Mercer Avenue and Cross Town Train, two pop-punk/alternative bands from Monmouth County, will hold a concert today to raise money for local relief from Hurricane Sandy.
“We wanted to get involved and give back to the area where we grew up, both as people and as musicians,” said Dan Lisi, 21, a guitarist for Mercer Avenue.
The show will take place at Northside Tinton Falls Firehouse on 35 Springdale Ave. in Tinton Falls on Jan. 12.
Doors will open at 5 p.m. with a $10 entry fee, with all proceeds going to support the efforts of Move For Hunger, a charity headquartered in Neptune.
The current announced acts include Mercer Avenue, Cross Town Train, Lovelectric, On Your Marks and Suburban Cliché. All are bands based in Monmouth County.
