Concert to help fund Philly’s first shelter for people AND their pets

Currently, there are no shelters in Philly that allow people experiencing homelessness to bring their pets with them. SREHUP, the Student-Run Emergency Housing Unit of Philadelphia, is opening one — but they need more money to make it happen. Local band Fitzwater is playing a benefit concert at this Italian Market dive, with proceeds donated to the shelter cause.

Where: Connie's Ric Rac at 1128 S. 9th St., 19147

When: March 10, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. to March 11, 2018 at 2:00 a.m.

How much: $25 in advance; $30 at the door
