Flight to Mars, a tribute to 1970s English heavy rockers UFO featuring Pearl Jam lead guitarist Mike McCready, play the Showbox on Friday, May 10th for their 11th annual benefit concert. Proceeds from the show will benefit Crohn's and Colitis Foundation of America's Camp Oasis and Advocacy for Patients with Chronic Illness -- two non-profits that McCready continually supports.
Sub Pop band Poor Moon will open for Flight to Mars and includes a member who is directly connected to the cause. Guitarist Peter Murray has lived with ulcerative colitis for almost 10 years and is excited to help raise funds for CCFA's Camp Oasis.
"Having dealt with the physical and psychological challenges of UC as an adult, I can only imagine how challenging these challenges are for kids with the disease. The fact that Camp Oasis affords kids the rare opportunity to spend time and share experiences with peers facing the same issues, makes it an institution well worth supporting,” says Murray.
McCready and friends will open the show with with an acoustic medley jam.
