The Lane James Band Benefit for PTSD, Saturday, July 30, 6 p.m. – 11 p.m.
The Lane James band has been holding benefit concerts for returning vets with PTSD for the last six years throughout the Northwest. Lane James returned from the Vietnam war in 1970, only to see for himself the lack of government support for returning veterans. Living with PTSD made him seek out ways to cope, and one of those ways was turning to music, which was something he was surrounded by from an early age. Doors open at 6 p.m., and tickets are available for $20 through Brown Paper Tickets, or $25 at the door.
