Local Motion: Sgt. Amanda Pinson benefit

Friday, May 19, at 7:30 p.m. Pop's (1403 Mississippi Avenue, Sauget, Illinois)


Although Lemay resident Sgt. Amanda Pinson died in Iraq in mid-March, her memory will live on: The Army plans to name a new cryptology center in her honor, a memorial scholarship is in the works and this tribute show at Pop's is being held to celebrate the 21-year-old's life. Polarized Mind, the Misses, Field of Grey, Seeing Seven and Panic Attack will perform, while items such as CDs, T-shirts and baseball tickets will be given away via raffles and auction throughout the night.
