Free rock concert aims to raise awareness of child abuse


A free rock concert later this month is being promoted to help raise awareness of child abuse.

One of the bands, "Descendsion," is hoping for a crowd that becomes part of a coalition speaking out about child abuse.

"We need people to get here. The more people that's at the event center -- if we could fill that up -- the bigger the message, then we can get this rolling with the state,” said lead singer James Keller. “We're trying to change things. There's so many loopholes in the system and these kids are getting lost. We cannot have a better tomorrow without a better today, and we have to fix it today."

Three other hard rock groups, After The Fall, 3 Fold and The Sound Below, will band together on Saturday, July 28 at the Weirton Event Center. Admission is free. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. The show starts at 7:00.
