Some of Boston’s biggest musicians are banding together to perform a benefit concert for victims of the April 15 marathon bombing, including Aerosmith, New Kids on the Block, James Taylor and, of course, Boston. Other performers include Jimmy Buffett, Jason Aldean, Carole King and The J. Geils Band. The show is at TD Garden on May 30 and will raise money for One Fund, which goes to survivors of the April 15 attack and to families of those killed.
Just days after the bombing, Boston Celtic punk act Dropkick Murphys raised roughly $100,000 for the victims by selling “For Boston” shirts.
