Poverty is Real (PIR) – the Decatur-based non-profit that puts on concerts to raise money to fight poverty in local communities – was recently featured in several local media outlets in preparation for their third fundraising concert at Eddie’s Attic this weekend (July 27-29).
News about the concert series was published in Paste Magazine, Atlanta INtown, Decatur-Avondale Estates Patch, Decatur Metro, Decatur Focus, and was also aired on Dave FM as well as 104.7 The Fish.
“This is shaping up to be a Decatur-centric event,” wrote the Decatur-Avondale Estates Patch. “Local band The Bitteroots will play the first night. Mike Killeen of Decatur, the founder of PIR, and his band The Dregs wrap up the weekend on Sunday night, July 29.”
In addition to the artists mentioned above, the July 27-29 series – to be held at Eddie’s Attic in Decatur – will feature Matthew Kahler, Eliot Bronson, The District Attorneys, Tedo Stone Arlington Priest, The Flint Hill Specials, Maria Gabriella, Chris Stalcup and the Grange, Spencer Smith, and Kristen Englenz.
All money raised for this show will go towards Decatur Cooperative Ministry, a non-profit organization that has been helping to both alleviate and prevent poverty in the Decatur community since 1969.
