Yes I Can students organizing the "Summer Meltdown Concert for Social Inclusion and Autism Awareness" will stage a series of lunchtime performances at local high schools through May 20 to promote the May 21 festival at Golden Valley High School's outdoor amphitheater.

Local hip-hop artist Brian Bell, ska-reggae-rock band Papafish and fast-rising rock group The Feaver are set to play at the free mid-day mini-concerts.

Here's the schedule:

Wednesday, April 27: Papafish at Saugus High
Thursday, April 28: Brian Bell at Saugus High
Friday, April 29: Brian Bell at Golden Valley High; The Feaver at Saugus High
Thursday, May 5: The Feaver at Canyon High
Tuesday, May 10: Brian Bell at Canyon High

Yes I Can is a nonprofit program combining students with and without disabilities, and staging the annual Summer Meltdown concert is part of the program's practical application of social and other skills students need to succeed in the real world.

This is the eighth consecutive year Yes I Can students have produced the Summer Meltdown. The complete lineup is to be unveiled next week.

This year marks Galpin Ford's first as the festival's title sponsor. Other sponsorships are still available.
