned. The benefit show will be at the Casbah in Durham from 1 p.m. to 1 a.m. Saturday and feature ten 14 bands for $10. Proceeds are going to help the groups pay for relocation expenses as they reopen at 923 Franklin St. Advance tickets are available via etix.

The lineup includes Phil Cook and His Feat, LiLa, Rainbow Nerd, Midtown Dickens, Durham Ukulele Orchestra, The Pneurotics, Mary Johnson Rockers, Hindugrass, Sara Bell, JKuchma and Thee Dirtybeats. Check out the set times below.
