The Teen Action Committee will benefit from a concert at Millennium Park on Aug. 15, when Red Mountain takes to the stage for an evening of hard rock.

“We want to give back to the next generation,” said Red Mountain lead singer Adam Dye. “They do a lot of great stuff around town, and I like to see them doing positive work.”

After an opening set by teen band Legion, Red Mountain — Dye (vocals, synth, guitar), Neil Ripski (drums), Dillon Olfert (bass, vocals) and Micah Snow (guitar, vocals) — will offer a selection of original songs by Dye and covers of songs by some of his inspirations, including Tool, Sabbath, Alice in Chains, Megadeth, Metallica and Nine Inch Nails.

Dye has been a musician most of his life, and seriously playing the guitar for about 13 years. The Edmonton native has lived in Creston for a year, and organized and performed in a few big rock concerts when he lived in Calgary.

The Aug. 15 show will be suitable for all ages of rock lovers — “There’s no growling or screaming. It’s all clean singing,” he said — and will give Creston audiences a chance to hear some different music by local talent.

“It gives a taste of city music,” Dye said. “You’ll see some great musicianship.”

Tickets for the concert are $5 in advance at Black Bear Books and Creative Fix, and $8 at the gate. The Fork food truck will be on-site.
