WASHINGTON, D.C. – This weekend’s DCW Opening Act comes from a benefit concert to support emergency relief after the devastating earthquake in Ecuador. The concert featured the bands Moral Hangover, District of Cumbia, and The TBA’s.

On Saturday, April 16th, Ecuador suffered a 7.8 earthquake killing hundreds and injuring thousands more. The current death toll from the earthquake is over 650, and it is the deadliest earthquake to hit Ecuador since 1987. All of the proceeds from tonight’s concert, held at Tropicalia in Northwest, D.C., will go to the UNICEF-Ecuador Earthquake Relief fund. If you’d like to learn more about how you can help the people of Ecuador in the face of this natural disaster, please go to UNICEF’s website.

Moral Hangover plays rock with hints of funk, and performs their unique take on rock classics, as well as their own original songs. They have already earned themselves a strong fan base in the District. If you’d like to learn more about, you can check out their Facebook page here.
