Kelly’s Live hosted a handful of punk bands paying to Johnny Cash on what would have been the singer’s 85th birthday. The show, organized by Root Cellar Entertainment, brought more than three crates of dog-related products — treats, toys, shampoos and more — and donated more than $600 in cash for TREATS.
