Official Breakdown played the Rockstock 2013 benefit concert on Saturday, Oct 19. The band shared the stage with local youth band favorites: Stolen Thunder, Technical Difficulties, 50 Below, False Puppet, The Caverns and more – plus, the highly anticipated reggae bands Iration and Rebelution. It was an amazing day of music to benefit the Rockshop Academy, and the band was thrilled to be apart of it.
