Conservatory show to rock for good cause

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,
" Glister,

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 "Joe Wertz
