MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Indie rock band Low headlines the second annual benefit concert at Minneapolis’ Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery.

Tickets are now on sale for the June 9 performance. Proceeds will help support efforts to restore the historic steel and limestone pillar fence on the cemetery’s border.

Nearly 1,500 people attended last year’s cemetery benefit concert featuring Jeremy Messersmith. That concert was recognized as best community project at the 21st annual Minneapolis Preservation Awards.

The Pioneers and Soldiers Cemetery had its first burial in 1853. The cemetery contains the graves of some of the first settlers of Minneapolis.

Tickets are $16 in advance and $20 at the show. Gates open at 4:30 p.m. Opening act Zoo Animal performs at 5:30 p.m. and Low takes the stage at 7 p.m.
