“Nobody Else Has To Die” Benefit Concert to Raise Overdose Awareness in Los Angeles – EDM.com
Fentanyl overdose is officially the leading cause of death among young adults in the United States, according to the CDC, and on March 10 in Los Angeles, the dance music community takes up arms.
The benefit concert titled “Nobody Else Has To Die” will be hosted by End Overdose, a non-profit organization dedicated to combating drug-related deaths through education and training in medical interventions. Its lineup, curated by local promoter Restless Nites, will include DJ sets from Black Marble, Drab Majesty and Sextile as well as live performances from Madeline Goldstein and Aurat.
Free fentanyl test strips and End Overdose products will also be available at the concert, which runs from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. at 1720 Warehouse LA.
Overall, the event aims to de-stigmatize conversations about drug use and addiction, as well as raise awareness of the organization’s various harm reduction initiatives. These include online opioid overdose response training, naloxone awareness events, and staff and client training for drug treatment centers.
“End Overdose wants to show the creative community that our resources are accessible to everyone,” said End Overdose Director of Talent Mike Giegerich. “Even if you’re not around, you can take our free online Narcan training at endoverdose.net and have Narcan delivered right to your doorstep nationwide!”
