The WTTS Can Concert holiday tradition continued this year with two great shows to benefit families in need. This year we brought Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness to The Bluebird in Bloomington (see a re-cap here), and then, on December 21st, WTTS brought another great benefit concert to The Vogue to make the holidays even happier. The 2nd Christmas Can Concert starred The War On Drugs, and their L.A. based electronic opening act Lo Moon. Prior to the show, Lo Moon played an exclusive private performance for some of our lucky listeners in Sun King Studio 92 that can be heard here. The sold out Can Concert was sponsored by Sun King Brewery, and City Barbeque. Below you can see a few of our favorite flickr album images.
It’s the return of the WTTS Christmas Can Concert! This year we brought Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness to the Bluebird in Bloomington to help families in need (see a re-cap here), and on December 21st WTTS is bringing another great benefit concert to The Vogue to make the holidays even happier.

To help out Food Rescue’s mission to help fight school food waste stop by City Barbeque through December 21st and drop off non-perishable and canned items at any of their five locations and while you are there sip a pint of Sun King’s Sunlight Cream Ale to donate a dollar to Food Rescue.
Then, when you come to the show, bring a sack of non-perishable canned goods. You’ll be helping out neighbors in need this holiday. A portion of proceeds will also benefit Food Rescue.
About Food Rescue: The K-12 Food Rescue Program in 350 schools addresses the estimated 1 billion Unwanted, Unpeeled, and Unwrapped food items wasted annually in America, and simultaneously engages students to lead us out of the mess through their Student Leader Entrepreneurial Initiative, or S.L.E.I. for short. (Pronounced SLAY). They are actively seeking High School student leaders to become the face of the school food waste issue, and subsequently lead our country into a new mindset.

This was the first of two Can Concerts this year and it featured Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness.
A portion of ticket sale proceeds went to Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard, a charitable organization that envisions a community where everyone has equal access to nutritious food, waste is minimized, and all members are healthy, self-sufficient, and empowered to reach their full potential. In addition to ticket sale donations, concert goers also brought generous donations of non-perishable canned goods to share with Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard.
Below you’ll find some of our favorite photos of the show with Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness and more information about Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard.
