This Saturday’s Dump Trump concert at the Southgate House Revival is being organized and promoted by local comedian Brad Thacker, who is bringing the event back for the third year. Numerous local bands and comedians have participated in the show the past two years, and many more will be on hand for this year’s event.

Dump Trump III’s woke musical participants include Breaking Glass,  Draculas, Eugenius, ForestFox, Lipstick Fiction, Mariel, Mason Hall Rhythm & Blues Revue, Office Party and Kate Wakefield. Comedy will be provided by Jay Armstrong, Glenn Childress, Justin Schafer and “Donald Trump’s Twitter Account,” which is probably literal and not the name of a new local improv group.

Showtime is 8 p.m. and tickets are $5 in advance (here) or $8 at the door. Proceeds benefit Proclaim Justice (, which fights for wrongfully convicted and incarcerated citizens.

Hopefully, this will be the final Dump Trump event — Thacker says, “I am doing these every summer until Trump is gone.” If it goes beyond five years, we’ll send out smoke signals about the show from CityBeat’s underground bunker.
