Cancer Gets a Kick in the Ass

Few moments in life feel more fulfilling than telling some horrid, debilitating disease to go do something to its mother that is anatomically impossible, even for a microscopic organism. You’ll be able to do just that at 8 p.m. Saturday at The Grotto in Fort Worth. The appropriately named nonprofit awareness group F*#$ Cancer! will stage a special charity concert as part of the It’s an F’ing Party Tour featuring such local groups as Kites and Boomerangs and Mix Magyk on the stage, capped off with a performance by the urban punk pop goddess SoBE LASH. All of the proceeds from the show go to the nonprofit group to fund cancer awareness and education initiatives. The Grotto is located at 517 University Drive in Fort Worth. Tickets are $8.
