BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — There's a big night of music in Boston this weekend, and it's all about raising money for worthy causes.
Sherborn High School grad Chadwick Stokes is the frontman for Dispatch, State Radio, and The Pintos, and he's spent years focused on social causes through his group connecting music and activism, Calling All Crows.
Calling All Crows has its big 15th annual benefit concert Saturday night at the House of Blues, and the charity will be raising money for causes including fighting mass incarceration.
Chad says they're working "to train faith leaders across the country on how to change the incarceration narrative—how we look at people who are incarcerated, how we treat returning citizens."
It's not an easy road back for so many who have served time.
Chad, his wife and Calling All Crows co-founder Sybil Gallagher, and their team are also on a continuous mission to stop sexual harassment and assault at concerts, what Sybil calls a glaring need.
"Everything came to fruition in the film industry," she said, speaking about the #MeToo movement. "It seemed like we needed to take a closer look at this industry that we're working within."
With serious topics on the line, Chad Stokes says it's still going to be a night of fun and music Saturday in Boston. The concert starts at 7 p.m. at the House of Blues in Allston, and tickets are available online now.
