On October 16th, Slipknot drummer Jay Weinberg will be hosting a one-night only charity show. The event will be held at Basement East in Nashville, TN and it will be an evening of covers featuring members of Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan, Exodus, Mutoid Man, Nothing, Suicidal Tendencies, and more. All proceeds will go towards Buddies on the Beat, which is Weinberg’s charity through Best Buddies Tennessee – a nonprofit organization to create one-to-one friendships, integrated employment, and leadership development for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
General Tickets are $15 and $75 for VIP experience, and both can be purchased here.
“When I learned about Best Buddies, I was immediately drawn in – not only to the message and intent behind the organization, but to the attitudes and spirits of the kids and young adults who make up the Best Buddies community. I fell in love with their message of inclusion, and connection with people with IDD.”
“We’ll be hosting a night of rockin’ covers, ranging from The Who to The Misfits, featuring an exciting array of All-Star special guests. 100% the proceeds from the event and silent auction will benefit Best Buddies. The collective efforts of previous years’ ‘Champion’ campaigns funded the launch of their Adult Friendship program, and 100 new school-based chapters – we’re looking to keep that trend going!
This incredible movement impacts over 5,000 people in Tennessee, and it’s all fueled by financial and creative support from people like you and me. Please join us for this special event, and / or donate today to support Best Buddies, and make a difference in the life of a person with a disability.”
