A benefit concert to raise money for a free summer camp for local kids ages 6-16 with parents who have cancer? Where do I sign up? On Saturday, Oct. 17, the Camel holds a fundraiser for the Virginia Commonwealth University chapter of the national nonprofit organization Camp Kesem. The night features performances by up-and-coming regional rockers the Jolts, Patrick Zampetti, Perfect Slight, Fight Club, Nudist Beach and Reddrum. A varied survey of quality here-and-now melody makers, the charitable rock-based festivities run from noon-6 p.m. Admission for the all-ages show is $10.
