When your son is in a band, you tend to spend a lot of time watching him perform.

Unfortunately, that also means you miss a lot of other bands. The worst part of that is you donโ€™t spend enough time checking out new ones. Well, on Friday, that wasnโ€™t much of a problem when 18 bands descended on Valentines for the Local 518 Rock n Relief for Victims of Hurricane Irene. It was the perfect opportunity to blend my responsibility as a parent and enjoy listening to some great bands.

The benefit was the result of a Facebook post from Denise Borden asking WEXT about doing a benefit. Next thing, Eric Halder of Charmboy, took up the challenge and in less than a week, threw it all together.
