Spore Lord to Play HEARING AID! Benefit Show 5/9


A band for whom 11 is too quiet, it is only fitting that Spore Lord is playing the HEARING AID! benefit show alongside fellow heavy hitters The Six Shot Revival, The Dirty Magazines, and The Voltage Cult. The show will be held on May 9th at Star Bar in the heart of L5P. Doors open at 9PM.

Proceeds support We’re Hear for You, a non-profit foundation that works to increase awareness of noise-induced hearing loss and distributes free earplugs at shows in Atlanta, Athens, and Nashville.
