ON THE ROAD: John Brodeur - Upcoming Shows

One of my new favorites! John Brodeur has a handful of upcoming shows in PA, NY, VA & TX starting this weekend. Lucky. I'm in GA, and he hasn't scheduled anything out this way yet. *sigh* Well, for those of you more fortunate music lovers, here's the latest show dates.

MARK IT: Rock it Out! Benefit Concert for Girls' Rock 02/17

Mark your calendars, 'cause a week from today is a show you won't want to miss!

I love heading out to Athens, especially for the music scene. Live shows are even better when the proceeds from the show go towards a great cause, like Athens' very own, Girls' Rock. This an organization that builds confidence and encourages creativity of female youth by empowering them through music during a week of summer camp. How awesome is that? For more about the organization visit: www.girlsrockathens.org.

Rock it Out!
Benefit Concert for Girls' Rock

Doors open a 9 p.m., and the show starts at 9:30 p.m.

“All of the proceeds will go towards scholarships for girls who are unable to attend the 2010 summer camp unless they receive financial aid,” said Calley Payne, Girls’ Rock executive director. “The money will fund a girl’s attendance including food, supplies, insurance and instruction.”

So, you not only get to see talented artists performing, but you get to help out a great cause too. And that...ROCKS! See you there!
