Boston’s Metal For Nepal Concert Takes Place Tomorrow

Metal For Nepal Benefit Concert

Metal For Nepal Benefit Concert

After weeks of planning, Boston’s Metal For Nepal Benefit (#MetalForNepal) concert is nearly here. Spurred into action after two devastating earthquakes rocked Nepal, Metal For Nepal mobilized to do our part to join the people on the ground lending aid and energy to ravaged communities in need of aid. Taking place at the legendary Middle East Night Club in Cambridge MA, the concert will be held on June 20th from 12 noon – 4 PM. Headlining the bill will be Obsidian Tongue, followed by Native Construct, Caricature, Sonic Pulse and BruteMukti. The show is $10 and All Ages. You can get tickets online here:

There is also a benefit compilation organized by Metal for Nepal performers BruteMukti featuring Nepalese metal bands dubbed Nepal Earthquake Relief. You can donate and download the collection from Bandcamp here: Physical copies will also be available for purchase at the Metal For Nepal, with all the proceeds going to charity.
