The last time Andrew McMahon in the Wilderness and Atlas Genius played in the area was for last year’s BottleRock. If you missed the three-day festival and did not get a chance to see them live, both bands will play in Berkeley as part of the Zombies in America Tour. The price of a ticket to this gig is also a donation to McMahon’s Dear Jack Foundation, which provides resources for adolescents and young adults dealing with a cancer diagnosis. In 2005, McMahon himself was diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia, while he was touring with his former band Jack’s Mannequin.
