Death Cab For Cutie And Chvrches Turn North Carolina Shows Into Benefits

Image

Instead of canceling their concerts in North Carolina, like so many other artists are doing to protest the anti-LGBTQ law House Bill 2, Death Cab For Cutie and Chvrches played shows in the state, but turned them into benefits for LGBTQ-related non-profit organizations.


Instead of canceling their concerts in North Carolina, like so many other artists are doing to protest the anti-LGBTQ law House Bill 2, Death Cab For Cutie and Chvrches played shows in the state, but turned them into benefits for LGBTQ-related non-profit organizations, according to Rolling Stone.

The proceeds from the benefit shows will be going to Freedom Center for Social Justice and Southerners On New Ground (SONG).

Both bands released a joint statement slamming the recent passing of the bill.

"We are appalled by how Governor Pat McCrory and his conservative cronies have stoked the flames of fear around an undocumented non-issue (i.e., sexual predators posing as transgender for the purpose of molesting children) as a way to not only discriminate against transgender persons but also to undermine the constitutional rights of North Carolina's entire LGBT community," they wrote. "This nefarious brand of bigotry is embarrassing for the state of North Carolina and has no place in this great nation."
