About Event ➤

Adam Ezra Group

7:30 PM - Plymouth

The Adam Ezra Group (AEG) is constantly proving that they are more than just a band, musically, personally, and socially. Ezra has spent time farming in Canada, volunteering for the relief effort in Kosovo, and practicing environmental geography in South Africa...and he crams it all into the music. Ezra always challenges our perspective, often teetering between sensitive poet and ballsy rocker, as anyone at our SOLD OUT Anniversary Bash this summer can tell you- they witnessed Adam and his smokin' band raise the roof! AEG currently dedicates around 25% of their touring to benefit events in communities across the country, and almost all of their tour dates incorporate some form of "giving back." Ezra has created his own non-profit organization called RallySound, which officially received 501c3 status in the fall of 2011. It's mission: to help create socially conscious, live music events that inspire communities, grassroots activism, and civic engagement. Having toured with Rusted Root, The Avett Brothers, Jason Mraz, The Goo Goo Dolls, Blues Traveler, Los Lobos, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Dwight Yoakam, and many more, the Adam Ezra Group has graduated from the local Boston scene to the national stage with a momentum that is catapulting them towards being one of the country's most talked about bands

One Billion Rising Seacoast

8:00 PM - Portsmouth

Neoteric Dance Collaborative is proud to present One Billion Rising Seacoast, for one night only, with 100% of the proceeds to benefit Haven. Help the Seacoast change the story of women by raising funds and awareness to end violence! One Billion Rising Seacoast is an evening of dance that explores stories of the most marginalized women and girls and how we as a community can bring about true, long lasting change. The event will feature performances by members of the Seacoast’s professional dance community as well as student performers from partner organization Arts in Reach and Sole City Dance. One Billion Rising is the biggest mass action to end violence against women in human history. The campaign, launched on Valentine’s Day 2012, began as a call to action based on the staggering statistic that 1 in 3 women on the planet will be beaten or raped during her lifetime. With the world population at 7 billion, this adds up to more than one billion women and girls. In 2016, the theme of Revolution continues with a call to LISTEN, ACT and RISE for systematic change to end violence against women and girls; to call on people to rise for others, and not just for ourselves. This event is made possible by the Evan P. Karatzas Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation.
