The Evening will feature Doctors’ Mob, Fastball, Glass Eye, the Reivers, Sixteen Deluxe, True Believers, the Wannabes, Wild Seeds and more. SXSW is very grateful to the Moody Theater for providing a large space for the huge number of Brent's friends, and people whose lives he touched through his work, to get together in one place to remember him in a way that he would have enjoyed. The doors will open at 5 p.m. and the show will run from 6 p.m. to midnight.

All proceeds from the concert will go to the Graham Grulke Education Fund.
