Alameda’s Pixton family has battled cancer—with three of six family members facing diagnoses in the last four years. (Alan Lopez’s story about the family is here.)
The community has joined together to support them with a benefit concert this Saturday, May 17, at Michaan’s Auctions by the Bay on the old Alameda Navy base.
The doors open at 5 p.m. and the music starts at 6 p.m. The concert features the music of bluegrass bands Dark Hollow, The Backyard Party Boys, The Kentucky Twisters and The Bay Island Ramblers. You can get tickets at the door ($15 for adults, $10 for youths, and children under five are free) or through Brown Paper Tickets. It should be a good time—here’s a map.
