Guns II

Three hundred concerts will be held around the country on Sept. 25 with the hope of creating pressure to do something about gun violence.

In Reno, it will be at the Holland Project, 140 Vesta St., beginning at 6:30 p.m. with a local event that includes an “all-ages artistic showcase—spoken word, music and some visual art—on the topics of violence and injustice.”

The second stage of the program, starting around 8 p.m., will join the Concert Across America portion, which in Reno will feature Drag Me Under, Gina Rose and Nico’s Mystery.

There will also be speakers, including gun violence survivors and a representative for ballot Question One, providing for background checks for firearms purchased through a private party, at a gun show or online.

The event will be free, but donations are welcome.
