Fresh off the release of their debut self-titled album, summer tour, and debut performance at YarmonyGrass, Liver Down The River decided to present a series of benefit concerts to raise money in aid of the cleanup of the toxic spill into the Animas River that began in their hometown of Durango. The series of benefit concerts will be called “Music for the Animas” and will take place at the Animas City Theatre beginning on Friday September 11th with Liver Down The River headlining.

After Liver Down The River came up with the idea to give back to their hometown of Durango, the band decided to partner with Durango Massive Productions and Mountain View Artists to host a “Music for the Animas” concert series. “Music for the Animas” is a concert series that will run for the next few months organized to connect live music with the community to raise awareness about environmental issues such as the Animas River toxic spill and motivate people to take action. Please show your support and join us at these incredible events in support of the environment and local community.

These events will feature top talent from all around the country, silent auction items including original art pieces, concert tickets, commemorative posters and memorabilia, photographs, and other auction donations. There will also be donation boxes for attendees to contribute to the fund as well. The silent auctions will take place from 9pm – 10pm, and winners will be announced at 10pm just before Liver Down The River takes the stage. All proceeds will be donated to the Mountain Studies Institute, who will be in charge of distributing the funds to the organizations leading the clean up.

The September 11th event featuring Liver Down The River is a 21+ show and tickets are available for $10/ADV, $12/DOS. The first twenty paid through the door will receive a copy of Liver Down The River’s new EP. Tickets are available at Southwest Sound in Durango as well as at

The next “Music for the Animas” concert will feature Head for the Hills, Kitchen Dwellers, and Liver Down The River and will take place at the Animas City Theatre on Saturday November 7th. This event will feature raffle prizes in place of a silent auction.
