Lonesome Halos, an "American Maverick" band with a twangy worldview, will stage a benefit concert starting at 9 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at Lyons Den, 1934 W. Irving Park Road, for Doctors Without Borders as part of the group's first CD single release, "BrotherMan." World events moved band members to create the composition, which they describe as a "danceable, positive, pro-peace anthem." A $10 donation is requested.
