NEEDTO BREATHE rock/alternative band will headline a March 27 benefit concert sponsored by Samford University's Student Government Association and University Ministries.

The concert, at 7 p.m. in Samford's Wright Center Concert Hall, will also feature performances by Paper Route, The Triceratops, The White Oaks and Motel Matches.

Tickets are $15 and may be bought at

The concert will benefit Engage, a magazine published by Samford students. Since its inception in 2004, the magazine was funded by Samford in Mission, a campus wide grant initiative supported by the Lilly Endowment, Inc. The magazine's funding source ended this year, but staff members hope to continue the publication.

Engage is a faith and culture publication designed to spur conversation among college students and young adults. The magazine offers content that challenges students to live faithfully in every area of life, and to think, seek and learn.
