Paranoid Social Club and Spose to headline benefit

BANGOR Husson students are bringing two major Maine talents, Paranoid Social Club and Spose, to headline at this year's Music Saved Me Benefit Concert on April 12 at the Tantrum Night Club at 9 p.m. Opening for the bands are G-Fresh and Texas Dent, also based in Maine, and Paul Wolfe of Z107.3 will emcee the event.

The Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is responsible for organizing this annual event which is in its third year. 

'A former member battled childhood cancer and she was the inspiration [for this event,]' said Conor Sweeny, who is organizing the show. 'She really inspired us by giving us an outlook of what children go through when they are going through cancer.'

Proceeds from the show will benefit the Easter Maine Medical Center's Pediatric Oncology program, specifically to allow children receiving cancer treatments to be able to access music, movies, books or games during their stay at the facilities.

'We want people to know they are supporting a really good cause. The pediatric oncologists at Eastern Maine Medical Center have a really good program,' said Sweeny. He added he wanted people to know that 'Husson University students care and do our best to support the community and support non-profit causes within the community.'

Paranoid Social Club is a popular rock group hailing from Portland, ME. They are best known for their smash-hit 'Wasted,' which was featured as the theme song for the cult classic film 'Beerfest.' Spose is an emcee, producer and record-label owner who hails from Wells, ME. He is most commonly known for his 2010 hit 'I'm Awesome,' which was released on Universal Republic Records and went gold in two months.

Tickets for Music Saved Me can be purchased at musicsavedme.brownpapertickets.com for $10 and will also be available at the door.
