It would be really easy to make a joke right about now regarding purple cowboy outfits and washed up rock stars...but I'll refrain. Because the fact is, Hootie and the Blowfish are using what celebrity they have left to do a pretty cool thing.
The band has expanded their annual concert to raise money for Charleston, S.C. schools to an 11-stop tour.
They will make a stop in Raleigh at Walnut Creek August 20. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, July 14 though Ticketmaster.
Ticket holders are asked to bring school supplies to the concert as a donation to fill an actual school bus that will be on site. Supplies will be donated to the Wake County Public School System following the show.
Better Than Ezra will open the show.
The tour kicked off in Nashville, Tenn. on July 3 and will end in West Palm Beach, Fla. on Sept. 16.
