‘Come Together’ Online for No Place for Hate on Friday, April 3

Even in times of pandemic worries and social distancing, our communities are not homes for hate: That’s the message more than a dozen musicians from across the Mid-Atlantic will come together online to share next week.

The virtual “Come Together” concert at 7 p.m. ET (6 p.m. CT) on Friday, April 3, will feature live performances from the musicians’ own homes, which are scattered across Pennsylvania’s Lehigh Valley, as well as the Baltimore and Washington D.C. areas. The benefit event supports No Place for HateĀ®, a 20-year old initiative of the Anti-Defamation League that is present in hundreds of school districts across the country.

March 20 Underground Writers Round to Benefit Disaster Relief Efforts

In the wake of the tornadoes that devastated Middle Tennessee in the early morning hours of March 3, all of us — UMC, AGD Entertainment, and the performers — have decided to donate all door proceeds from our upcoming Underground Writers Round at Douglas Corner Cafe to disaster relief efforts in the area.

All funds collected at the door on Friday, March 20 will be donated directly to Hands On Nashville, a local non-profit and one of the many organizations spearheading recovery and cleanup efforts following the storms that damaged much of our region. Hands On Nashville is working hard to coordinate volunteer projects throughout the city, and we wish to provide resources to help them continue this critical work.

We encourage you to learn more about the work of Hands On Nashville and get involved at their website. And, we look forward to seeing you at Douglas Corner on Friday, March 20 at 9 p.m. for a $5 suggested donation.
