, Staff

Calling All Crows have revealed plans for their 4th annual benefit concert. Chadwick Stokes (of Dispatch and State Radio) will headline the concert, which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, December 10 at Boston’s Paradise Rock Club. Tickets for all the all-ages show, which will feature additional special guests to be named later, are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $25. A limited number of VIP tickets, which provide early entrance to the venue with refreshments provided and an intimate pre-show acoustic performance with Chadwick Stokes and The Pinto, are available for $75.

Founded in 2008 by Stokes and tour manager Sybil Gallagher, Calling All Crows is dedicated to mobilizing musicians and fans to serve through humanitarian aid, hands on volunteerism, and issue advocacy. Since December 2008, Calling All Crows has raised nearly $250,000 for women in Sudan and Afghanistan and invested over 15,000 hours of service in local communities across North America and Europe.

On November 29, Stokes will be releasing a special benefit album for Calling All Crows, Live At The Armory. Recorded in 2009 over two December nights at the annual Calling All Crows benefit shows, the album features a mix of State Radio classics and covers of The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and Sam Cooke. The album also features friends like the late Ronnie Simonsen (of How’s Your News?), Matt Embree, The White Buffalo, Stephen Kellog and Pete Heimbold.

Stokes released his new solo album, Simmerkane II, in June. It features special guests Carly Simon, Blake Hazard (The Submarines), Matt Embree(The Rx Bandits), The White Buffalo and Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars.
