Los Angeles-based alt/rock band Badflower emerged in 2019 with OK, I’m Sick, its compelling debut record — and would have spent Summer 2020 on the road opening for 311 and Incubus, had the COVID-19 pandemic not ruined those plans.

The band found a way to play music during these strange times, though, and will host what it’s calling The S.H.I.T Fest (“So Happy I’m Thirty”) on Saturday, July 18. An online streaming concert event, the idea came about in part thanks to three members of Badflower celebrating birthdays in July.

The stream will be hosted by Badflower vocalist Josh Katz, coinciding with both his 30th birthday and the premiere of Badflower’s new song, “30.”

The event is a fundraiser for two charities: Freedom For Immigrants and 320 Changes Direction, which was co-founded by Talinda Bennington, widow of Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington (Badflower took part in the 320 Festival Online for Mental Health in May).

Badflower’s debut album was a emotional affair, tackling tough subjects including depression, addiction and mental health issues, among others, as illustrated with “Ghost” above and songs like “Promise Me”;
