In the week following the recent domestic terrorist attack that took place in the Oregon District in Dayton, local organizers rallied to put together Dayton United: A Benefit for the Dayton Foundation, an upcoming concert featuring the singers of Bayside, Thursday, Saves the Day, I Am the Avalanche, the Movielife and Dayton's own the 1984 Draft [pictured].

"From moment one, I knew I had to do something,” says the 1984 Draft’s Joe Anderl in a press release. “The Oregon District has been instrumental in my evolution and more than just place for us to grow as a band or musicians. It’s been the place we’ve celebrated with our families. It’s the place we’ve made a few regrets. It’s the place we’ve drowned our sorrows and celebrated our successes. It was one of the first places I took my son when he was born to buy a record and just get out of the house. It’s where my wife and I go on dates. It is part of my entire adult existence. The people who live and work in the Oregon are a part of our family.”

Anderl says he hopes the concert honors Dayton and “brings a little joy” to the community.

"I’m amazed at what [organizer] Ricky [Terrell] has pulled off and thankful that so many talented and important musicians are giving so much to come do this,” he says. “I’m also thankful that so many in the community are supporting this happening. I just wish this wasn’t the reason these artists had to come to town. Dayton and its residents are fighters. We’ve fought through the loss of major corporations, the opioid epidemic, tornados, and now this. We are still fighting, but I think there are still a lot of us who could really use some help. And if not some help, some joy. This community loves each other and this is just another example of what Dayton does: love hard."

The event takes place from 6 to 11 p.m. on Wednesday, Aug. 28, at Dayton Masonic Live.

Tickets are $15.
