Bill Janovitz, Tanya Donelly, Vapors of Morphine to play nationwide concert to end gun violence


Over the weekend, in response to the mass shooting tragedy in Orlando, we posted a roundup of various ways those grieving could help the victims families and attempt to not only cope with the horrific gun violence that’s becoming a frequent occurrence in our country, but also take a stand against it.

One of the items teased the Concerts Across America to End Gun Violence, a nationwide event set for September 25, the day Congress recently declared the National Day of Remembrance for Murder Victims. On Sunday morning, Buffalo Tom’s Bill Janovitz revealed that he was part of the Boston edition, and now Jed Gottlieb of the Boston Herald has more details:

Gottlieb writes:


“As part of the Concerts Across America to End Gun Violence, sponsored by a coalition of groups including Stop Handgun Violence, Bill Janovitz of Buffalo Tom, Tanya Donelly of Belly and Throwing Muses, Vapors of Morphine, and many more great artists — details coming soon — will play Brighton Music Hall on Sept. 25. Don’t live in Boston? The Concerts Across America to End Gun Violence will be a series of live shows, jams and busking session from coast to coast.”

Don’t be surprised if other local events spring up for September 25 in the coming weeks, especially across the independent venues around Boston, Cambridge, and Somerville. But as of today, this is a strong start, right in the heart of Allston.

More to come.
