ACMI House is sponsoring an anti-violence concert, “Band Against Violence,” on April 6, at the Altus City Auditorium and is looking for bands to “donate their time and talent for this event.”
“The event is being held to raise awareness of violence within the community, and also to have some good old fashioned fun,” says Lori of ACMI house.
