A local group of high school students plans to use music to help reach out and become better global citizens.
Liberty High School's student council will host the Invisible Children Benefit Concert from 6 to 9 p.m. Feb. 4 in the gym at the school, 3700 Liberty Heights Ave.
The concert is open to the public and all ages.
The event will feature local rock and alternative bands, including Summit Grove, 2nd Time Around, Slow to Surface, Theory of Flight and Amarionette.
Admission is $10.
Student body President Jasmine Jaramillo said all proceeds from the event will go to the Invisible Children, a group committed to helping people affected by war in Northern Uganda.
Jaramillo said that while there are problems in the community that could be addressed, the group decided Invisible Children could use the help a little more.
"They need a lot more help than our community does; their poor is worse than our poor," she said. "It's just important to reach out to them and advocate for them because they can't really help themselves."
