Update: Not One More, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats' weekend of gun control advocacy, was originally slated for Saturday and Sunday, October 13 and 14. Weather has forced the promoters to move the concert and rally from Sunday to Saturday, October 13. Now, workshops will run from 9 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. on Saturday, and the concert run from 2 to 5 p.m., with doors opening at 1 p.m.

Fresh off of a two-night Red Rocks stand and ahead of their holiday shows, Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats are taking a stand against gun violence: Rateliff's foundation, The Marigold Project, is hosting Not One More, an event advocating for gun control.

From 10 a.m. to 12:35 p.m. on Saturday, October 13, Not One More will host workshops, panels and training sessions at Industry, the creative workspace in RiNo. Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats will headline a 2 p.m. rally and concert, for a mere $20 ticket, at Levitt Pavilion, Denver's nonprofit outdoor stage that offers more than fifty free concerts each year, along with a handful of ticketed shows.

Rateliff's goal with the concert is to support the youth movement that has rallied in the wake of several school shootings to advocate for gun control.

“These students are what courage looks like,” says Rateliff in a statement. “We are proud to support them in their efforts to ensure that our schools and neighborhoods are free from gun violence. We are partnering with incredible local and national nonprofit partners who have dedicated their lives to eradicating gun violence through civic engagement. We believe that we can find common ground on this issue and keep our children safe. When we see the youth of the world wanting to make change happen, we as their elders need to respond in the correct way and listen. So it is our responsibly to try to learn and to try to create community amongst each other. We need to understand each other better as individuals and as people and other cultures, and continue to make a global community that we can build upon and to continue to have something for our children and our children’s children.”

Also on the lineup for the Levitt show is the Oakland-based roots act Fantastic Negrito; Chicano funk band Los Mocochetes, one of the city's best up-and-coming acts; and the Denver Children’s Choir.
