Incubus, Weezer, Offspring and Social Distortion are among the bands hoping to mobilize the youth of America to "do something."
The Levi's/KROQ Inland Invasion raids the stage of the G.H. Blockbuster Pavilion in Devore, California, on August 25 for the first "Do Something Day," according to the event's publicist. The purpose of the all-day concert, sponsored by the jeans company and the Los Angeles radio station, is to encourage young people to commit to a social cause they believe in.
Beastie Boy Mike D., Mix Master Mike, Pennywise, Long Beach Dub All Stars, Cold, Adema and Puddle of Mudd round out the concert lineup.
In addition to the music, booths will inform attendees where they can learn about various nonprofit organizations and issues pertaining to young people.
A portion of the ticket sales will benefit the Do Something organization, a nonprofit nationwide network founded by former "Melrose Place" actor Andrew Shue.
