Want to See the Fuzzy Man-Peach-Experience?

Go to Arlington High School’s STAND club’s Battle of the Bands Saturday night at the Regent Theatre.

Arlington High School’s STAND club is putting on its annual Battle of the Bands Saturday night at the Regent Theatre.

The lineup includes: The Fuzzy Man-Peach-Experience, Trust Fall, Suits, The Best Excuse, Shades of Green, The Chair, and Reverb.

The event starts at 7:30 p.m. and will be about three and a half hours. Doors open at 7 p.m., and tickets are $10 today (they can be purchased at Arlington High or on the Regent Theatre’s website), $12 at the door.

The Arlington High bands will be performing to raise money for humanitarian efforts. The STAND club stands for “Students Taking Action Now: Darfur.” The club organizes various events to educate students on the genocide in Darfur, as well as the new country of South Sudan and the political turmoil that takes place there.

Half of the proceeds will be donated to the Umzingizi Foundation, which will use the money for electricity, plumbing and much needed sanitation supplies to build a room for a daycare in a slum outside of Port Elizabeth, South Africa. Money will also go to the Valentino Achak Deng Foundation, which builds schools, community centers and pay teachers in South Sudan.
