Hey, blogspot readers, let's rock for a great cause! On April 3, SouthSide's joining many from Chicago's indie music community at the Rock-n-Roll For The Cure at the Elbo Room. This fundraising event will feature live performances by five of the best up and coming bands, comedy, prize raffles, and drink specials. All proceeds raised will benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation through the "Passionately Pink" program.
Since 1982, Komen for the Cure has played an important role in the fight against breast cancer. Nearly 30 years later, it's now the world's largest grassroots network of breast cancer survivors and activists. They're working hard to save lives, to empower people with support, and to ensure everyone receives quality care as well as energize medical science research to find cures to this deadly disease.
Rock-n-Roll For The Cure event is organized, hosted and promoted by indie Chicago musicians and though doing their part in the fight, they're asking YOU ...ME ...EVERYONE to do their part too. SouthSide highly recommends that everyone in the Chicagoland area to come out and support local music as well as this great cause. The lineup on April 3 will feature Jess Godwin (www.jessgodwin.com), Band Called Catch (www.myspace.com/bandcalledcatch), Machinegun Mojo (www.myspace.com/machinegunmojo),Surrender Dorothy (www.myspace.com/surrenderdorothyorelse) and The Bears of Blue River (www.myspace.com/thebearsofblueriver).
Rock-n-Roll For The Cure will be held at Elbo Room (2871 N. Lincoln Av - at the corner of Lincoln, George and Lakewood). Doors open at 7p and the show begins at 8p. There's a $10 required donation so do get there early, blogspot readers!
