It’s the heart of the giving season, but that doesn’t mean we can’t rock out while doing some good in the community. And although there has been a focus on providing toys for families in need, area food banks are still collecting, too.

Those two activities combine Saturday night when Tally Ho Theater hosts the Loudoun Hunger Relief Food Drive concert, featuring three area bands.

The Frayed Knots headlines the evening, with support from Never Born to Follow and kirdA.

“Loudoun Hunger Relief is so grateful to be the beneficiary of the Dec. 22 concert by The Frayed Knots at the Tally Ho Theater. Loudoun is a wonderful community, and this kind of celebration and support is part of what makes it so special particularly during the holiday season,” said LHR Executive Director Jennifer Montgomery.

The Knots—Ara Bagdasarian, Michael Croll, Geff Garnhart, Michael Haddad and Worth Hawes—are often the first to offer their services when comes to supporting area charities, but also perform at festivals and special events throughout the Washington DC area. Playing a mix of covers and original songs, the band features classic and modern rock styles, with three-part harmonies, dual guitar leads, and extended jams.

You also may have seen Never Born to Follow perform before—perhaps winning the Loudoun Youth Battle of the Bands last year or on the big stage as the opening act for Bon Jovi in May. Formed by five Tuscarora High School students, all of whom are classically trained, the band has been performing classic rock together for three years.

Tickets are a $5 donation, but patrons are can skip the ticket booth by bringing a non-perishable food donation. Money raised through ticket sales also will go to Loudoun Hunger Relief.

Doors open at 7 p.m.
