Live Entertainment in the North State: October 9 – October 15

 

The fifth annual Rocks for Socks music festival benefits the less fortunate through donations of new socks or other warm items of clothing. It happens this Saturday, October 12 at Big League Dreams in Redding.

“In late 2015 a local musician named John Kirk rang up his buddy and fellow musician Joseph Blythe. Friends since high school in Red Bluff back in the 1970s, John had an idea; Joe was the guy who could make it happen.”

That’s from a column Barbara Rice posted two years ago, titled “One Good Thing: Rocks for Socks.”

This Saturday, the fifth Rocks for Socks music festival happens at Big League Dreams in Redding. The price of admission is a pair of new socks or other warm article of clothing. It starts at 10 a.m. and continues until 10 p.m. Here’s the band lineup and schedule.
