Concert aims to work against violence

When a friend passes away, it helps some people deal with the loss by taking some action. A local musician, Young Ric, is planning a concert to celebrate the life of his friend Tyrone Billingsly, and also to promote a positive message in Stockton: People can come together without violence regardless of color or race.

Artists scheduled to perform are Young Ric, Knowledge Bone, Humble Hoss, Lunnie, Purp Reynolds, Swag 9, Doja Clik, Dee and Don Belagio, and Mondo.

At the event, documentary filmmaker Keith Lea will also be gathering footage for an upcoming project. Lea owns Golden State Films.

Young Ric said he just wants “to bring everybody together in Stockton and stop the violence. My friend died (after) a concert like this. I want to put on this concert at a tribute to him.”

The show is set for 9 p.m. Aug. 19 at the Flamingo Club, at the corner of East Charter Way and Airport Way. Tickets are $10. For 21 and older.
