Inspired by the unfairly short life of young musician Benjamin High from New Jersey, The Project Matters Benefit is out to support artists and their dreams. Illness cut this young man’s life short and the performance will be held in his honor for the second year in a row. Bands such as Mitchell Grey, Justin & Alina and Thomas Wesley Stern are set to perform alongside Cymbals Eat Guitars. Doors will open at 8 p.m. on Aug. 10 at Maxwell’s in Hoboken. Tickets will be $12.
