Saturday at The Conservatory, several local rock bands will turn away door proceeds normally reserved for van gas and beer bellies, and donate the money to a national children's hospital.
The "Rock Your Cause Off" benefit show, sponsored by KHBZ-FM 94.7 "The Buzz," will support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which helps treat terminally ill children.
Set to play the 6 p.m. show are:
" Anchors for Arsenal,
" Red City Radio,
" The City Lives,
" Benji Kay and
" The Surely Method.
Chase Kerby, front man for The City Lives, said he is looking forward to playing a show for a different reason.
"I love it. Most people go out to shows to do one of a few things, but this gives them a chance to enjoy yourself and help other people," he said.
The concert also will serve as a showcase for local clothing designers, Kerby added. Guillitine Clothing will show some of its work, and autographed rock 'n' roll gear will be auctioned off.
Tickets are $5 in advance or $7 at the door, and can be purchased on okctickets.com. "Joe Wertz
