From the Daily Herald (my links):
Peace concert planned SaturdayI don't know if this will change the world, but I sure wish something like this had transpired in my neck of the woods when I was a youngster.
Bands Not Bombs, a free outdoor concert for peace [link to .pdf flyer] sponsored by a coalition of area peace groups, will be from 1 to 3 p.m. Saturday at Old Town Park, 111 Third St., Bloomingdale.
Featured bands will be: Agents of Change, Expendable Youth, La Armada, and Phillip Morris. A special collection will be taken to support Midwest Homeless Vets Shelter in Aurora.
From 3:30 to 4:40 p.m., there will be a peace walk and street vigil march to Congressman Peter Roskam's Bloomingdale office four blocks away, and attendees are invited to bring their own signs expressing support for the troops by bringing them home from Iraq.
For details, call Kevin Lindemann at (630) 690-4031.
As a kid I had to drive 360 miles -- one way! -- to see Metallica's "Damaged Justice Tour".
And yes, that was before Metallica sucked.
