Oxford, MS, USA (May 8, 2014) — Velvet Ditch Productions will host an “I Didn’t Do It” fundraiser concert in Oxford on May 15 starring Paul Kevin Curtis in his first performance since last year’s ricin arrest. The Kevin Curtis: F.B.I.O.U., A Ricin Roll Concert will be a free event with a suggested $5 donation.

“I can’t describe how blessed I feel right now after such an extremely difficult year. I can’t wait to walk out on that stage again & give you a concert you will never forget”, Kevin Curtis said.

Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and the concert begins at 8 p.m. and lasts until 10 p.m. Curtis will perform both original music and tribute artist work ranging from Johnny Cash to Prince to Elvis. The documentary crew of “I Didn’t Do It,” will film the concert as part of the storyline of the film.

We’re excited to showcase the talented performer we know Kevin to be. We think this will be a terrific evening of entertainment and a great opportunity for our friends and the community to support Mississippi film,” Director Melanie Addington said.

Anyone who donates $50 or more receives access to the VIP upstairs area courtesy of Square Pizza, Old Venice and more. A cash bar will be available to support the Lyric Theatre who generously donated the space.

“I Didn’t Do It is not just a compelling story filled with quirky, colorful Southern characters where truth is stranger than fiction, I Didn’t Do It is a cautionary tale for all Americans. When you learn what happened to Kevin Curtis behind the scenes, you’ll realize, what happened to Kevin Curtis could happen to any of us,” Producer Hudson Hickman, a New Albany native and Hollywood resident, said.
