Philadelphia Eagles’ defensive linebacker Connor Barwin has announced the lineup to his second annual Make The World Better Charity Concert on June 20th at Union Transfer. This year’s lineup includes indie-rocker Mac Demarco, the Houston soul band The Suffers, and Philly’s electronica group Marian Hill.
6/1/15 Update: Parquet Courts have been added to the lineup.
Barwin’s Make The World Better foundation is dedicated to “enriching the lives of our youth by providing safe and fun spaces for artistic and athletic play and development.” Last year’s benefit, featuring Kurt Vile, The Districts, and the Tontons raised $185,000 to transform Ralph Brooks Park in South Philadelphia.
As with last year, 100% of the ticket and bar proceeds from this year’s event will be donated and then matched by Connor’s Make The World Better Project. This year’s money will go to a new rehab project for Smith Playground in South Philadelphia. General admission tickets are $20. For those interested in the limited VIP BBQ, open bar and meet & greet with Connor and his teammates, tickets start at $200 for a single ticket, $300 for a pair. All tickets go on-sale this Friday at Noon. Go here for tickets and more information.
Below, listen to a song from each of the bands on the lineup including a new song by Mac DeMarco, “The Way You’d Love Her.”
