Local musicians are coming together for a concert to benefit the Community Harvest Food Bank this Saturday night.

The event, “Sing For Their Supper,” will feature the students of Supercat Studios, singer/songwriter Christina Amelio, Speak of the Unknown from Trail, Roy Has Fire from Castlegar and Monsters – a Metallica and Megadeath cover band.

“We just wanted to help out the food bank, we do a couple shows a year for my students,” Yanive Feiner of Supercat Studios said, adding he knows this time of year – the months following Christmas – is always hard for food banks.

He said the support from the community for the event so far has been great, especially with the Castle Theatre cutting them a deal for the venue.

“The community is really rallying around helping us out,” he said.

Feiner said his Supercat Studios students will play a variety of songs – everything from the Eagles to Avenged Sevenfold.

This all-ages show will be held at the Castle Theatre at 185 Columbia Ave. Cover is $5 and a item of non-perishable food. One hundred per cent of the proceeds will go towards the Community Harvest Food Bank. Doors are at 7 p.m., showtime is 7:30.
