This is a free event (sweet!) but don't come empty handed (oh?). Concerts @ has partnered with two local nonprofit organizations, See the Need, Meet the Need and Hope for Haiti, and will be collecting supplies to airlift next week to Haitian relief efforts. YOU can help by bringing in supplies or a donation to the Concerts @ event tonight. There will be boxes and donation jars around the gallery and concert space. The supply list can be found at the bottom of this post.
In addition to collecting supplies, both artists will be donating a portion of sales proceeds, AND a portion of all bar tips will be donated to relief efforts.
This is a free, fun and charitable event to attend tonight. Go experience!

About Eric Tipton
From a small town in North Texas, Eric Tipton was brought up on a steady diet of old-school soul and singer/songwriters. By the age of 17, Tipton was using his talent to woo crowds in the hundreds. Less than five years later Tipton had a succesful career in the Christian Worship Music world. After leaving his career behind to venture down other musical avenues, Tipton found outlets in writing about love, life, and music.
