Indie Bands with a Mission — a Northern Virginia-based nonprofit organization that hosts benefit concerts for food banks and homeless shelters throughout the DC area to battle hunger and homelessness– is throwing a benefit concert on Saturday, March 2, at Desperados Burgers and Bar (1342 U Street NW).

Saturday’s event will feature two bands from Baltimore (Treeforts and Sunners), one from DC (Atlas At Last) and a musician from Northern Virginia (Oklahoma Car Crash). The show starts at 9 pm, doors open at 8:30 pm; there is a suggested donation.

According to Clarissa Villondo, co-founder and current chair of Indie Bands with a Mission, donations collected from the show will go to help Indie Bands with a Mission file for a 501(c)(3) nonprofit status.
