Social Distortion have announced a rare acoustic performance on September 11, 2010 for Animal Acres, a animal sanctuary and compassionate living center just north of Los Angeles in Acton. The organization helps rescued cows, pigs, chickens, turkeys, sheep, goats, and other "country critters and the event itself will be chaired by political humourist Bill Maher and also feature a number of famous faces. All proceeds from the Gala will benefit the organization's emergency rescue and shelter programs to provide feed, housing, and veterinary care for suffering farmed animals.

All the details are here.

The band most recently completed their long-awaited new album, Hard Times and Nursery Rhymes, which is expected on Epitaph Records in November.
