SPARTANBURG, S.C. (WSPA) – On Saturday, October 5th, RJ Rockers Brewery is hosting ‘Knock Hunger Off Its Rocker’ as part of its Rocktoberfest, in an effort  to combat the local issue of hunger in the Upstate.

“We just wanted to give something back to the community. We’re supporting three wonderful charities,” Johnsen said,”there are no football games of significance, if you’re a Clemson or South Carolina fan. So, what else you gonna do on Saturday?”

A portion of the proceeds from ticket and beer sales will benefit the Spartanburg Soup Kitchen, TOTAL Ministries of Spartanburg County, and The Carpenter’s Table Community Outreach Center.

Rocktober event tickets are $20 in advance, $25 at the door, and special VIP tickets are $75 with the code VIPFLASH. For more information or to purchase your tickets, click here.

The event runs from Saturday, October 5th from Noon until 11 p.m. entry is free before 5 p.m.

The event will be on two stages with ten bands performing. Some of the line-up will feature: Jupiter Coyote, The High Divers (from Charleston), BACK 9, Boy Named Banjo (from Nashville).
