INVISIBLE CHILDREN/CARTI KIDS BENEFITS
7:30 p.m., Juanita's. Donations.

It's a weekend of benefit concerts at Juanita's. On Friday, Invisible Children, a group seeking to end the conflict in Uganda and stop the abduction of children for use as child soldiers, is the recipient of donations. At 7:30 p.m., the documentary "Go: The Schools for Schools Movie" screens. It follows 20 young Americans who travel to Uganda to help rebuild schools. A concert immediately follows, with music by locals Falcon Scott, Sean Michel, Badhand and Stephen Neeper & the Breakthrough. Last year, the UAMS students who organized this weekend's concert raised $8,700 on behalf of Invisible Children. Saturday, the beneficiary is CARTI Kids, a support network for pediatric cancer survivors who receive treatment at CARTI. The lineup includes Free Micah, Catskill Kids, Knox Hamilton and Inner City Lights. Both concerts are open to all ages.
