Mark March 26 on your calendars as Tampa’s Red Star Live is hosting a stacked night of punk rock for a good cause. If you see a group of skateboarders doing tricks outside a building marked with a red star, then you’ve come to the right place.

This benefit concert asks guests for a $10 donation for its project of six bands of punk, hard rock and alternative acts from Tampa Bay, including Rath, Penny Fountain, The Kutoffs, No Pants Maurice, Pig Pen and All SheWrote. If you make a donation, you are automatically entered into the draw for a chance to win a Harley Davidson goodie bag.

All She Wrote, an alternative group based in Clearwater, released their latest single “Pick up the Pieces” just a few weeks ago, while punk trio Pig Pen – who “play short songs for people who don’t don’t have a lot of free time.” time”—released his latest album Allowed to overwrite in 2020.

In addition to three and a half hours of music, there will be local vendors, painters and artists at this community center fundraiser. And if you have used skateboard gear, you can bring that too, as the Boards for Bros charity reuses it for kids who can’t afford it.

The other charity featured at this benefit concert is Punk Rock Saves Lives, a nonprofit that “seeks to improve the communities and neighborhoods we live in by promoting positive messages of change,” according to its site. website.

The entire event runs from 6-9:30 p.m. at 9847 E Adamo Dr. in Tampa — skaters, punk rock fans and charities are welcome.

There are a bunch of different sponsors for next month’s punk gig, from Daddy Kool Records to St. Pete’s Sunshine Roller Derby League, who you might see riding their quads at this benefit concert.
