Rock and Recovery Sandy Hook benefit shows

The destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy was one thing, but that was an act of nature; the events in Sandy Hook Elementary School were manmade, which makes it a different kind of tragedy, one that hurts in a different way.

So we’re very proud to say some of Albany’s finest musical groups have come together for a two-day extravaganza that will raise funds for the families of victims of this horrifying event. On Friday, there will be Conehead Buddha, Dr. Jah and the Love Prophets, Skunk Hostage, The Lucky Jukebox Brigade, Timbre Coup and Way Down.

And if that wasn’t enough, Saturday’s lineup includes Black Mountain Symphony, Erin Harkes Band, Matt & the Bad Ideas, Sean Rowe, Super 400 and the Hearing Aides.

There will be silent auctions and raffles during the show, many ways to contribute to this cause. Do yourself a favor and go, to both nights even, and start the new year off in a positive yet rocking way.

When: 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday

Where: Valentine’s, 17 New Scotland Ave., Albany

Tickets: $10

Info: 432-6572
