The B-52s will headline this year's Band Together NC benefit concert.

The event, which will raise money for Urban Ministries of Wake County, is May 12 at Koka Booth Amphitheatre in Cary. 

Also on the bill, regional favorites Southern Culture on the Skids of Chapel Hill and Big Something of Burlington. 

Tickets start at $35 and can be purchased at the Booth Amphitheatre box office from noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, and from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday. You can also order them through etix.com or by phone at 800-514-3849

Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. 

Triangle-based Band Together NC raises funds and awareness for nonprofits through events that showcase and support musical talent.

The money from the benefit concert will go to help Urban Ministries' Open Door Clinic, which hosted 7,000 patient visits last year.
