      DRAIN Tour To Make Stop in Marquette

      The Ore Dock is hosting a concert to benefit the documentary DRAIN. The documentary focuses on raising awareness for the importance of the Great Lakes. The concert is part of a tour to promote the documentary. Marty Lloyd of the Freddy Jones Band will headline the concert. All proceeds will go to support DRAIN.

      "What DRAIN is all about is raising awareness for folks that may live outside the Great Lakes Basin because we're talking about 20% of the world's fresh water," DRAIN Director John Trefry said. "Water scarcity is an increasingly big problem so we really want to put the Great Lakes on the national radar."

      The doors open for all ages at 6 p-m on August 27th. There is a $10 suggested donation. The tour is also making stops in Chicago, Wisconsin and Traverse City.
