Texans are having a tough time right now. Texas immigrants have it even tougher.

While Rome Burns wants to help.

While Rome Burns is departing in September from our usual format in order to reach beyond the greater Portland area all the way to Texas. Beneficiary of our September show will be RAICES, a Texas-based nonprofit legal advocacy group that’s been working with Texas shelters to find housing for woman and children stranded by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after being released from detention centers. Their need is particularly acute right now as they work to keep immigrant populations safe after Hurricane Harvey.

Portland musician Chelsea Sue will open the event, followed by new Portland band The Go Cats.

Thursday September 28,  8 – 10 PM
Mississippi Pizza Pub & Atlantis Lounge
3552 N. Mississippi Ave
Portland, Oregon 97227 (map)
$10 (100% goes to RAICES)
