Bullstock is Back

Who said youth was wasted on the young? Following is a press release sent to us from young gun and Kevin Coss who is organizing this years Bullstock Concert, the Woodstock of Lake Forest.

El Toro High School’s 14th Annual “Bullstock” Concert, featuring 8 up-and-coming local garage bands, will be held in the school’s Charger Hall on Friday, May 22, from 6:00 to 11:00 pm. Tickets will be available at the door for just $5.00 per person, with all proceeds benefiting the Second Harvest Food Bank.

Bullstock was created in 1996 as a benefit concert. Over the years the students have raised over $8,000 for a variety of causes. This year the students organizing the event felt strongly that the concert should benefit the local community.

“With so many families really hurting right now, including the families of some of our friends here at school, we know that the local food banks are facing unusually high demand,” explains event Co-Chair Kevin Coss. “Our goal is to raise over $800, so we can do our part to alleviate hunger here in Orange County.”

The annual Bullstock concert is a chance for students and community members to enjoy great talent at an affordable price. Organized by the school’s Music Appreciation Club, the concert features bands whose members have ties to the school. Many of the bands showcased have also played at other local concert venues, including the Whisky A Go Go, Hogue Barmichael’s, and Chain Reaction. Fans are encouraged to wear their band t-shirts, and a variety of shirts are expected to be available for sale at the event.

Bands will include Treefish, Madrost, Sterling Heart, The Standard Affiliates, Armageddon, Dismissed, J.T. Rutecki, and S.M.
