Local Bands to Hold Benefit Concert for State Street Stabbing Victims
When news broke that nine people (six children) were stabbed at an apartment complex off State Street, the city went into a state of shock. Unfortunately, 3-year-old Ruya Kadir tragically succumbed to her injuries and died the following week. Though this (largest mass stabbing in the cities history) was tragic and horrible, there was some positivity that was brought to light in the days following the stabbing.
The Boise community came together in support of Ruya and the immigrant community. Gatherings were had, money was raised and voices were heard. Some of those voices belong to the local Boise music scene who have decided to throw a benefit to raise money for the victims of the stabbing.
Ten days after the stabbing that killed a three-year-old girl and injured eight other people at a Boise apartment complex, the outpouring of support for the victims is still going strong.
Local bands are coming together to throw a benefit show next month to raise money for the families.
The fundraiser will take place at 6 p.m. on August 4th at the Shredder. The music will be hardcore punk. The Facebook page already has over 100 people scheduled to attend. To find out more info about the benefit click here.
