Incoming: Hillbilly Homecoming at Aftershock, October 17
The Hillbilly Homecoming is an event to benefit TLC for Children and Families, whose mission is “to provide opportunities that encourage positive growth and change for children, youth and families while ensuring a safe environment.” They provide shelter for abused and neglected kids in case of an emergency, much like women’s shelters do.
Entertainment is strong on the rockabilly, and features the Rumblejetts, the Rhythm Busters, Miss Majors and Her Minor Mood Swings, and The Phantoms of the Opry. There will also be games and prizes for the whole family. I really want to know what “hillbilly games” entail. Hee Haw trivia? Pin the tail on the blue tick hound?
The show gets going around 6pm at Aftershock Bar & Grill, 5240 Merriam Drive. The event costs $10, and is all ages.
