The Dave Matthews Band on Monday announced that an upcoming show in Charlotte, North Carolina would benefit organizations defending equality.

The band is set to perform Friday in Charlotte despite the state's controversial law that prohibits transgender people from using the bathroom of their choice in government buildings, including schools. Passage of the law also blocked Charlotte's LGBT protections ordinance from taking effect.

The band said in a press release that it would donate a portion of the proceeds from the show to five organizations.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Lambda Legal, ACLU of North Carolina, Equality NC and Time Out Youth would receive the proceeds, the band said.

Other artists, including Bruce Springsteen, Ringo Starr and Nick Jonas and Demi Lovato, have canceled scheduled shows in the state to protest the law.
