The non-profit organization Mosh For Paws is holding a concert on Friday, September 23, and all proceeds will be donated to the Montclair Animal Shelter, which was severely damaged in a two-alarm blaze in April.

Headliners Suburban Scum, Maximum Penalty, and The Banner will be hitting the stage with special guests, Friend Or Foe, Steel Nation, Laid 2 Rest, Jukai, and Threat 2 Society. Fans and supporters are encouraged to attend the “For The Love Of Pugs” Meet & Greet prior to the first band’s set between 4 and 6 p.m. The event will take place at Mexicali Live in Teaneck. Tickets are available are $15 in advance and $18 at the door.

“Over the years I’ve watched Mosh For Paws grow into a larger event each year. The event started off at a little VFW hall in Northern Jersey which only 50 people attended and has turned into a 200+ head count show. Words can’t express how thankful I am with all the support. It’s only going to get better now,” says founder Kevin Oakley.

Mosh For Paws is a non-profit organization, founded in 2011 by Kevin Oakley, utilizing his involvement in the New Jersey hardcore/punk scene to raise awareness against animal cruelty. M4P created a name for itself and gained respect throughout the hardcore/punk community by enlisting the help of bands such as KDC, Old Wounds, The Banner, Suburban Scum, and Ninety Six who have performed at prior events. In the last 5 years, M4P has successfully thrown countless benefit shows to help raise money for non-kill shelters, set up pet adoptions outside of a number of events, and sold Mosh For Paws branded merchandise. All proceeds are donated to local shelters and rescues.
