Music has always seemed to bring people together.

Whether for peace, protests or love, it unites us all.

And that’s no different here in Beeville either.

On Saturday, local rockers Built From Ashes will host the first Stop Death by Cancer benefit concert at The Paisano Ballroom, 200 E. Hefferman St., with all the benefits going to Relay for Life.

Many musicians playing Saturday have had family members who have dealt with the disease and just want to do what they can to help out.

And, with past events such as toy drives and food drives held by local musicians, this gives the younger Beevillians a chance to show up and support a good cause, which they seem more than eager to do.

The concert will be an all acoustic show, with many of the area’s local bands performing for the first time in Beeville unplugged.

Built From Ashes, Obliterates, Bobby Biggerstaff and an old Beeville punk rock legend, Efrain Puga, who makes his way back to the stage performing under his moniker, The Branch and the Stone, along with a few more bands to be announced will make up the list of musicians highlighting the night.

The concert will be from 9 p.m. Saturday until 1 a.m., and donations will be accepted throughout the night.
