Vocal Band Aid concert set for Oct. 8

MIT graduate students Liz Baraff (brain and cognitive sciences) and Mike King (mechanical engineering) are continuing an effort to raise funds for music education programs in Greater Boston schools. Vocal Band Aid, a benefit concert featuring local and national bands, will be held Saturday, Oct. 8, at 7:30 p.m. at the Somerville Theater in Davis Square.

Last year's inaugural concert raised more than $5,000 for teaching materials and instruments for Everett and Boston schools. Baraff and King are members of the band Integration by Parts, which is hosting the event; the concert will also feature the groups M-Pact, Vote for Pedro, Similar Jones and Downtown Crossing.

Tickets ($25) are available in person through the Somerville Theater box office, (617) 625-4088 or, for an additional fee, through Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com). For more information, call (617) 251-8410 or e-mail info@vocalbandaid.org or see www.vocalbandaid.org.
