Rise Against to Play Concert Benefiting the Florence Project!


Nearly two years ago, Rise Against joined The Sound Strike, a coalition of artists that have been committed to supporting the international boycott of Arizona in the wake of the passage of SB 1070 to raise  awareness and opposition to the punitive treatment of immigrants. With the Sound Strike now shifting strategies to focus more on engagement with organizations in Arizona, Rise Against has announced two upcoming performances in Flagstaff and Tempe, their first in Arizona since July 2009. The Flagstaff show on September 27th at the Orpheum Theatre is a special evening to raise funds and awareness for The Florence Project – 100% of the proceeds from this show will be donated to support our free legal services for thousands of detained men, women, and children in Arizona. We are extremely excited to partner with Rise Against to generate awareness and support of our work!  Stay tuned to our website for future announcements and news about the concert on September 27th at the Orpheum. Tickets go on sale here May 24th! See you in Flagstaff!
