August 19, 2011 UPDATE: Due to a series of fortunate incidents, I will be MCing this Room to Read Room to Rock charity showcase fundraiser NEXT FRIDAY.
For those who do know, please take this as a friendly reminder.
Come by and say hi, check out the bands, and most importantly, support a great cause. Hope to see you there!
I am in the process getting interviews with all the featured acts. Once it comes together, I will post them next week as a countdown to the event. Stay tuned for those!
