PBR and Fishbone Throwdown for Cancer Benefit

In case you thought October would be a snoozer pre-Halloween, PBR's got ya covered. On October 10, the booze purveyor is hosting a Tiki Throwdown in the Yucca Tap Room parking lot featuring Fishbone, backed by a local lineup including Liar's Handshake, Matthew Reveles, What Laura Says and Black Carl. DJs Johnny Volume and Dana are set to spin between sets.

And PBR is taking this whole luau theme to the extreme: expect a Hawaiian food, a full-on pig roast, outdoor games and leis, to surely be accompanied by an abundance of lei jokes. The beverage of choice will naturally be PBR, which, reportedly, "will flow like water."

It'll be an all-day affair with live music kicking off at 3 p.m. Plus the $3 suggested donation goes to benefit the Arizona Chapter of the American Cancer Society and Single Mothers With Cancer.
