Concert honours 5 slain at Maryland newspaper

ANNAPOLIS, MD: The city of Annapolis is holding a benefit concert featuring Maryland-bred rockers Good Charlotte to honour the five Capital Gazette employees killed in an attack in their newsroom last month.

Good Charlotte will headline Saturday’s concert titled “Annapolis Rising: A Benefit for the Capital Gazette and Free Press & First Responders.” Other performers include Dublin 5, Higher Hands and Clones of Funk. The concert will feature speakers including staff from the Capital Gazette as well as Washington Post Editor Martin Baron.

The benefit concert will take place from a stage on College Avenue with the Maryland State House in the background.

It’s being held one month after the June 28 fatal shooting. The suspect, Jarrod Ramos, remains jailed on five counts of first-degree murder.
